    Hello all,
    I have an SSD on the laptop plus the old hdd on the dvd compartment.
    My hdd was dying and I replaced it today with a second SSD. Now I have two SSDs on the macbook, which is an early 2008.

    However, I can't see whether the second hdd now has trim support
    I'm afraid you're going to reply that it doesn't but I'll give it a try:

    Does the second disk on the dvd bay has trim support?
    How do I check? How do I enable?

    I already have trim enabler and chameleon!
    Thank you for your help in advance!

    TRIM is a software thing, so the drive location should not be an issue.

    Thank you :)
    But how can I check if it is enabled on that disk the way I can check it's enabled for the main disk?

    Thank you, but that's for the SSD on the HD compartment.
    The SSD on the DVD compartment is on ATA... and ATA doesn't have an option like this, that's why I'm asking.
