Can't Update Intel 330 60GB to firmware 330i

I have an Intel SSD 330 60GB and Intel SSD Drive Toolbox 3.1.0 installed. In the Drive Summary it lists my firmware as 300i. When I check for new firmware updates it lists firmware version 330i as the latest but I can't download it. The Update button is greyed out in Firmware Update.

 

Do I have the latest firmware or is there a typo on the intel page?

Same here for my SSD 330 120GB.

Anybody from Intel please?

I have the 180gb SSD 330, just launched the SSD toolbox and found the same thing. I followed instructions to upgrade the toolbox app to 3.1.0, but the firmware update option is still greyed out.

What's up with that Intel?

Same problem here, Intel SSD 330, 180Gb FW 300i wouldnt update to 330i with the Intel SSD Toolbox, nor the update bootable CD - this thing just doest not see any Intel SSD installed. I tried IDE Compatibility mode - it just decides faster that it doesnt see the SSD.

Lets just wait till Monday...

I'm having the same firmware update issue and also the same problem as Alek.

I have two 330 SSDs, a 120G and a 180G. Both came with 300i firmware and neither can be updated with toolbox 3.1 to 330i.

The 180G drive just failed, too. On Saturday 10/27 I upgraded the notebook with the 180G from Win7 to Win8. While still in the process of setting up the new O/S I got one message that no bootable device was found when restarting. I repaired it using the Win8 installation disc. On Sunday 10/28 I got the message again, but now the Win8 repair utility can't fix it and the drive can't be seen either in the notebook or in an external USB case on another notebook.

after the release of 3.1.1 Toolbox, we see that 300i is still the latest firmware

so, there is no need to upgrade the firmware on our drives, or what?

I guess it was a typo since the intel site says 300i is now the latest version? Whatever, that works for me.

The Detailed Description of the the Download Center record for Toolbox 3.1 incorrectly identified the firmware version for the 330 Series and the 335 Series. Toolbox version 3.1.1 has been released correcting those errors. In the case of the 330, firmware version 330i is current and hence, there is no update available for it.

Please note; the list of firmware versions identify the current version of the firmware. In many cases, the current version is the production version so there is not an update available.

Toolbox 3.1.1 is available at; http://www.intel.com/go/ssdtoolbox http://www.intel.com/go/ssdtoolbox.

Sorry for the confusion.

Trying to straighten out this confusion you're making it worse?

"Toolbox version 3.1.1 has been released correcting those errors. In the case of the 330, firmware version 330i is current and hence, there is no update available for it."

You're saying that 330i is the current version? Or this is just another typo?

All,

I am very sorry for the mistake.

What is on the download page is correct. I misstated in my reply.

330 Series current firmware is 300i

335 Series firmware is 335s
