    I believe my internal HHD's cable has failed, I've tried two drives, along with the standard Apple HDD that came w/ my MBP and it's not finding any of them during the startup disk search. I took it to the Apple store today and the rep told me it was the HDD, which it isn't, is there any other way to tell/test the HDD cable?

    I purchased a new 250GB HDD to test it out and that wasn't found by the laptop either.

    I found the replacement cable at >

    I'll purchase it if and try that if all else fails. Thanks for your help!
