Default Intel releases firmware fix their second generation 34nm SSDs

The first batch of Intel's 34-nm SSDs suffer from a firmware bug. Most users probably wouldn't notice, unless they happened to set a BIOS drive password then either change or disable that password. Doing so renders the contents of the drive inaccessible, at least with the stock firmware. Intel has publicly released a new firmware revision that fixes a data corruption issue with its second-generation, 34-nm solid-state drives.

You can grab the firmware update tool right at Intel's Download Center. To update an existing drive, Intel says you'll need to burn the updater ISO image to a CD-R (InfraRecorder and ImgBurn should help with that), then boot off the disc and run the updater from there.
