BSOD After Samsung magician (840 pro SSD) Firmware update

Q: BSOD After Samsung magician (840 pro SSD) Firmware update

So I installed my new SSD, set up all my programs and files, and was having some trouble with discovering an ACHI drivers (which apparently cannot be achieved on my dell latitude model IDE ATA/ATAPI driver missing?)

Anyway after installing the Samsung Magician software to help optimize the SSD, it said that a firmware update was available, so upon updating I was rewarded with a BSOD after restarting. I became angry and did a system restore with my image disk and started over. This time in the samsung magician it said the firmware was already up to date so I didn;t think anything of it until today another BSOD. If I have to do another reinstall I will take my own life, so I hope someone can help me here.

Preferred Solution: BSOD After Samsung magician (840 pro SSD) Firmware update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: BSOD After Samsung magician (840 pro SSD) Firmware update

Do you use the DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-mini card?
If so then it looks like the driver for it is the problem.

Do you have a spare HDD that you can use because I think the driver for it is incompatible with SSDs. I will need to double check.

friends I'm installing a fresh samsung 840 120gb. i thought i could put the ssd on sata 1 [not zero] and get firmware via magician on my windows 8 lab mule. no dice. apparently magician ONLY wants to see the ssd on sata zero. it can pull up the drive, but none of the controls work.
soooo... I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with the drive 'as is' to install 7 on a notebook, then as first order of business go pickup the firmware update and execute it.

will this result in sub-par arrangement? best I can tell the fw update is non-destructive.
is there another way?

A:samsung ssd: will firmware update harm anything? magician no use.

friends i have a new samsung 840 to replace a failing drive in a hp notebook.
i wanted to update the samsung firmware first, then do the install of windows 7 x64 but using the samsung so-called Magician, trying the drive on sata 1 [instead of 0] it still cannot properly register the drive. all I get is the SMART info - everything else is neutered. illogical... how does samsung want to update firmware? AFTER the os is installed?
a little guidance would sure be appreciated.

Can't seem to find an answer to my question - Does the firmware update mean I have to reinstall windows? I have done firmware updates on other devices in the past, but not on a "boot" device, so just need an answer.

Edit: According to samsung it does not wipe HD, but just wanted people who have done an "inplace upgrade" to answer.

Edit: It worked fine through magician.

Samsung has recently posted firmware update EXM03B6Q for the 850 Pro on the download site.
I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

I turned on my computer and a message popped up to update my 3 month old Samsung firmware.
I used Magician 4.5, pushed the button, and it said "failed to update drive with new firmware".
Oh? When I rebooted later my OS would not boot. I went into the bios and it ID'd the drive as Samsung 3.
Now I can't boot the drive at all. I burned the ISO of the firmware update but it can NOT find the drive in DOS. If I boot with another drive and the ruined drive together, both Samsung 840 Pro and Samsung 850 Pro, it jams the boot until I remove the damaged drive. Anybody have any knowledge or any ideas?

I have ordered a Samsung 840 EVO SSD and will be installing it in a few days. While looking at the manuals on Samsung's support page, I was reading the procedures for using the Magician software. After the system requirements, which my system is well over the minimums, there is a section on Driver Support. In this section, the table says that AMD chipsets are not supported.

What does this mean? I have an ASUS mobo with an AMD FX990 chipset running an FX-4300 CPU. What will not work - the Magician software, the 840 EVO SSD, or what??? I've seen plenty of reviews of this SSD and never seen any reference to not being compatible with an AMD system.

Thanks for any clarification on this.

A:Samsung Magician driver

I've not heard this before but you should be fine. I have a 840 running in my 990fxa/8350 no problems. I installed the magician software without issue. I have used the software and I had trouble with the auto firmware update, that's the only AMD compatibility issue I know of. Very minor technicality.

1) Does Samsung Magician always need to be running to benefit from its OS optimizations/tweaks?

2) Also, what about RAPID Mode? does it also rely on Samsung Magician to work properly?

