I buy'd a SanDisk SanDisk Ultra II 960GB
Ist this firmware the latest?
How could I update the firmware on a mac?
I run Windows only in VMware Fusion and have installed Crossover (Wine) too.
My Mac: MBP late 2008 15" / macOS El Capitan

Its nice that no one ever replies to these requests. So frustrating. I need to update mine as well. A few hundred of them to run them in camera systems for a production I am working on. NO help at all.

SanDisk support seems frustrating.
But I use my SanDisk SSD in my MacBookPro now about 1500 hours without problems.
I hat TRIM turned on too.
I use DriveDX, to monitor the S.M.A.R.T. status too.

Yup, I'm in this boat too.
Can't even find a way to work out what the latest firmware is for my drive without having to use a completly different operating system.
Oh and where can I find manual firmware updates for drives.

Now my SanDisk Ultra II SSD 960 GB works well about 4.900 hours - an with firmware X41100R.
The only thing that bothers me is that no one from SanDisk is coming up on the subject!

I can't help with firmware updates, but I can tell you there are TWO different hardware versions of the 960 Drives, and each version has a different firmware!
How I ran into this.... I was building a Raid 0 array for data storage, and the 2 Ultra II 960's I bought were 2 different units, with different firmwares!!!
That prevented me from using them, as I wanted IDENTICAL DRIVES for Raid 0 use...
I bitched and moaned here until Sandisk told me they would do a ONE TIME Swap, and the told me which SSD they wanted me to send back, and they then sent another so I would have two identical hardware and firmware for both Raid 0 SSD's...
BUT.... SanDisk said It was a ONE TIME Exchange!
I asked if they would identify firmware or hardware revision on the Boxes, so I could Pre Determine which to buy in the future........
And They Said: NO.
As Good as Sandisk Ultra II's have been, I have not bought any more for Raid Use.... And because of that they lost out on nearly 20 purchases.... since 2017...
