Kingston 3k 503 firmware update missing

Hello,
I've seen to run into a wall...

One of my Kingston SSD's is experiencing a problem where the drive will just disappear.

I've done plenty of research and seems to be due to my firmware which is currently the sandforce 501.

I have just now been able to have the Kingston software recognize my SSD (super long story) but finally got them recognized only to find that Kingston has actually removed the update for the 3k SSD's.

I've searched multiple forums that even had links to the update but as u can figure the link is now broken and/or it takes me to the same page telling me there is no update.

This confuses and angers me as people have fixed this issue with the update but now it is no longer available. So wondering if someone happens to have the file or help me find it?

Thanks, Brian

Yes i see that. and thought same thing as well.

But as you can see in this post here on Toms.. there was an update. some people got it to work some people didn't. but even here they said it was removed from the website like i stated in my post...

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/293508-32-help-kingst...

So I'm looking for someone that may happen to still have a copy of that file although i know it's not supported by kingston any longer...

As seen here as well it was released but failed for this user.. just want to give it a shot is all.

Also a post from another site. this user was successful and fixed the known issues of the 501 firmware.
