    Hi guys! I've just bought an OptiBay adapter to install a 2nd hard drive in my MBP. I removed my optical drive and installed the MBP stock hard drive instead of the optical drive. On the original hard drive bay, I've installed another 320GB S-ATA drive until the new SSD arrives. I am still booting from the original drive (located in the SuperDrive bay), and using the other as a data drive.

    The second drive (which is located in the original hard drive bay) occasionally ejects automatically. It does not eject if I am not using the drive, but when I read or write to the drive, it ejects automatically after about 2 minutes, giving me the "drive was not ejected properly" error. If I use Disk Utility, the drive is no where to be seen and the only way to re-mount the drive is to restart the computer.

    I don't think it's a loose contact as I tried 'shaking' the S-ATA cable and the laptop itself.

    Any suggestions?

    I have exactly the same problem. Did u find any solutions yet? Im using the same 2,53Ghz Mac with 500 GB Seagate (Optibay) und 500 GB Samsung (original) which will be constantly ejected after a couple of minutes in use. The Samsung works perfectly in an external USB drive enclosure. Even if I swap the drives the Samsung lose the conection in Optibay.:confused:


    Nobody can help? plz
