This is the first time I'm writing at any forums online in my life! So you can tell how desperate I am to get this issue fixed. I am somewhat in at the outset of a lawsuit and my SDD drive just stopped working. Here's a summary of what happened and what I did: I have a macbook pro mid 2012 and I've upgraded the hard drive to EVO samsung SSD 2-3 yrs ago and everything was working fine until this past week week. So I opened my laptop from sleep mode and it asked me for password, I typed the password multiple times and even though I was typing the right password it wasn't logging in to the OS and it was acting as if I'm typing the wrong password. So I restarted the computer hoping it'll fix the issue. When I restarted the computer the white screen came up but the apple logo never came up, after a while a folder with a question mark came up. From there, I tried doing recovery mode but the hard drive had no option to be verified or repaired on recovery mode. Strange thing was that in recovery mode the sdd was recognized (I could see the name of the drive there) but there was no info about it like how much of it is filled how much is available, it was just that it's 500GB that's it. It said AFP MAster Boot Drive I believe. Anyhow, I thought the drive is faulty so I bought new SSD and installed the new SSD and noticed the hard drive still not working. So I changed the cable. So now I have a new SSD and a new cable installed and the computer is now working. HOWEVEr, I need to get data off my old SSD drive that I took out from the computer. I tried connecting it to the computer with a USB adapter as external hard drive BUT I keep gettinig this error that "DISK IS NOT READABLE", I'm not sure how a MAC ssd is not readable by the mac. But I need help to get DATA out from this old drive. I have tried all the recovery softwares that have trial version and believe me or not they've found "NONE" of my data, literally "NONE", not even one of the PDFs or photos I've had was found. (And i haven't even formatted the drive yet.) I need any guidance how to get files out of this drive. Also, do you not find it suspecious and weird that BOTH MY SSD and my MACBOOK HARD DRIVE CABLE went corrupt at the same time? Because Neither the new cable works with the old drive, nor the new SSD works with the old cable. I've had to change both the cable and the SSD so it works ! Sorry for the long post, your help is very much appreciated.
