Re: TRIM firmware for the 128 GB Samsung SSD??

Have you tried Blue_Frog's instructions on page 15? To boot up without SSD, only with USB stick, then hotplug SSD and run maindiag?

Hey everyone!

 

I tried to flash my ssd but I got stuck.

This is what worked so far:

 

1) I created the bootable usb stick

2) I changed SATA mode to IDE Mode

3) Booted from the usb stick while the ssd was attached

4) run maindiag and it recognized my ssd

5) I unplugged the ssd and booted again

6) After booting from the usb stick and when I go C:\ I hot plugged in my ssd

7) Now I run maindiag again but it didn't recognize my ssd at all.

 

It reacts the same way when I run maindiag without any drivers connected. When I press 2 it just tells me " Check ATA Interface" and after a few seconds "Device not ready"

I already tried it with my PC as well as with a laptop. Both have the same result.

I also tried to first connect a different disk and then switch to the ssd but when I run maindiag after hot plugging it in, both don't get recognized. However, if I plug them in before booting from the usb stick, they get recognized.

 

I will try a different computer tomorrow but I am running out of ideas. Can anyone help me?

Thanks!!

Update: I tried a 3rd PC and it still only recognized the ssd while it booted with it plugged in but not when I hot swapped it.

I also tried a totally different ssd and I get the same result. I even created a new usb stick to boot from.

 

My finally conclusion is that its not the ssd, the computer, nor the usb stick. My assumption is that I am doing something wrong but I dont know what. 

 

:-/

 

Edit: I have seen Blue_Frogs instructions on page 15 but I am afraid to try it out. I fear that since my ssd doesnt get recognized when I hot plug it in that I will make it useless and not be able to go further than step 7 in his instructions.

Re: TRIM firmware for the 128 GB Samsung SSD??

I appreciate your offer but I decided to just put it in without the new firmware. I use the ssd as my root partition and can't afford to take it out at the moment. I might give it a new try sometime later and if I will be stuck I will pm you if that is alright with you :smileyhappy:

Re: TRIM firmware for the 128 GB Samsung SSD??

Just for reference, no guarantee whether or not it works, but here's my experience:

 

- First I set the BIOS to IDE/Legacy

- Then I booted from the USB drive without the SDD in

- Then I inserted the SSD and stated Maindiag

- I was then able to run option 2 clear current firmware

- After that, I tried running option 1 replace current firmware. It failed

- Wthout rebooting I took out the SSD and inserted it again

- I tried option 1 again and now it did work, the firmware was replaced succesfully

- Then option 4 failed. Same solution. Unplug SSD without rebooting, put it back in and now it did work.

 

This was done yesterday on a T400s with the Lenove Samsung 128Gb SSD. Performance in W7 went from 5.9 to 7.6, and TRIM was enabled

Does this firmware VBM19C1Q work on the "ova" drive MMCQE28G8MUP-0VAL1 , or is it only for OVB series

 

Is there any TRIM capable firmware for MMCQE28G8MUP-0VAL1.
