Hi all. Having some problems with my Crucial M4 SSD, I have it installed in the Optibay and it contains the OS and all of my apps.

I've had it around five months now with no problems at all but this morning when I awakened my MBP from sleep, I got the neverending spinning beachball and ended up restarting by pushing the power button. Now my SSD isn't being recognised at all, only my HD which just contains my documents is.

Any ideas on what I should do to fix this? :confused: If it helps I'm running Mountain Lion on a 13" late 2011 MBP.

Ive heard of a lot of M4s dying lately, kinda funny really considering people "love" them so much.

Can you pull the drive out and reseat it? Maybe connect it to a USB Enclosure and connect it to another machine to see if it recognizes?

Fixed it. Opened up my MacBook and the ribbon cables had somehow detached themselves. Perhaps I should have tried this before posting... hmm. Glad it's not broken though. :)
