Hi everybody

I am by no means an advance mac user, but decided it's time to do some upgrades on my MacPro 3.1 (early 2008).

I just upgraded to Mountain Lion and bought myself a new SSD Crucial M4. To fit the 2.5" Crucial SSD in the MacPro hard-disk bays/sleds I bought a Icy Dock (SAS&SATA HDD/SSD Converter).

Starting up the MacPro after installation, OS X finds the disk and opens Disk utility. I can see the disk on the left side in the index, but when I try to format it (erase) I get a message that the disc can't be opened. I tried the same with trying to partition the SSD but with the same result.

Opened the Mac again, but the sled/disk is nicely in bay 2.

any ideas what I am missing?

QUOTE Thanks
