    Hi guys, I really need the forum's help with this one, I am about to explode from annoyance. I just got my Crucial M4 SSD with transfer kit and I even asked Crucial if the kit would work with Macs, a rep said it would. I put it in to clone the drive, following all instructions, and then when I restart instead of booting to the disc to clone it boots regularly and a window pops up saying This disc was not readable on this computer, with options to ignore, verify (i think) and eject. I tried using SuperDuper! the cloning software that came with it for Macs, but it doesn't recognize the SSD connected to the USB drive, so there's that problem also.

    Anyway I can clone it otherwise? I don't have much data (17 gb) so should I go the route of clean install? How would I go about doing that in the simplest way? And last question, is it a problem with the ODD itself?

    Please, I could really use the help.

    Did you use Disk Utility to format the drive first?

    Said above.
    Its possible that if you didnt format the drive, it could be in MS-DOS.
    It has to be in Mac OS Journaled.
