Mac Harddrive not readable via external
So my brother decided he wants a bigger harddrive for his MBP.
So i reconed no problem we will take out the old harddrive and then put in the new one, and put the old one into a external case, then he scores a extra external.
But now my problem is, i can't read the harddrive from the new install, though the moment i put the harddrive back into the MBP it works perfectly.
Is there any way to access the drive?

Now you have the freedom of time to discover why the old drive doesn't work in the case. A good start would be to post:
- exactly what case it is (manufacturer, model, any options)
- exactly what the new drive is (again: manufacturer, model)
- exactly what the old drive is (manufacturer, model)
- exactly which MBP model it is (post the Model Identifier from System Information.app)

Though the strangest part about it is that i could copy and access the new drive if i formatted it in the dock but if i formatted it in the pc it didn't read the drive.
I eventually got a Seagate dock and it seems to work perfectly without a hitch.
What would cause the one dock not to read the harddrive? Its the first time i have ever come accross this strange behaviour.
