Intel Confirms Firmware Bug in 320-Series SSDs
Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 07/14/2011 09:39 AM | 0 comment(s) ]
Intel has now confirmed that it is aware of the firmware issue that affects their 320-series solid state drives and promised to release an update regarding this problem once more information is available.
A couple of weeks ago some 320-series SSD end users reported that power failures caused their drives to drop in capacity to just 8MB and lose all the data that was stored on them. These problems appear to be triggered by the fact that, after a power loss, the SSD tries to reconnect with the SATA port instead of starting a proper shutdown.
After a fair number of customers complained about this issue on Intel's official support forums, a company employee, that works for the Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group, responded in a post:
