How do I find firmware version using Ubuntu?

I just purchased a 320-series SSD. I installed it in a Thinkpad with Ubuntu Linux as the operating system. How do I discover what firmware version is installed?

Hi,

Open a terminal window and issue:

hdparm -I /dev/x

where x is your drive. If you're not sure of your drive label, use something like GParted (included in most Ubuntu releases afaik) to determine it.

This will print out a substantial amount of information about the device and you should see a line detailing the firmware revision.

Thanks.

just to make sure: that is a -I (as in captial of "i" correct?) Or is it a lowercase "L"
