Searching around on the Seagate’s support page it does not appear the offer a firmware update to force it to 3G. I’d recommend to contact Seagate directly to see if they have a solution to force the drive to 3Gb/s.

If they do not and you would like a high capacity HDD to install in your optical bay we offer a 1TB HGST 7200RPM 3G drive

I have a mid 2012 max book pro and wasn’t aware of the problems trying to boot from a 6gb/s drive. I will now have that ssd in my primary bay but sadly the drive it has replaced is a nice seagate momentus XT 750gb hybrid which ran nice and quick. I hadn’t intended to replace it. I tried it in the optical bay as well but it tried connecting at 6gb/s as well and wouldn’t boot.

Is there anyway to make it run at 3gb/s?

Thanks for the great articles and help,

Crumbs

Thinking of buying an 8 GB chip and pair it with the 4 GB chip that is already in there. Do you see any potential problems with this?
