Inland 240gb ssd failure


I have a Mac Pro 5,1 and used this drive as the main for a few years now running Catalina. Yesterday I woke up and the drive is no

longer accessible and shows up as SATAFIRM S11 in disk utility. I found out this is related to the firmware rewriting and now the data

is difficult to recover. Thankfully I did a back up of files somewhat recently, but stupidly I did lose some critical data from of a lack of diligence.

I read that this is a common issue with Kingston drives and there is a utility that can fix it in some cases.

Is there a way to flash the firmware on these drives? Thank you for any help!
