SSD in optical bay recognition problem
I put a SanDisk SDSSDHP256G in the optical bay SATA hard drive enclosue in my late 2011 MBP.
(1) On start up there is a error massage that the drive couldn't be initialized. So in the disk utility I format the SSD to journaled (extended) and when I restart, the same problem occurs and the SSD is unformatted again.
(2) When I use the Partition Tab and apply one partition, after a restart the SSD isn't being recognized and even won't show up in the Disk Utility!
With a SMC + a PRAM/NVNRAM reset the SSD will be in state (1) again.
Any help or suggestions?
I run Mountain Lion with the latest updates.
P.S. I put the same SSD model into an early 2008 MacBook and that just works fine.
Is this a good question?
