    Just replaced my hard drive in macbook pro 2009 13 inch and if i turn the computer or move it, the hard drive rattles inside as if it is not secured down. Any one have any ideas?

    What type of drive did you install, model?
    Also, did you secure the drive properly, did you have any problems when you swapped it out.

    Thats the biggest reason I went with a SSD no noise.

    I'd double check again. These are required in order to secure the hard drive into the rubber gaskets in your macbook's hard drive bay.
