Hey jay, sorry to ear that. Wiper is your friend. Then re flash. if it does not work,

do your inquiry on the OCZ website forum, they are good and answer fast. They also have a good user group.

In the issue of a RMA, I'll be happy to do it for you :) Also, why did you go back to 1.10 ?

Hum, I was sure I did upgrade it to 1.4... anyway, you should go to 1.4 (follow the guide on ocz forum) you get the garbage disposal (xp, vista) or tim (w7) benefits.

found my way :)
TBH im saying 1.10 cause hdtune shows that..i better dbl check in bios but im sure bios shows 1.10 also.

Edit: checked the bios and its FW 1370 aka.1.10......drive probably just needs cleaning...this is my 3rd install on it already

or the bios update i did maybe?

Just to clear it, try to reinstall the driver for the sata controller... Also, to go to 1.4 you will have to update to 1.3 before and it will wipe the drive at the same time.

upgrade to the latest firmware and run wiper.exe, you'll get over 200mb/s
