Why can't I format nor copy files to 6Gbit/s SSD in optical bay?
I've replaced the optical drive with a SSD SATA 3.0 6Gbit/s Samsung 840 Pro in a optical bay hard drive enclosure but I can't format it nor copy files (a few files work) to it. I have read that some MacBooks only support 3Gbit/s in the optical bay but when I check my SATA chipset on my Mac it states both chipset offers 6Gbit/s.
When I put my SSD in a external case and connect it to my Mac through USB I can format the SSD and copy files to it. So no problem with the drive, right?
Do I still have to place my SSD in the main bay and put the old HDD in the optical bay to make it work? And if so, will my Mac automatically boot from the HDD on the first boot even though it's in the optical bay? Or do I have to clone it first?
Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
