SSD in optical bay recognized but won't format
So my plan with my MacBook Pro was to upgrade the ram to 16gb (done and worked fine),
Replace my standard HDD with an SSD and add a second SSD in the optical bay using this kit, Unibody Laptop Dual Drive and then I was going to run a RAID0 configuration.
I got all the parts put in place just fine with no issues and the machine recognizes both SSDs but the one in the optical drive will not format!
I removed it and used a SATA to USB to format it and then put it back in the machine. I then tried to apply the RAID0 setup and it would not do it because again there was an issue with the SSD in the optical bay.
I again pulled it out and it still wouldn't complete the RAID setup. I have done some research and I have found that it is possibly a problem with the SATA port in the optical bay and there was a firmware update to fix it. I checked and my machine already has the firmware update applied.
I have spent many hours troubleshooting and researching and I am at a loss.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please let me know if I need to provide more info and or screenshots.
Is this a good question?
