Is there a M500 firmware update?

I am getting two M500's delivered today and before I put any data on them I want to update the firmware, if there is an update.

 

I did not see an update listed in the firmware update thread at the top of this forum, but I want to double check to make sure that there is not a M500 update at this time.

 

Would someone please be so kind as to post a "no there is not" or a "yes and here is the link".

 

Thanks!

Oforfs,

 

Still no firmware upgrades released :smileyhappy: In most cases when you purchase the M500 it will come with the latest firmware. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Hi

 

One of my customer has bought 6 * M500 and created a raid 10 via LSI 9261-8i.

He is complaining about activity LED as they are off.

We had this issue before with Samsung SSD and they advised us to update SSD FW to a version that enabled activity LED.

Do you have any firmware for this issue?

That's strange the LED definately works on the M500 - I just tried it.

There are no firmware updates for it - only the one it ships with.

Hello,

 

I bought a M500 (CT240M500SSD1) to use it in a Dell Latitude 6320.

 

The SSD is working fine but it is not found from the Wave software.

 

On the Wave page I found following information:

 

M500 (Micron and Crucial) : Wave Systems Corp. has identified an issue that can cause an incompatibility between specific systems running Wave software and the Micron M500 or Crucial M500 SSD. On affected systems, this could result in failure to initialize the drive.  Via correspondence from Micron, a firmware fix will be provided soon and will be available at the URLs below. Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.

Micron M500 firmware: http://www.micron.com/ssdfirmware

Crucial M500 firmware: http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx

 

Both links don´t help me.

 

Following the Windows hardware ID "MU02" firmware is installed.

 

Is this the actual one?

What could I do to use data encryption?

 

Thanks

MU02 is the base firmware the drive ships with.  If there's an update coming it isn't out yet.  And Crucial don't tend to pre-anounce the firmwares so you've actually just given us more information about it than I've seen around here before! :smileyhappy:

So, have you tried it with a LSI raid controller.

maybe it is an incompatibility issue. I could not find your company name in their Compatibility Matrix:
