I have 256GB Intel SSD 2500 Pro series disk. It worked great on Linux Ubuntu. Now it stopped to work. Now it is detected as follows:

[69214.467957] scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access     SandForc e{200026BB}           PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

[69214.537252] sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI disk

Is it a disk or firmware failure ? Should I try to update the disk firmware ?

Update 1: I tried to update firmware by using Intel Firmware Update Tool but the tool does not recognize the disk (in this state) as an Intel SSD.

    I had a similar issue years back with a samsung drive. I sent it in to samsung for repair and flashing firmware is what they listed as the fix. Could be worth a try.