3) Is there a way to keep Samsung Magician running on startup, but not get a UAC prompt? All my other programs start with no UAC prompt so why does it need to prompt me everytime it starts?

A:Does Samsung Magician always need to be running?

I've only looked at the OS optimization feature. It seems to be just a front end for setting Registry values. Once the Registry values are set, Magician running or not has no effect. Depending on the Registry setting, you may have to log off or restart for it to kick in.

The UAC is probably because programs that require running as Administrator can't be run immediately at startup withput triggering UAC. There are ways around it such as creating a scheduled task. But since it doesn't need to be running for the tweaks it may be moot.

I recently installed a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD. I checked first off and TRIM is on. However, when I run the Magician it tells me that my OS(7 x64) doesn't support TRIM. Is it telling me that it doesn't now because Samsung is in charge? Any ideas? Thank you.

A:Samsung Magician and TRIM message

See this page for instructions on checking if TRIM is enabled in Windows 7 (use the fsutil method):

Verify That TRIM Is Enabled In Windows 7 | gHacks Technology News

About Samsung "Magician", it purposely interferes with sleep and should NEVER be left running. It's easy to miss, hidden in the notification area as it will be when you close the program. (That's why the default should be "always show" for new icons.) I wrote about the BSOD it caused me here, which was the first BSOD I've seen in several years:

It was a strange day - BSOD, Samsung Magician, Intel RST, hybrid sleep... - [H]ard|Forum

After you finish with it, visit the system tray and close it through its icon. It does not install drivers or leave any services running, so it's safe to use as long as you remember to close it for real. Here are a couple of supporting messages about Magician and sleep, both occurring in threads where people discuss BSODs and attribute it to "Magician":

[SOLVED] ntoskrnl.exe - Tech Support Forum
Samsung SSD Magician - Overclockers UK Forums

Now if you take the Samsung claims about sleep seriously, I'd recommend secure-erasing the drive and exchanging it for something else.

The only reason I have to run Magician is to use its optimizer function, which does a manual TRIM, which I find necessary to do immediately after encrypting a system drive with TrueCrypt. While TrueCrypt doesn't block TRIM on partitions within the scope of system encryption, it doesn't appear to generate any TRIM commands when encrypting a system drive. That is, after doing the system encryption, hours later, I can boot into Parted Magic and examine the disk outside of TrueCrypt with the supplied hex editor. I've found Samsung, Intel, and Crucial drives to be fully filled with gibberish, whereas if TRIM had run, they would contain vast swaths of zeroed sectors. Booting back into Windows, running the Samsung and Intel optimizers on their respective drives, and redoing the Parted Magic test, I find the expected zeroed sectors amidst the encrypted gibberish. Unfortunately, Crucial provides no such software, and the Intel and Samsung programs won't work on Crucial drives, but I achieved the same effect on my M500 using the Sysinternals sdelete to wipe free space.

Check your Startup folder if there's a shortcut there:
Current user: %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
All users: %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Or if it's running as a Service rather than under Startup tabs. You may have to run MSConfig (or Task Manager if on Win8 or Win10) as Admin to see all available running programs.

It's the first time I've looked at the program in many months. I made some choices when I first installed the SSD, but I'm wondering about some of these now.

Program: Do you allow Magician to run at startup? Reasons?

Rapid Mode: Do you enable this? Why?

Firmware Update: Do you bother doing a full backup before updating the firmware?

The new version has provision to enable "Rapid Mode" on Samsung 840 Pro series SSD's which I think was only previously available on the EVO series.

Hello,

Running W10 pro on a desktop PC with two Samsung SSD EVO850 drives. Samsung Magician is installed and Over Provisioning is set on both SSD's. I have also set the OS Optimisation options and Rapid mode on the boot drive in Magician.

If I use CCleaner to disable Magician in the start up programs list, will I lose these apparent benefits, or can I safely disable Magician in Start Up programs?

Theory - I will seldom if ever use Magician after making these settings so it is merely wasting resources if it is just loading every time I start the PC for the heck of it.

