Comment on OWC Introduces “techKNOWlogy” Video Series by OWC Alex http://blog.macsales.com/13511-owc-introduces-techknowlogy-video-series/comment-page-1#comment-94030 Mon, 22 Sep 2014 20:33:00 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=13511#comment-94030 You can install the Data Doubler first if you wish, it won’t hurt anything. Really you can install the Data Doubler or setup Boot Camp first, either way works. The Boot Camp Assistant will be inclined to set everything up on the SSD anyway since the Mac OS is already there, even if you have a second drive installed.

To allow both OSs to read and write to the second drive does require some special formatting or software. You can either partition the drive into two pieces, one Windows and one Mac. Alternatively you can set it up for MSDOS (FAT) or ExFAT partitioning to allow both OSs to work off the same volume. The third option is to keep the whole drive Mac formatted – MacOS Extended (Journaled) – and then use software such as MacDrive 9 Pro to allow the Windows OS to interact with the Mac formatted drive.

If you have any additional questions, please contact our tech support team via phone at 800-869-9152, or 815-338-8685 internationally; by chat; or by e-mail.

Comment on OWC Announces Industry’s First 16GB RAM Upgrade For Latest Apple MacBook Pro Models by OWC Alex http://blog.macsales.com/9283-owc-announces-industrys-first-16gb-ram-upgrade-for-latest-apple-macbook-pro-models/comment-page-1#comment-94026 Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:59:16 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=9283#comment-94026 That is most certainly possible! As noted in this OWC Rocket Yard article, you can get some extra benefit from using the 1600MHz memory in the 2011 MacBook Pro. The hybrid drives work very nicely in this computer as well. The 2011 MacBook Pro is compatible with 16GB of RAM.

1) Why AAA instead of AA?
2) Will it work with 1.2v rechargeables as well as 1.5v alkaline and lithium batteries?

My HD has corrupted sector so I have to replace my HD. My idea was to replace it with 1 TB SSD Hybrid 2.5″ Hard Drive and to replace my existing memory with 2 X 8 MB DDR3 1333 Mhz/ or preferably 1600 Mhz. would this be possible with the existing MBP model? Many thanks in advance for your reply.

Comment on Running Low On iPhone Storage? A Simple Restore May Free Up Space by OWC Erik http://blog.macsales.com/26568-running-low-on-iphone-storage-a-simple-restore-may-free-some-up/comment-page-1#comment-94020 Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:57:43 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=26568#comment-94020 Good tip on the audio setting. With such a large chuck of music I should try that setting again. I think I don’t do it now because when I tried it before it was taking an extra long time to run a sync because of the conversion process and I was impatient.
