Regretfully it sounds like your drive has died. What you've experienced is an extremely rare defect but we will be happy to get you a replacement drive right away.

Simply contact our support team at orders@mydigitaldiscount.com and they will assist you in setting up an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).

*MyDigital SSD is no longer being recognized on my X220.*

When I first installed the MyDigital 128GB mSata SSD, it installed and worked like a charm (Yesterday - 3/18/2011). I installed Windows 7 on it and it was working great. However, the computer then went into hibernate and when it woke up, it reverted to my HDD and after that point I haven't been able to boot back into the SSD.

Other symptoms:
* At first, the computer showed the drive properly as an SSD drive, however, now BIOS and everything else simply show it as PS3016S5.
* Windows disk management utility show only 2MB on the disk.

What I've tried so far:
* Opened the laptop back up to make sure the drive is still connected properly.
* Tried installing Firmware update S5FAM012, but running the command with /SCANPORT simply said it could not find any valid SATA drive.
* Tried installing firmware S5FAM015, but the UI keeps showing me the error message: "Not Running on Flash Normal Code now!! - FBO"

Please help!

Better to have Win firmware utility update.
Wait for 14 firmware.
