I have buy a new Intel 520 SSD for my Macbook (late 2008). I've read that the 6Gbit SATA 3 speed of the SSD would be scaled down to SATA 2 speed because my Macbook doesn't support SATA 3. But my system currently operates at just SATA 1 speeds (only 1.5 Gbit are negotiated).
My MacBook does not recognize the SSD when I installed it. Is there a new firmware for the Intel 520?
Sorry for my bad english!
Hello apfel92, on this case it is not recommended to use an Solid State Drive with an older SATA controller since you might experience hardware compatibility issues or a very slow performance from the Solid State Drive, the reason for this is that the SATA controller was not designed to work with this type of fast hard disk drives and it is possible that it will not recognize properly the adapter.
This specific family of Solid State Drives does not have a new firmware available.
