MicroCenter 128GB SSD (A-data rebrand) Firmware Update?? Tags: SSD Firmware Storage Last response: February 19, 2011 11:50 PM in Storage Share sevimli February 19, 2011 3:46:14 PM Hi everyone, I was wondering what would be the best method to update MicroCenter 128GB SSD firmware? MicroCenter 128GB SSD uses JMicron 612 controller. And I am guessing they are A-DATA S596 re-branded ones. As of today, A-Data has 2 firmware updates for their SSDs, but as expected they don't work on Micro Center SSD. ( I tried, got the error says "no A-data driver found".) But if I check the firmware version of the MicroCenter SSD and ADATA SSDs, I see that they have an exact match.

I thought only the sandforce based one had issues? Before I returned my microcenter branded ssd I read their documentation on it. apparantly its only supported on achi mode with intel chipset (and most amd chipsets) nvidia chipset is unsupported and you cant flash. m 0 l sevimli February 19, 2011 7:13:31 PM Thanks for the reply. My board is an intel x58. I tried to ADATA's manual on here: http://www.adatausa.com/upload/downloadfile/ADATA_S596_... It says I need to flash after booting through the USB port on the drive??? May I ask why did you return yours? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
