    Default RCP-IV-S2556-C in MacBook Pro, not reliable

    I ordered a RCP-IV-SA2556-C for my MacBook Pro. I was shipped a RCP-IV-S2556-C. I do IT work, so it was not a large problem to reformat the drive, and grab Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my existing HD. Looking here, I noted that there was new firmware available. Since I switched over to using the SSD as my internal drive (a week ago), I have occasionally had problems (once or twice a day) where the app I was in would lock up, and I'd find that *all* apps had locked up. The only option was to do a hard reboot. Suspecting that this was due to running on the old firmware, I took the drive out and had a co-worker use their desktop PC to update the firmware to 1916. Sadly, this had NOT fixed my problem. In fact, it might be worse now (I had one instance where I could not boot my computer, and another where it locked up within several minutes of booting). The new firmware (according to Xbench) *has* improved the already quite good performance of the drive (when its working).

    Any advice? Do I RMA the SSD? If it matters, my drive is PN 05035600 (Samsung M die 16 piece). Thanks a whole bunch in advance!!

    HI:
    You can contact the support@runcore.com. directly.I believe you will get the other way for your fw update and try again for your SSD reliable.

    Hi,

    make sure, your drive is really on FW1916. Reformat your drive again using Mac OS Extended Journaled and install Mac OS X 10.6.x (clean install). Turn journaling off using Disk Utility (click on partition - not whole disk - press "alt" (option) key and while holding "alt" key click on "file" in menu bar. Disable Journaling will appear. It should help. Sorry for my english.

    Unhappy Re: RCP-IV-S2556-C in MacBook Pro, not reliable

    I tried support@runcore.com. They had me do a re-initialization of the drive. But since it still exhibits the same behavior, I will need to RMA it. :-( I'm wondering if I should be trying out another identical drive, or if I should try and get a refund to then go with another device??
