    Long time lurker however I have an issue I haven't been able to find a solution for. Bit of a long shot but here goes... Trying to install a PCI IOFX 420GB SSD card and hit a roadblock.

    Updated to latest version of VSL driver and IOFX firmware I could find and they just don't talk.

    In cmd line I get an error saying the firmware needs to be updated but I can't find anything newer.

    Any ideas?

    SOLVED! Thanks go to @Aquacow for bearing with me whilst I worked through this issue.

    The solution is to use --bypass-uptodate when trying to update to an older version of firmware. Using -f would not work as it was already updated to a newer version of firmware.

    The cmd line looks like this when it works:


    C:\Program Files\Fusion-io\Firmware>fio-update-iodrive --bypass-uptodate fusion_3.2.11-20150618.fff

    WARNING: DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR RUN ANY IODRIVE UTILITIES WHILE THE FIRMWARE UPDATE IS IN PROGRESS
    Please wait...this could take a while
