Great guide. I replaced my failed Seagate 1Tb (factory installed as second drive) with a new Seagate FireCuda 2Tb. By choosing another Seagate I was able to simply plug the existing heat sensor cable on to the new drive and everything works perfectly. No fan issues, no extra software required. Time Machine has restored about 750Gb overnight, and everything is back to normal
Great guide. I did this at same time as replacing my failed internal 1Tb Seagate hard drive (second disc factory fitted). All running great now.
I replaced my failed Sony AD-5680 superdrive with a compatible Hitach GA32N, only problem I had was that it was quite tricky to get the new drive in the caddy with the mounting srew holes lined up, needed a fair bit of pressure whilst lining up screws. Good gide - Thanks!
