Is my hard drive cable broken?
I hope you can help. I upgraded my macbook pro (mbp) with a 128 Crucial M4 SSD. So I moved the stock-320gb HDD into the optibay.
This combination worked very well for a few months, but then the mbp just was not able to find the SSD anymore (like from one day to the other). The SSD is working perfectly (I tried it in another PC) and also the stock HDD can't be found when I put it in the original harddrive place.
All the cables are plugged in correctly. Also the sleep LED and the IR-sensor are working just as they should.
So to sum up:
Only the hdd/ssd in the optibay is recognized by the mbp.
So what could be the problem? My only explanation would be that the S-ATA cable is broken, but I am not sure. And as they are pretty expensive, I better ask here.
Please excuse my English, it is not my first language.
