Synopsis: Download the latest firmware updates and step-by-step upgrade tutorials for MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 2 mSATA and M.2 NGFF solid state drives featuring the S9 controller in this very post! (Updated with FW Ver. 1.7 on 8/11/14)

To better assist our customers, the My Digital Discount Tech Support team has created new step-by-step tutorials to walk MyDigitalSSD owners through upgrading the firmware in Super Cache 2 (SC2) 50mm mSATA and 42mm M.2 NGFF solid state drives that feature the S9 controller.

The updates found at the bottom of this post serve two purposes:

  1. To upgrade the firmware of an existing drive
  2. To over provision while upgrading the firmware of a drive

If you have an Super Cache 2 SSD running at full capacity and plan to keep it that way, DO NOT run the Over-Provisioning version of this update. Doing so will over provision the drive and there is no going back.

With that said, MyDigitalSSD HIGHLY recommends users to over provision Super Cache 2 SSDs when using them as system drives for maximum drive performance and longevity.

WARNING: Please check your firmware version before downloading and installing any firmware update. If you have a numerical version of similar or higher value to the latest update, you will not need to upgrade.

If you do not know how to check your firmware version. View our quick and simple tutorial on "How to check your SSD firmware version" (PDF, 442KB).

The soft of ISO to USB didn't work with my U disk. So I use another way to ran to winpe system. Then I open the S9FM01.6.EXE, and chose the over-provisioning with my SC2. It began to not respond. After a long time, it remind me wrong fw name. So I end the process and the SC2 disk can't be seen. I open S9FM01.6.EXE again. Find that
the name changed to PS3109S9.
Current FW version: 8GRBOOT
Device Capacity:0 GB
Firmware is not up to date
Oh my god. How should I do to recover the SC2?
