    Hey there,

    I have 2 ssd drives installed in my macbook pro (lion). The drive in the formerly superdrive spot seems to have some strange problems.

    When i try to delete a file:

    "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50)."

    When i try to rename a file or the drive:

    "Try using a name with fewer characters, or with no punctuation marks."

    When i try to format:

    "could not be unmounted"

    Using disk utility -

    Verify permissions has no issues.
    Verify drive has no issues.

    Using disk utility from the Lion bootable disk image yields the same results.

    Worse part is...
    This has happened with 2 different drives - so I am starting to think it is an issue with the SATA connection :eek:

    =========

    Any advice, thoughts, comments, suggestions, opinions or even better - solutions, are greatly appreciated at this point. I really don't know what to do.

    Thanks in advance to anyone.

    EDIT: Just wanted to mention that this was working totally fine in the past - not sure that this started at the same time as I installed Lion, but it could have been. Maybe there is something new built into Lion in an attempt to get revenge for people installing 2nd drives in their macs?

    After a bit of reading, i've come across some posts mentioning I should try looking for process on that drive being run.

    Well in this case, I do actually have another Lion install on the drive which apparently osx is finding.

    running lsof | grep "Second Drive" from the terminal yields

    Not totally sure how to prevent this, or even if this is the cause - the previous drive that had this same issue didn't have an osx installed on it and was just full of files and a windows partition.


    Also, I'd think booting from the Lion recovery image wouldn't be accessing these same files ~

    Will continue looking into this.

    The other issue is when I kill those processes they restart right away, before i can unmount

    Taking the drive out of the optical bay, and mounting it with a sata -> usb works totally fine.

    Any ideas what could be the problem?
