I got Bad_CTX after flashing the new firmware 4PC10362. what can I do?

I just bought the brand new intel 320 SSD 120G last week. It worked well before I flashed its firmware to 4PC10362. Just two days after I flashed it, I got the Bad_CTX error. So what can I do? I am in Australia. Don't tell me to return it to USA intel!

SongV,

See this forum thread: /thread/24634?tstart=0 http://communities.intel.com/thread/24634?tstart=0

1. After you are hit by the "8MB bug" your data is not recoverable from the SSD!

2. First do a Secure Erase on your SSD, to restore the ssd to its factory state.

3. After a succesfull Secure Erase your ssd should be usable again.

If this does not work, you have to RMA the ssd to your vendor-dealer or Intel for a replacement.

Thank you for your help. The HDDErase 3.3 & 4.0 don't work on my sony laptop. Do you know any other tools like that? Thanks again.

Could you use the Intel SSD Toolbox?

Thank you for your reply.

The SSD is not bootable( just 8M capacity). So I can't use the Intel SSD Toolbox with the SSD on my laptop.
