    I "just" installed my new Crucial 256GB SSD w/ Firmware 2. I transferred over all of my files, and my MBP boots in 15 seconds. I would like to use Black Magic's DiskSpeedTest to see my speeds.... and when I open it I get a message saying the disk is read only. I am confused as to why this is....How do I go about fixing this? Is it a problem?



    Edit: I seem to be able to do everything else.. Is there a test to see why this is happening?

    Both those links don't particularly help me.

    I transferred from Lion Recovery from an external hard drive, which used to be my main hard drive. Which had no problems.

    Right now I'm reinstalling Lion. See if that helps.

    I had the same problem and this is how I resolved it:
    Right click on your SSD > get info > add your user to access and permissions and set the privileges to read and write.

    I believe my SSD has firmware 2.... Is there a way to check? When I booted from the CD it said it was not eligible for an update. (or something similar to that message)

    First, that didn't fix the problem.

    Second, I asked another question that had nothing to do with what JronMasteR said.

    Thanks though. :cool:

    Fixed it though.

    I'm not sure how the wheel group gets added to the user group for Macintosh HD mount point. It should not be visible and only member is root. Certain apps like Blackmagic will have write issues because wheel is used instead of admin. I recommend trying repair disk permissions first. I ended up adding the admin group myself then ran repair permissions.
