    Default New FW1916 available for DL and Bug Fix Report By Model

    Ok everyone here is the latest FW that fixes many of the existing issues with the previous FW releases.

    Support | RunCore

    It is at the bottom of the page.

    I would also like people to update us and everyone interested if your bug has been fixed via this tread.

    #1 Computer Model
    #2 Runcore Drive Part # and Serial # if accessible
    #3 Describe Bug
    #4 Does the new FW fix the bug

    #3 Describe Bug
    Slow wiper.exe under 1819

    #4 Does the new FW fix the bug
    wiper.exe is fast again like under 1571 (though fw 1916's GC means I shouldn't need to run it)

    #5 What FW did you upgrade from
    1819

    #6 Any new bugs or observations to report
    Prelim testing shows fastest write performance I've ever seen, eg: crystaldiskmark result

    #Comment
    EASY firmware update, just boot USB, run firmware update program which takes 2 seconds to complete, done. No need to backup data. Much easier than the 1819 update I posted here. In the 20mins of testing, so far fw 1916 has provided very impressive performance and GC/trim + bugfixes features. Thank you Matt for posting this ::

    Thats very nice, matt, but my unit is on it's way back to China, seems it has/had major issues, but nvm....

    Why do you ask for 'Computer Model?

    If the drives are truly IDE or SATA compatible, they should be able to be plugged into ANY computer, even a godforsaken mac...

    The very purpose of standards and open architecture is that there is a connection standard, if ANY manufacturer wants to make a part or parts, then they MUST comply with the standard interface design, which in the case of HDD's means they must have the standard IDE or SATA compatibility, even if Form Factor adapters are needed.

    I happen to be wanting to use my Pro IV as the boot drive in a self built (Non-branded) desktop system, I'm not stupid enuf to buy a Dell...

    If things worked like that then there'd be no such thing as bugs and incompatibilities, no need for a Qualified Vendor List for compatible RAM, no problems ever with FW flashing etc etc. Because a PC is a constantly evolving piece of equipment, not only does it have to function using new hardware standards, it also has to maintain a certain amount of backward compatibility with legacy hardware. For example, the reason why some Indilinx drives have a jumper on the back is to force the drive to lie to the motherboard controller about its capacity. Some ICH/BIOS combinations (older ones) will have trouble passing through flashing data if the drive is more than 137Gb in size. This isn't the manufacturers fault, it's our fault for demanding new shiny tech that is also compatible with our obsolete stuff like floppy drives, IDE DVD/CD drives, older SATA drives that only support SATA 150MB/s, HDD's that have SATA plugs at the back but underneath are IDE drives with a bridge chip etc etc.

    There are so many different motherboards in use in machines all of which have various SouthBridge chipsets, including 5 major revisions of Intel's ICHxx not to mention the R versions too. There are also a few veriations on AMD's SBxxx chipset.

    Computer manufacturer is more relevant when referring to laptops. What a desktop user should be concerned with is NB Chipset and Southbridge revision.

    A Mac will have a custom BIOS that again, is a different thing entirely compared to a PC BIOS, even though they both use the same Intel Hardware. Again, not Runcore's fault or Apples, but our fault for allowing two seperate personal computer standards to exist side by side, one being virtually identical to a PC, just with a couple hundred /$ slapped on to the price and a misconception that one is better for audio/video/photo work.

    Before you go labeling folks stupid, you want want to consider a little word called "CONTEXT"

    For instance, my context is that I work for a company with a corporate purchasing agreement with Dell, and I didn't either have a choice in the matter or pay one cent out of my pocket for my Dell.

    Do us all a favor and stick to the issues...

    Hot damn that is super fast now. If I am not mistaken it looks like a 30% gain in sustained and random write. I bet that computer is flat out instant.

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Sorry about the Dell guys I know many people have that computer and really want the upgrade. I will see if the engineers in China can figure this one out ASAP. Anyone want to donate their XT for around 2 weeks? As long as we can get it working I would offer a free 32GB drive for it.
