Crucial m4に致命的な不具合が発見

2012年1月15日 オフ 投稿者: ぱる☆ミ

CrucialのSSD(m4)にて、現行ファームの全てに不具合が見つかったようです

不具合の内容は

m4の電源投入時間が累積5184時間を超えると、無反応になる

という致命的な不具合です。

ベンダーもファームウェアのアップデートを「 STRONGLY RECOMMENDED」と言っているので

速やかに対策版のファームを適用した方が良いでしょう

ファームのアップデートはこちらの記事に書いてあるのでご参考まで

以下、ベンダのリリースノート原文の引用です ( http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx

Release Date: 01/13/2012
Change Log:

  • Changes made in version 0002 (m4 can be updated to revision 0309 directly from either revision 0001, 0002, or 0009)
  • Correct a condition where an incorrect response to a SMART counter will cause the m4 drive to become unresponsive after 5184 hours of Power-on time. The drive will recover after a power cycle, however, this failure will repeat once per hour after reaching this point. The condition will allow the end user to successfully update firmware, and poses no risk to user or system data stored on the drive.

This firmware update is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for drives in the field. Although the failure mode due to the SMART Power On Hours counter poses no risk to saved user data, the failure mode can become repetitive, and pose a nuisance to the end user. If the end user has not yet observed this failure mode, this update is required to prevent it from happening.

If you are using a SAS Expander please do not download this Firmware. As soon as we have a Firmware Update that will work in these applications we will release it.
