For a while I had been debating how to make use of my Vertex 2 SSD from my old PC. So last night I finally took apart the iMac and put the SSD in place of the optical drive. While a bit intimidating, the process went fine. Then I picked up the Macbook Air Superdrive, and the drive would show up on the USB bus, but not inject disks. Same thing happened on my 2009 Macbook pro, so I thought it was a bad drive. But testing on my boss's air (and my work mini) showed the drive works fine. So it seems like the USB ports aren't putting out enough power to run the drive...? I like the drive a lot (small), and wondering if a powered USB hub might do the trick. Anybody run into the problem or have suggestions?
