Sep 29, 2017 - Replacing a Mac's 500GB or 1TB hard drive with a same-sized SSD. You can buy an external SSD and connect it to a USB 3 or Thunderbolt port. Then using a Philips head screw driver to attach a hard drive sled to your new drive. MacBook Airs: dead simple, with 10 undercarriage screws, a battery. Choose whichever internal drive works best for you, whether a 3.5” SAS or SATA Hard Disk Drive, because our Mac Pro Sled is compatible with them both. Convenience is at your fingertips! Note: Mac Pro must be turned off before swapping the drives. Lifetime Warranty This product is protected by the manufacturer for a lifetime of use.
Dear strangers, I recently purchased a Samsung 830 512GB, and it worked but I wanted to perform a clean install. So I needed to erase it (just to be sure no space was lost), and selected '1 time overwriting', since I am aware of the fact that 7 or even 35 times takes almost days to complete. My SSD was not my bootdrive, it was connected with a SATA to USB connector to my MBP 13' Mid 2009. Unfortunately,when the erasing-task was in progress, the USB cable disconnected and I got a warning message. Now, when I connect the SSD, nothing happens, it will not even show up in Disk Utility. So I'm unable to reformat it properly. This drive was rather expensive, so I hope there's a solution for this problem.
Thank you very much, Arno Claes Belgium. Try this: Drive Preparation 1.
Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder. After DU loads select your hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.' S ID and size) from the left side list.Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window. Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one.
Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed. This should fix things if the drive wasn't damaged in any way. Given that it's an SSD I would imagine it is OK, otherwise.
