Solved Intel 320 SSD firmware update is out Tags: SSD Firmware Intel Storage Last response: August 30, 2011 6:39 PM in Storage Share Proximon August 18, 2011 1:16:53 AM Intel has posted the firmware update for the Intel 320 series of SSDs. This resolves, apparently, a serious error that occurs sometimes when power is unexpectedly lost. (For instance an outage or a hard reboot.) BE FULLY BACKED UP FIRST. Better yet, clone the drive if you can.

Except that a number of people have said that they got the 8MB failure after installing this firmware... in some cases apparently without any kind of unusual shutdown.
