late 2011 13 inch MacBook pro hard drive cable
MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Model A1278 Early 2011/Late 2011) Hard Drive Cable / New
my computer couldn't find my hard drive. upon start up their'd be an icon of a folder with an x through it.
i took out the hard drive and put it in a USB external hd enclosure. the hard drive worked fine externally, so it wasn't the hard drive that was the problem.
i looked around and found that macbook pro hard drive cables fail often.
i ordered a new one, and installed it in minutes. i'm back up and running.
100% worth it. great purchase.
