MacBook Pro owners seem to be getting the shaft when it comes to hard drive problems. First it was the noises, which Apple fixed in a recent software update, but that update might have spawned another problem with the 17-inch MacBook Pro.
According to 9to5 Mac, many 17-inch MacBook Pro users are unable to upgrade their hard drives to SATA II disks after installing the update. From system crashes, freezes and other problems, people are annoyed that they are unable to upgrade their drives after the update. Some are reporting that the MacBooks don't recognize third-party drives when attempting to install OS X.
The fix? 9to5 reports that some Apple Genius Bar techs are using tools to reinstall a previous firmware version on affected MacBook Pros.
It will be interesting to see if Apple will provide another fix for these ongoing hard drive problems.
