Try using Disk Utility to mount the drive. This can be found in the Utilities folder within the main applications folder. Launch Disk utility and see if the drive comes up in the list of drives down the left hand side. I presume that the hard drive in the enclosure is spinning. You can normally hear it, and feel a constant light vibration.

Macbook Pro replace Harddrive


Take off the bottom. Remove the screws from the hard drive caddy. Remove the cable from the hard drive. Reverse to install the new drive. Be very careful with the cable as they are very fragile.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book


You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

What's the largest internal hard drive available for a 15" mac book pro (intel)? Where can I buy it?


Check Other World Computing. It's a great company. You can use the 'OWC Upgrade Center' to figure out what drive to get. You plug in your 'books details and it shows you only the drives that will work in your model. It can depend on if its a Unibody etc.

You can install a 1 terabyte in some models. Again, depending on how old and which mode you have.

They also have videos showing how to install drives, iPod batteries and all sorts of usefull stuff...
I've bought a few drives from them. I ordered the wrong one the first time and they took it back and sent me the correct one, no problem.

OWC's address is www.macsales.com

You can also go to powerbookmedic.com for an HD and help on how to install it. They also sell kits to install a HD in the optical drive space.

Hope that helps

What courses the hard drive to file on a mac book pro laptop.


Hi Stephanie
This is one of those questions that's virtually impossible to answer, it could be anything.
Your best option is to take to a mac specialist (the dealer where you bought it) or to an Apple Store if you have one near by.
It may not need a new hard drive, it may just be corrupted and need sorting out. On the other hand it could have failed mechanically and will need to be replaced - check your warranty. There have been a number of reports of HDs failing in some models and Apple have replaced them free of charge as there was a manufacturing fault at the HD factory that didn't come to light until the drives had been running for about a year.
You have been using Time Machine to back up your work haven't you?

Hard drive failure

You can contact this companies regarding data recovery. The "Genius" was wrong about the drive being retuned to Apple, that will only occur if you have a system under warranty, and you would be returning it to Apple to avoid being charged.

As far as replacement hard drive going for $325, that too is pretty steep, see this link:
