I am trying to update the firmware of a sandisk extreme ssd (240gb) just purchased from a store I put the drive in an external enclosure, connected it to the laptop via usb. The computer (win7) detected the drive and said its ready. I started the sandisk software but it failed to recognize the drive. Any idea why?
are you talking about the Linux kernal used for FW update tool? if so i do not think it will work in USB enclosures. IIRC it has to be connected internally via SATA.
