    Hi guys!

    I finally got my 13" MacBook Pro of mid 2012 to work with the Samsung 840 SATA III that I bought, this by swapping out the HDD out of the main bay and putting it in the optical bay (I tried to keep it in the main bay at first though)
    I couldn't get my files cloned when the SSD was in the optical bay so...
    This seems to me like the optical bay adapter I bought is not SATA III supported? On the package it says it supports SATA II I didn't think it would've made any difference. On the adapter itself there's only HDD written on it.

    Anyways, I know the the logic board carries the SMS for the HDD that won't be working now, is this really a biggie?
    Perhaps since I managed to clone the files I should try to put the SSD back in the optical bay?

    And, if any one has experience with 'separating' files, I mean putting all the media files, like libraries on the normal HDD, feel free to enlighten me with your knowlegde :D

    As always, I very much appreciate you guys and your support!

    Cheers

    Given all the previous issues you had, I would leave well enough alone if everything is working now. As far as SMS goes, many of us operating with same setup. I turn computer off rather than sleep when traveling to park the HDD and more mindful not to drop when using.

    Problem is, the data doubler is about $90 (including shipment) if I want to get it here in Belgium... So I'm looking for an alternative that can be found on amazon.co.ul (an alternative without $25 shipment) or amazon.de

    Thanks for the other useful links though!

    Okay, that's nice to hear, I didn't even know it was dangerous to just even travel with the HDD :) thanks for the input!

    I've got it out now and it says ATA instead of SATA... I got tired of this and left the HDD out, SDD in main bay and the optical drive back in:) that's how I will keep it for now unless this 'ATA' adapter causes it. I hope so because a 120GB drive is a bit too small
    I appreciate your reply!
