Hello!

Im about to install an P222 controller to my MS Gen8. The controller has 512mb cache memory, but I wonder if the flash cache function still works without the battery?

Best Regards Soft-IO

If I remember correctly the card should work without the capacitor. I believe it will disable write caching and give you error messages.

Soft-IO, do You try to use p222 without battery?

 

I'm interested because have p222/512MB and issue with it: error 1783 when cache module with capacitor pack is installed, but is initialized when module is removed (with error, and in unsupported configuration).

 

I tried to upgrade controller ROM to latest v8 (without cache module), update is completed, but this is doesn't help. When module with capacitor is installed its status LEDs LED1(amber) and LED2 (green) is continuously blink. According to manual this is disconnected capacitor (Voltage on disconnected capacitor, is about 4.65V).
