Best HDD replacement for optical drive
Hi guys im on SSD(main drive) + HDD setup, my HDD was broken (optical drive HDD) last week so I decide to buy an 1tb WD scorpio blue but I recently found out that the optical drive only accepts 3g sata my 1tb WD scorpio blue is a 6gb sata so what brand model would you recommend for this I cant return this because compatibility is buyer responsibility here in the philippines
Im running on yosemite
So here are my questions
1) is there a possible solution for this HDD to work on my mac (1tb WD Scorpio blue 6gb ata
2) What brand or model of HDD should i buy that's compatible to my late 2011 macbook pro 13"
3) After I removed the broken HDD it worked on my HDD enclosure is there another problem like sata cable or optical caddy? (I used disk utility before I removed the HDD it says that the drive is failing and cant be repaired back up as much as possible SMART status : Fail)
