My late '08 MacBook is having problems. Whenever I open Chrome, I get the beach ball. When I tried using Cmd+Option+Esc, I got a beachball for that window only when it opened. I couldn't switch between Windows when the beachball happened, the system was locking up. I put in my old 160GB hard drive with Leopard on it, and now it's running fine. I can't wipe the old hard drive since I have important stuff. Is the hard drive going bad? I was trying to go through Carbon Copy Cloner to clone it, but I got another lock up. I don't have a 2nd SATA to USB adapter. So here are all my questions: 1) Is my hard drive going bad? 2) Could I take the DVD drive out and put the HDD in there without getting an adapter, just to use to clone the hard drive?
