It's possible it was just subjected to a static shock and got scrambled. As long as the data previously on it was not important to you, you can re-initialize the unit (provided it has not been physically damaged).
In Applications/Utilities, launch Disk Utility. Plug in the USB stick. Choose the stick by name in the left side panel, and click the Partition tab. Choose 1 partition. In Options, choose GUID Partition Table. Click Apply. This should reinitialize your stick.

MBP cannot start black scteen with boot up sound


Hi JJ Su,
To connect an external monitor to your MacBook Pro, you will need an adapter that connects to the mini-display port on the MBP, and has another plug that is appropriate for your external display {VGA or DVI}.
Take a look at Amazon to find a relatively inexpensive adapter if you don't already have one.
-Please make sure that you order the right kind of adapter for your MBP since there Apple has used 2 different kinds of ports depending on the particular model!
FYI, if the external monitor doesn't work either, then you probably have a bad GPU {Graphic Processor Unit} on the motherboard. IF the external does work, then you either have a bad internal screen, or some bad connectors/wires inside the MBP...
Hope this helps & good luck!

Clone mac drive


As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

Hi,

The best option would be to purchase an external enclosure for your hard drive. Once inserted and connected to the enclosure you will be able to connect your hard drive to your pc/mac via a usb cable.

WD 500GB MyBook stopped mounting on MacBook Pro


Have you tried it in another computer? I think these kind of problems can sometimes be caused by USB voltage problems, especially if your MBP has an old battery (I believe the battery is used as a power buffer to keep size of transformer down). If that doesn't work, see if you can find someone with the same HDD power supply and try switching that over. Failing that it's data recovery, you may be able to do this yourself by switching the actual hard drive into a new enclosure.

Macbook Pro goes from gray apple screen to black


Try booting into single user mode by pressing Command+S while booting. You should then be at a prompt. Type in:
fsck -f
and press Return. Let it run and see if it corrects any filesystem issues, then reboot when it's done.
