I have a macbook pro 13" mid 2009 2,26GHz with HDD 160gb. I recently replaced my optical drive with a crucial SSD 240GB and it works really good and it was quite an easy process. Now i am trying to do the same to a friends Macbook pro 13" mid 2010 with a crucial MX200 SSD 500gb, only now it is not recognisable at all by the MBP.
- both sata drives on MBP 2010 are on 3gb/s speeds while the ssd is 6gb/s!
- Both macbook run el capitan
I tried disk utilities , i tried restarting with cmd + R and again is not there. I also replaced my friends sata cable with mine (which works fine) and still nothing. I am looking to several articles over the net and the most hopeful case is to replace the sata cable from the ssd to the board. If thats the case i will not have to return the item or lose my money but just buy a new cable.
Basically, do some SATA cables prevent negotiation to 6Gbps or is the 3 Gbps something to ignore and instead focus on maybe the adaptor i got to fit in the new ssd might be broken somewhere in the connection?
