Problems with SSD

Hello Everyone,

I'm having a few problems with my SSD Drive

http://www.kingston.com/ukroot/ssd/v100.asp

For some reason the the drive seems to keep corrupting and fragmenting the data, for instance on win7 64bit every 3 boots the chk disk kicks in to reorganise all the files, and on vista 64 it lasted for 4 days b4 needing a full reinstall. Hw as anyone else had any problems with using SSD drives and has anyone found a solution. Kingston did issue a firmware update to solve a previous problem they had identified which has been applied to the drive.

Any help people would be greatly appreciated.

Full systems specs are as follows;
AMD Phenom x4 955 3.2 black processor
ASUS M4A79XTD Evo Board
Crossfired ATI HD4770 Grasphics
Coolermaster HAF92 case
XFX 550W Power Supply
BD Player Optical drive
Bigfoot Killer 2100 Network Card
Windows 7 64bit Premium OS
Windows Vista 64bit Ultimate OS

    Forgot to add RAM is crucial Ballistix DDR3 8GB 1333MHz/PC3-10600
  2. There is no such thing as fragmentation on a SSD like there is on a traditional hard drive.

    I'd RMA the drive as it seems bust!
  3. As I thought, will pop an RMA through thanks for the reply
  4. Did you format you SDD woth FAT32 ?
