I bought a 1TB SSD/hybrid drive from Ifixit.com to upgrade the 256GB HDD that came with MBP 2010. Disk Utility could not see the new drive on the original HDD cable but saw the old one just fine. New replacement cable was not the correct size for the MBP 2010 but worked just fine in my other MBP 2012. Put the stock HDD back in with the original HDD cable, removed the optical drive and replaced with the 1TB dual drive per instructions without problems. I have read online that the SATA HDD cable in MBP 2009 and early 2010 was too slow to read modern high-speed SATA drives.

Only glitch I found is DVD/CDs will not mount in the optical drive using the external USB cable that came with the dual disk kit purchased here. Will eventually have to find time to try swapping the optical drive with my other laptop to test internally as well as the external cable. At this point I don't care, didn't use the optical, love the two working internal disk drives. Thanks guys!

I just did this upgrade on two different MacBook Pro models: a mid-2009 and a mid-2010. The upgrade itself worked fine but now both MBP's show the same error: "Wi-fi: No Hardware Installed."

I tried resetting the SMC and the NVRAM but no change. I also tried booting from a startup thumb drive but also no Wi-fi.

What did I do wrong and how do I fix it?

I replaced Primary HDD with SSD and moved HDD to optical slot with caddy, and it seems works, but HDD in optical slot is incredibly slow now. Macbook 7.1. Sierra. SSD Savage 250Gb.

So, now I have two HD's. 250 gb SSD and another HDD 25Gb. Thanks to iFixit and iRobot for this guide!
