You'll need a fixed SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) HD or SSD for your system. If you review the Red note at the bottom of this: OWC Data Doubler. A SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) HD or SSD won't work in this system reliably. The systems SATA port has a known compatibility issue. You also can't use an auto SATA port sensing drive (one that can run in either SATA II or SATA III system) it must be a fixed SATA II drive.

The BUS on the optical drive port is not fast enough to handle it. Try putting a standard HD in that position.
