    I'm running A-Data S599 SSD on my Apple Mac Pro running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate in Apple BootCamp.

    The flasher is updating the drive ok, but when it finish I got BSOD. After rebooting the system I got the same firmware.

    My current version is: 3.4.3 and I'm updating to 3.6.5.

    How to perform the update on a Mac ?

    Most of the flashing utilities I have encountered require you to not be booted to the drive.

    I've booted from 32 GB A-data SSD and I'm flashing 40 GB A-data SSD.

    Not working when using standard AHCI driver too :/

    When booting Windows from this SSD the firmware is being flashed ok, then reboots ok but remains the same.

    When booting Windows from the other SSD I got a message "Download firmware failed".

    How to fix this ?
