Sandforce 2200 series bug fix finally available

/ 5 years ago

The new Sandforce 2200 controllers have been prone to a bug problem which lead to disconnecting and BSODs but now OCZ think they have come up with a bug fix fit for release. The fix is for SSD firmware and will take them to version 2.15 for OCZ drives and 3.3.2 for drives that use SandForce’s standard numbering system.

OCZ made this official statement:

OCZ is pleased to announce that the cause of a BSOD issue experienced by some SF-2000-based drive owners has been identified by OCZ and SandForce. A new firmware update which directly addresses this BSOD occurrence related to SF-2000 based SSDs is available here. All newly manufactured OCZ SF-2000 based SSDs will feature the new 2.15 firmware revision (which is based on SandForce firmware version 3.3.2.) We highly recommend that any customers that have experienced the BSOD issue update their firmware to 2.15.

We sincerely appreciate the support from our customers, and if any customers have any questions or require additional support please do not hesitate to contact a customer service representative and we will be happy to address any questions or concerns.

It is important to note as with any firmware update that you should back up all of your data as problems can occur with firmware flashing and also although it has been thoroughly tested it is still possible new issues may arise from this update.
