You've probably gotten a 3GHz SATA drive and your Mac will only read at 1.5 GHz. Go to the web site of the maker and look up the jumper setting on the drive and set it for a lower speed.

but i can't find the old one (the original from mac ) either. I have read that the cable from the hard disk often get damaged in macbook pro 2009 and 2010 models.