Thanks in advance.

My set up has 2 x 650 GB WD Black hard drives and a Samsung 840 (non pro) for the boot drive.

I have run the latest Samsung Magician, however the BIG problem is that it has stopped the windows 8 Defrag program.

I reinstalled Win 8 and all was OK, (now for the bit about me being thick -- ) I thought I would try the old version of Samsung Magician, and Bu**er me if has not only done the same thing again, turned off defrag and optimize, I am just unable to open defrag in order to defrag my WD drives.

I do not really want to reinstall Windows 8 again unless I have to, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that someone knows how to switch defrag bag on again.

A:HELP - Samsung Magician has stopped defrag

Hi there
Don't DEFRAG an SSD --just THINK for a minute --what does defrag attempt to do. It basically tries to re-arrange the files so the bits of it are all next to each other rather than spread all over the disk.

This is 100% irrelevant in SSD's since there are NO moving parts so access time in spinning the disk to read all the bits of the file into storage is NOT an issue with an SSD.

In fact these days it's rarely if ever necessary to defrag a spinner either --just back it up (image it) with something like Acronis and restore it again. Unless you are deliberately doing a sector by sector dump and restore the disk will be "re-arranged" automatically by the restore program.

I know that I installed it on my first complete install in April, but of course I screwed up with a refresh a few days ago, then finally I just did a clean install last night of Windows 8.1. My next step was to Install Acronis and slowly adding all my software to get me going again.

A:Samsung Digital Magician for 840 EVO when to install?

It's not required but sort of nice to have. Install it at any time.

I installed it when I first added my Samsung SDD 840 EVO 250GB then uninstalled it once everything was running good. I reinstalled it again a few weeks back to check something and decided to leave it installed. Just ran it now and it updated to ver 4.4.No need to allow it to auto-start though. Just delete the link in your Startup folder once it's installed.

You don't need Magician for the drive to work just fine. You may not get all the advanced features, but the drive will be plenty fast.

For data drives:
The drive must be in an uninitialized state.
The drive must be in a security inactive state.

If the drive is used as a startup drive the following apply additionally:
The computer must always boot natively from UEFI.
The computer must have the Compatibility Support Module (CSM) disabled in UEFI.
The computer must be UEFI 2.3.1 based and have the EFI_STORAGE_SECURITY_COMMAND_PROTOCOL defined.

How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware update (DXM04B0Q)? The Magician software is supposed to do it, but when I open up the download folder where the firmware update download is located, the Magician software doesn't see it. I've downloaded the firmware in many different locations, but still, the Magician software doesn't see it. Any Ideas? See snips to see firmare update download location and what Magician software sees. The firmware update (DXM04B0Q) is right below the Symantic folder.

A:How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware?

Couple of things you can try.
- Move the DXM04B0Q folder to your desktop. Does the Samsung Magician see it?
- If still no joy, try letting the Magician download the firmware. Verify it downloaded the correct version.

Hi everyone,

New to this, first post so please go slowly.

Thanks.

It probably can't read re-writable media so try using DVD-R or DVD+R

You can also update it directly via the internet by connecting it to your router and updating in real-time from the Samsung website. The BD-UP5000 has an ethernet port on it for this purpose.

It's light will slowly pulse but it does not sound like it spins up and then reports that there is no cd in the drive. all cd's are original manufacturer copies. I went to the samsung site to upgrade the firmware and it has offered me a *.bin file that has no windows assosciation. when i look for drivers through device manager it looks for only *.inf files. what am i doing wrong, any suggestions to alternate fixes perhaps?

I want to upgrade the firmware of my new Samsung DVD writer (from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology) to the latest version.
DVD writer Model:
TSST corp CDDVDW SH-S223C
For some reason it will not burn DVD ?RW disks.

So I downloaded the latest appropriate firmware file from cdrinfo.com
Namely SH-S223C_SB04.exe which I ran under win7 (64) bit OS

This executable program in turn started up ?Tsdnwin.exe? installation program which then crashes (freezes) the system.
I had to use the Windows ?Task Manager? to End the Task.

