We have 240GB,Intel 535 Series SSD.We installed Windows 7 professional 64-bit on it and it is working fine.But when we run burn in test (read/write in cyclic pattern) it shows "Error while reading from the disk".
So we want to know,what could be the reason for that? Do we need to install any drivers for SSD?
Our system configuration is:
CPU Type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v3 @ 3.20GHz X 2 //Dual CPUs
Motherboard Name: X10DAI
Motherboard Version: 1.01
Total Physical Memory: 65411MB Kingston RAM
BIOS Manufacturer: American Megatrends Inc
SSD: INTEL SSDSC2BW240H6 , 240GB, Intel 535 Series
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
Please help to solve our problem.
Thanks in advance!
The Intel® Solid State Drive 335 Series does not utilize drivers. You can check if your SSD is running the latest firmware by using this tool: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18363/Intel-SSD-Firmware-Update-Tool Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool - As for the reads and writes, we were wondering if you could try this tool: http://www.iometer.org/doc/downloads.html IOMeter*
According to the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-specifications/ssd-535-spec.pdf Intel® Solid State Drive 335 Series - Product Specification the sustained sequential read is up to 540MB/s and for the sustained sequential write is up to 490MB/s

We have checked the firmware on SSD,It is the latest one.
We tried with second SSD,that also got same error but after running long time(around 70+ Hrs) and it is not frequent only one time it was,while previous SSD was giving all the time after start(after around 2 Hrs) of run.
From Intel SSD drive toolbox,first SSD was having many bad sectors,while in second, it shows good.
