With the details provided, it leads me to believe that this is the case. You will want to move the SSD to the optical bay and place the 6G 2TB drive into the main bay.

Comment on 2011 MacBook Pro SATA Problems Resolved! by brendan http://blog.macsales.com/11895-2011-macbook-pro-sata-problems-resolved/comment-page-3#comment-95441 Thu, 28 May 2015 17:27:39 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=11895#comment-95441 Hi, I’ve recently encountered this issue on Late 2011 13″ MBP. Looking at my setup, it seems odd compared to others listed here:

The original SSD has a negotiated linkspeed of 3G, whereas the ‘optical drive’ where I now have a 2TB 6G drive has a negotiated linkspeed of 6G. Should I swap the drives around/will that solve my problem?
Many thanks for any and all feedback.

Intel 6 Series Chipset:

Vendor: Intel
Product: 6 Series Chipset
Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
Negotiated Link Speed: 3 Gigabit
Physical Interconnect: SATA
Description: AHCI Version 1.30 Supported

APPLE SSD TS128C:

Capacity: 121.33 GB (121,332,826,112 bytes)
Model: APPLE SSD TS128C
Revision: CJAA0201

Intel 6 Series Chipset:

Vendor: Intel
Product: 6 Series Chipset
Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
Negotiated Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
Physical Interconnect: SATA
Description: AHCI Version 1.30 Supported

Many thanks for any and all feedback.

Comment on Home Automation With iOS: Use Cases and Standards by Eddie http://blog.macsales.com/29153-home-automation-with-ios-use-cases-and-standards/comment-page-1#comment-95433 Wed, 27 May 2015 04:48:20 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=29153#comment-95433 After looking up “Smart Home” in Wikipedia I’m still unclear as to what can and what cannot be incorporated into a smart home system. I assume an item needs to be directly or indirectly accessible to a hub wired or wi-fi. So I have 2 questions that directly pertain to the Blossom (myblossom.com/technology/)
1) Can a smart home system utilize Powerline technology?
2) If an item has it’s own app, do you then reprogram it, or use another program altogether?

I could not estimate the number of calls I inadvertently cut off (or the number of pictures that I missed) because I turned the phone off as I picked it up. The old top switch had no such problems. The new switch position is a design fail, IMHO, and I cannot understand how it got through the process.

Comment on OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock USB Charging Support Driver Now Available by OWC Jarrod http://blog.macsales.com/30149-owc-thunderbolt-2-dock-usb-charging-support-driver-now-available/comment-page-1#comment-95431 Tue, 26 May 2015 20:24:01 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=30149#comment-95431 Thank you so much for your post about the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. At this time we have not had any other reports or errors in testing this driver update with iOS devices plugged into the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. System software and driver updates when run will not affect the extra devices attached to the system as it doesn’t apply. However, this update driver will still look through everything that’s connected to see if it applies or not. It is possible that an error interrupted the update from completing. Thank you so much for reporting and OWC will be keeping an eye on this. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact us.
