    I just upgrade my mbp mid 2009 17" to intel 330 180gb. And the ssd is not tight. Is it normal?

    I tried to flip my mbp to try if the ssd will fall into the place. And it fall.

    Fall? What do you mean fall?
    Did you tighten the screws enough?

    There are two little orange rubber grommet things that sit on the top and bottom of each of those four nubs that screw into the side of the SSD. Check and see if one of those was not positioned properly when you put the drive in. It is pretty easy for them to get misaligned when you are sliding the drive in.
