Patriot Torqx TRB 64GB FW update
long story short.
My SSD disk is Patriot Torqx TRB 64GB. I'm on FW 100730.
I have tried to update the FW to 110322 and now it starts.
If I followed this instructions
I get this error message:
If I set the HDD in BIOS as AHCI (which is wrong according to the manual) I got this message:
(usb pen drive is FAT32, I have formatted it twice, SSD drive is NTFS, I have also formatted the drive, to be sure)
I search the forum all over, the most useful for my problem seems to be this one:
But I wasn't that lucky as the thread starter.
I tried it on 3 different MOBO's (H67N second gen. iCore, H55N - first gen. iCore and P45 UD3P - C2D chipset - all Gigabyte models) with the same result (as described earlier).
And yes, I tried all possible options (legacy and native) with no result.
Actually a FW upgrade should be very easy, so a lot of frustration for me.
Could someone help me out?
I've pinged our Engineers to see if they have any insight to the matter. Thank you for your patience.
If all else fails, what we could do is having our Engineers attempt to flash your drive for you under warranty.
I will wait, thanks
Our Engineers attempted to flash 2 x 64GB TRB drives on an Asus P7H55 and we were not able to replicate this issue.
Here are some important tips/notes:
1. USB drive: Try a fresh format before running the JMISP616.exe software
2. BIOS SATA set as IDE mode not AHCI
3. Please double check that the firmware upgrade version is 100730 only. You can check using HDTune
http://majorgeeks.com/HD_Tune_d4130.html If the firmware is not 100730, it will not work.
thanks for your answer, but still no joy.
You can see FW version of the SSD here:
I have downloaded the FW updater again just to be sure and formatted the pen drive again before installing. I used an Asus board this time, but still the same error.

Are you experiencing any major issues with your drive? At this point, the only thing we would suggest doing would be to send the drive in under warranty and our Engineers can flash the drive for you. Please advise if you want to go this route and I can PM you the information to set this up.
I see your point "If it works, just let it go" the golden rule with any HW.
OK, my main reason to update the FW, was support of Garbage Collection (if I understood it right), so please correct me if I'm wrong.

All of our SSD's actually support Garbage Collection. You can let this activate by simply letting your system idle overnight.
ok than, thanks for your support
