Title:

MacBook doesn’t recognize new hard drive

Text:

I’ve tried 2 different hard drives in my MacBook after I had problems with the original.

When I boot to the USB, disk utility doesn’t see the new hard drive. If I put the old one back in, it will recognize it, but it fails out when I try to format it.

I’m hesitant to blame the hard drives since I’ve now tried 2, but I can’t think of another potential cause.

TIA

MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Early 2013
