Hey, I accidentally broke the connector from the logic board. Can it be fixed somehow? I tried to glued back together but it doesn't work.
I made the same mistake! Did you solve it?
I have a Macbook Pro 15″ (late 2011) running OS Sierra with 128GB SSD in the main bay and a 1TB Toshiba MQ01ABD100 HDD Sata II (3Gb/s) in the optical bay. Both formated as Mac OS Extended Journaled. OS and apps are running fine from the SSD, however the HDD is behaving odd: I can’t write anything on it, even when permissions say “anyone can read and write”. I got error code -50. Sometimes, the drive icon takes a while to appear in my desktop. I already:
– Replaced the optical drive flex cable.
– Tested the HDD as external drive via USB connection. (It works)
– Relaunched the finder.
– Reset SMC and PRAM.
As the optical drive was “out of service” long before I made the dual drive setup, I begun to think it might be a problem with the computer hardware itself, but then I remembered my logic board was replaced by Apple only few months ago. And a friend told me he succesfully did the dual setup regardless his optical drive wasn’t working.
I don’t know what else to try. Help!
