Welcome to the forum. This is a notebook drive right? Goggling the Model number might get the name brand of the drive. Then reflash using correct firmware might fix it…but be prepared to purchase a new drive if it doesn’t. Flashing drives can be risky and will void all warranties too. Good Luck

Yes its a notebook drive, sorry. How do i find the firmware to flash it? I have checked Acer’s website and they dont have it. Thanks.

Anyone have this firmware, thanks.

I have issues with this drive model too. My firmware revision is CX12 and I have been trying to find an update for months. If anyone has a CX firmware, please let me now.
