Installed a NEW OWC ssd drive. Upon installation it worked fine for 6 months, then was not seen by Macbook. Removed drive and installed in external OWC ENVOY housing and computer starts flawlessly, what gives ???? Any IDEAS ????

Sounds like maybe the SATA cable that runs from the hard drive connector to the logic board may be defective. Check out the part and location at www.ifixit.com.
