    I have a MacBook Pro mid june 09.
    I had a SSD Intel X25-M, which was working properly.
    Two weeks ago, the drive was not recognized anymore.
    I checked on other PCs and the drive was indeed dead. Intel sent me a new one, which was not recognized on my MAC but recognized on other MacBook (mid 08) and PCs.
    I went to the AppleStore and told me that the SATA bracket was broken. They told me that an original Hard Drive (sold with the MAC) is now recognized. Still, however, the SSD is not working.
    How can this be ?
    Also, Apple does not want to sell me the original hard drive and cannot give the exact reference of the Hard Drive.
    What can I do ????

    Have you formatted the drive yet? Try erasing/formatting it on another Mac and see if that helps. Alternatively, try another hard drive in your computer to see if indeed the computer does recognize other drives.

    I will try. I just fear that if I buy a standard Hard Drive it will not work.
