Hi All,

I have a firewire 800 external enclosure for my new 750G drive I am preparing for my 2009 unibody macbook pro 15". When the drive starts with major activity, and some other times when the drive is going there is an annoying lag, or "jumpyness" with my mouse cursor. When I use the trackpad everything is fine.

I just reloaded OSX for the purpose of changing out my internal drive which was filling up and starting to give poor performance. I don't think its a major issue, plus, I think it will go away when I put this one inside the computer (on SATA BUS). However, it would be great to figure out why its doing it to begin with.

Any ideas>>>
QUOTE Thanks

Well is the 750gb drive a 9.5mm drive or is it a 12.5mm drive? Because the latter will not fit properly in the MBP.
