Re: Error 18 with firmware update

Was hoping that SanDisk would respond to the comments in prior post....

Are you listening to us end users, or ??????

Re: Error 18 with firmware update

Currently our firmware update feature only works under AHCI or RAID, I think that is the reason you are seeing code 18

Hopefully you will address this in the near future..... As this will alenate a lot of people with older laptops who are looking to breathe life into them with this update!

Re: Error 18 with firmware update

Just want SanDisk folks to know that in  2 weeks I've updated 2 laptops without AHCI Interfaces!!! 

And one with AHCI interface....

 

Please work on update so that Dashboard supports legacy controllers..... (for future firmware updates!)

Thank You...

Re: Error 18 with firmware update

I have tried to update my firmware using both AHCI and RAID but i still get error 18.

 

I've tried to use the boot from CD Live Image feature and this also failed.

 

I even booted my old cloned drive and try to flash the SSD but still wont work.

 

Is there any news on a fix for this?
