Experiments were carried out to account for the metastable vortex lattice. It was observed that this lattice undergo two types of current driven transitions. Below the peak effect region, a current driven equilibration transition from a metastable disordered state to a stable ordered one was observed. In the peak effect region, both the equilibration and the KV transitions were detected.
