My hard drive cable crapped out... mid 2012 13" MBP. I initially thought it was the hard drive so I picked up the AMD Radeon 480 Gb SSD. Installed it, and still didn't work. So I got a new cable today and installed it myself... mighty proud of myself too since those two little screws holding the ribbon in place under the HDD bracket are a PAIN to get back in the holes!!! LOL. But the change out was quite easy and was less than 15 min. Now my MBP sees the new SSD. I was told Disk Utility could clone the old hard drive (which I am running the MBP off of right now via USB in an external dock). But I couldn't figure out how.... so after fiddling for a few mins I went back to my old go-to... Carbon Copy Cloner. Should I have any issues cloning from a 500 Gb Seagate Hybrid drive (Momentus XT) to the 480 Gb Radeon SSD? I was only using about 180 Gb of the 500... so no chance of running out of room. It's already started the copy, and appears to be going just fine, but should it finish and be bootable as if it was the original drive with all my files still intact? (only much faster obviously being SSD). p.s. - I'm a girl for those on here who said in previous posts to just have Apple store change it out, don't pay them the ridiculous labour cost (unless its being done under Apple Care.. mine ran out). There's actually not much to a Macbook Pro inside. This job is 15 min tops even if you have never done it, you can reverse engineer it without even looking up the instructions online. Just remember, to clean off the old adhesive from the part of the strip that goes to the bracket holding the IR and LED so you will have a nice fit and snug to the case with the new one. and ALWAYS disconnect the battery cable from the logic board before you do anything that requires unplugging or plugging things from the logic board!!!
