pyther Posted November 27, 2010 Share Posted November 27, 2010 Hello. I am the proud owner of a F60. I am loving it. An official firmware updater that is not OS dependent would be great. With that aside, there is an improvement that should be made to the updater, making life easier for non-Window users. I tried running the firmware updater on my drive and it failed to detect the drive. 60GB Force GPT Partition Table1 - 250MB ext22 - 55GB ext4 The installer failed to detect the drive, BUT windows detected the drive with two unknown partitions (expected). Long story short, I formatted the drive with a MBR partition table and created a 10GB ntfs partition. The fw updater then detected the drive and updated the firmware without a problem. It would be greatly appreciated if the installer would work/detect the drive as long as windows sees the drive. I don't understand why the Partition Table or file formats should matter for a FW upgrade. If I am missing something please let me know. Now from reading some posts and doing a bit of research the fw utility seems to be a product of sandforce. Therefore, I am hoping this thread creates awareness and maybe someone from Corsair can talk to the right people to modify the installer to allow the installer to work regardless of the type of data on the drive. To summarize: I am not asking for a LINUX/Mac/Dos installer (although it would be nice)Modify the installer to "detect" the drive regardless of data on the drive Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
