MBP Optical Drive SSD Replacement: Error -36
I'm trying to replace the optical drive in my MacBook Pro with a 500GB SSD (Crucial M4 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004W2J...) plus a generic hard drive caddy (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058AH...)). Unfortunately, once I install the drive, whenever I try to write a file larger than ~200KB to it, I get the error "The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in "[file name]" can't be read or written. (Error code -36)".* I can read data from it normally.
If I put the SSD in the external enclosure I bought for the SuperDrive, it works perfectly, reading and writing any size of file.
If I put the original SuperDrive back in my computer, it can play DVDs just fine, and I have successfully burned a CD at a speed of ~25x.
Any thoughts? I thought it might be the cable between the drive and the motherboard, but I can't see any damage, and being able to write CDs would seem to rule that out.
- At one point I got "Error -50" whenever I tried reading or writing, but after checking all the cables, it stabilized on "Error -36" when writing non-trivially-sized files.

Is this a good question?
