We'd first need to know what make/model SSD you're upgrading and whether older Firmware versions installed successfully.

Please send that information along with any further information possible to info@mydigitaldiscount.com and we'll try to help you troubleshoot the issue.


Original post translation:

"I tried to install the firmware S5FAM030 but when I run the command to perform the SHIFT, I get stuck for hours with the message Code PRAM ISP Prog ...

The hard drive access LED remains lit.
It is far from 60 seconds ... What is happening?
Thank you."

J'ai essayé d'installer le firmware S5FAM030 mais lorsque je lance la commande pour effectuer la MAJ, je reste bloqué pendant des heures avec le message ISP Prog PRAM Code...

La led d'accès disque dur reste allumée.
On est loin des 60 secondes... Que se passe t'il ?

Ray - Yes, this FW update is compatible with your drive.

Cebas - Regretfully, we do not have release notes on the 030 update.
As a rule, Phison generally doesn't provide us with release notes with their firmware updates nor do they publish them to our knowledge.

Genghis99 - Glad we could help!

thx from germany for your outstanding service. FAM30 turned my verbatim to a useful piece of hardware.
Cebas Friday, October 5, 2012 12:15:23 PM
Where can I get the release notes for the 030 firmware update? I guess from this post, there are performance gains, but I want to know all the changes.

I've got a Verbatim SSD and the Controller is a Phison however the chip says PS3105-S5-1, the tutorial says controller Phison S5 and the image doesn't show S5-1, is it still ok to proceed?
