    Question Putting 2010 HDD into 2006 MBP??
    Hi all, this is my second or third post on here, I am helping a friend out with his 2006 MacBook Pro, I have a 250GB from a 2010 MacBook Pro, to my knowledge there is an adapter or caddy I can buy to make this switch possible.

    I scoured the internet and could not come up with anything that was letting me know what would work, sorry for such a noob style question. If you guys know of anything could you post a link, and also I have access to a microcenter, maybe they would have it?

    The stats for the 2006 MBP are below, thanks in advance.

    I'm not really sure what sort of adapter or caddy you are talking about. Any mounting bracket or hardware that is needed is already connected to the HD that is in the 2006 MBP.

    If for some reason this 2006 MBP doesn't have an HD in it...or doesn't have the proper bracket...then this is what you need:

    MacBook Pro 15" (Model A1150) Hard Drive Bracket (922-7265, 922-7266) - iFixit
