  • MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Hard Drive Replacement

    Great guide, thanks! I installed a new Seagate 750 Gb drive in about an hour, so finally I can copy my iTunes and iPhoto libraries back to my internal HD :)

    There was only one unexpected thing: maybe because my mbp is 3.5 years old now and I've been using it a lot (and thus has spent quite a few hours being quite warm), the tape that secures the IR sensor and the sleep light cable to the top of the drive was almost fused with the plastic sticker that covered the old Fujitsu drive. Eventually I found that sliding a thin, sharp guitar pick under it and thus carefully separating it worked - almost as if cutting it loose.
