Re: Sandisk SSD in 2008 macbook

I am concerned after reading this post, as my spec is the MCP79.. 


 

go to applications > utilities > system info > SATA, if the SATA chipset is Nvidia MCP79 the SATA link speed will not be negotiated correctly. This is an issue with the Nvidia SATA chipset. SanDisk has not released a FW that locks Extreme II SSD to SATA 3Gb so the link speed will only be 1.5Gb. If you can find the original Extreme SSD you can use the FW linked in this thread to lock the Extreme SSD to SATA 3Gb.

 Looks like you still got this unanswered. Have you tried creating a support ticket onto this? Looks like this is a product specifi query and I wasn't able to find any confirmation online about this.

SDSSDXP-480G-G25 is the sandisk Extreme SSD. you posted in the Extreme II SSD board. That said yes that ssd will fit in mac and there is a FW that will lock it in SATA 3Gb. This update was released for the MCP79 chipset
