    I upgraded my Mac Mini Server (Mid-2010) with two 480 GB SSD drives tonight. The drives are Intel (ssdsc2bb480g401) drives. I know the mid-2010 mini runs at 3 GB/s and the drives I put in are 6 GB/s.

    I thought the drives would work and just run at 3 GB/s. I'm getting a constant beep and LED flash every 5 seconds. I'm thinking the drives are not compatible.

    Anyone else run into this problem?

    You are not giving enough information. Are the drives Mac formatted? DId you tear off the temp sensors on the HDs? Did you unseat and need to reseat your ram?
