New SSD now toast!
I recently bought a 2011 Macbook pro from a friend.
MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.0 15" Early 2011 2.0 GHz Core i7 (I7-2635QM)
Intro Date: February 24, 2011 Disc Date: October 24, 2011
Order No: MC721LL/A Model No: A1286 (EMC 2353-1*)
Subfamily: Early 2011 15" Model ID: MacBookPro8,2
Std RAM: 16 GB Std VRAM: 256 MB*
Std Storage: 500 GB (5400 RPM) Std Optical: 8X DL "SuperDrive"
SO the story goes,
I bought a Deneva 2 type R 200gb SSD on ebay, with hopes of using that drive for my programs and os, and a hd caddy for storage and to hold another hd.
I was able to install MT LION on the ssd with no problems, it worked ok, i enabled trim, and was contemplating turning off my "sleep image" since i have 16gb of ram i thought it might help with speed.
Now i am a photographer, and on my old hardrive i have 20k photo's in aperture library. So i plugged in my old hardrive to open the os on it an begin moving my photos from aperture to another external hardive.
i know confusing, but mt lion wouldnt let me just import the library to aperture, the version of the software was different.
SO i though why not just export all photos from aperture to a photo folder and never worry about ti again. it worked too.
then when it was done i restarted my laptop and it went back to the ssd, upon logging in and opening firefox it crashed, i restarted and and it did a boot up with grey progress bar, then it crahsed and then i thought i should reset the pram, (since it helps with the random crashing ) while booting, did so and then i got a folder with question mark.
Now im in trouble. My ssd doesnt exist anymore, its all gone and now i cant format,
When i try i get a posix cannot allocate memory
I am sorry if this is not easy to follow.
SO my research has led me to think maybe my ribbon cable is toast.
But i dont know how to trouble shoot it.
PLEASEEEEEEEEE help me
Is this a good question?
