We are very happy to release the new firmware 2142 which covers ULTRA drive GX/GX2. The old firmware 2030 has some serious problem at flushing so that it wears out your SSD very quickly. Please download the firmware as soon as possible. All tools will be same: SMART viewer,ID checker, Erase tool, ...
Some of latest mobo has SATA III port (SATA 6G). MP TOOL and ISO file updater will not work on those SATA III port. Please use SATA II port only.

AMD / NVIDIA chipset users
I verified one of AMD chipset with ASUS M4A785TD-V EDO mother board.
It has AM3 socket and 785G north bridge chipset and SB710 south bridge
Most AMD chipset users have some problem - why? mostly due to IDE/AHCI issue. Set it to IDE mode PLEASE.
I verified MP TOOL is working and UPDATER is working. Our customer verified SB850 and SB950 too.
I also verified the same thing with EVGA 132-CK-NF79-A1 board.
MP TOOL is working and Updater build and Updater is working.
I also did some experiment on ASUS STRIKER II EXTREME board, which uses NVIDIA chipset. The south bridge chipset per CPU-z is 570. (It is too old?) I verified MP TOOL is working per guide. But Updater is not working.
DO NOT DISCONNECT THE SSD WHILE PC IS ON.