Can this be a compatibility problem for win7 64 bit OS?
Or is my Win7 OS somehow corrupted?

Next I installed and tried ODD FW Liveupdate program and it too fails with an error message :

?that due to a system problem it failed to operate a program by
automatically connecting to it.?

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem here?

A:Failure of Firmware Upgrade of Samsung DVD Writer using Win 7 (64bit)

According to this page, you shouldn't need to worry about drivers or firmware. What I would suggest is completely uninstalling the driver from your Device Manager. Restart your computer. Windows 7 should pick up and install the burner fine.

Don't download driver and firmware files from anywhere but the manufacturers website, problems like this happen way more often when you do that

The MP3 player contends that it's memory is full, yet it has nothing in its navigational tree. The mp3 device has corrupted before; however, last time it simply froze on one track rendering it impossible to change tracks without the device shutting down. In this instance there are no tracks to attempt to switch to, the only thing that works is the radio.

My solution was simple, reinstall the firmware implementing YP-MT6 updater--just like last time I had an issue. Sadly, the firmware install freezes well under half way through when it says "locking drive[ers?]" it was one of the two.

Anyway to beet this problem? 'Cause I'm at a loss. Not a happy costumer as far as this little samsung is concerned--i figured their phones were great so their other stuff should be too! Ha.

links to costumer service would be great.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.

My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

I can provide a screenshot if needed.

I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal.  Any solution? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

I'm open to suggestions at this point.

Well I don?t have a blank disk but I hit bootable cd anyway thinking it would create some file on the hard drive. Well obviously that?s not what it had in mind because my disk drive opened, I shut the disk drive and it started saying writing data to disk. HOW could it do that with no disk. I couldn?t close it. It then said installation succesfull. What the heck. I restarted my computer to see if I had screwed up my system and it seams to be running fine. Have I screwed up my hard drive?

It is ok.

I dont know what happened, but You HAVE to burn the bootable disk, and then boot into it after a restart in order to update the firmware.

Hi, i bought this network attached storage drive from Maplin Dual SATA Network Enclosure : Network Enclosures : Maplin

I tryed updating the firmware and got some message in German about how if i updated the firmware the network connection would be lost. i clicked ok and now after rebooting my drive cannot access it. i have reset it and cannot try to update the firmware again as there is not USB Port on the drive to access it directly from the computer.

Anybody have any ideas on what to do??

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.

Hi All: Just purchased a LG GSA-4167B using a USB 2.0 connection via an USB 2.0 External Enclosure. The firmware version that came with the drive is version DL10. There are later firmware versions available, DL11, DL12 and DL13. I would like to update to the latest version, DL13. Can I do it by downloading the DL13 zip file and just unzipping it or will I have a problem because it is using a USB external connection. There are no instructions on the LG download site for a USB connected firmware update. Any insight would be most appreciated.

A:DVD R/RW Drive Firmware update help

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

Nero Info Tool should tell you the drive's firmware: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html
You can also run that same firmware update utility and I think it tells you if the firmware versions and if there's a newer version.

You can try the WinDVD trial: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ca/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab1&tabview=tab4

This is a follow up in a way I had asked about the N-routers and how to get good reception in a large house Based on the responses and reviews of this router Linksys WRT GL I chose this one router to do the trick with the option of installing another one upstairs to increase coverage if needed The price of of these was cheaper than one N router or a router and repeater The Lisksys software is pretty lame I was able to get my computer hooked up fairly easily but my roommate could not get online which is more important as update WRT54GL for Linksys Firmware I am on the road all the time and he is stuck at home I Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL reset the router before I left so hopefully he can get himself hooked up before I get home in days The coverage seems great I get very good or excellent in all corners of the house I see things about installing a second party firmware to improve it further Any suggestions about which firmware and details about how to update and use this firmware Thanks nbsp

A:Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.
