I wanted to create an image of my Mini 9 SSD
before I upgraded to 10.6.3, so I installed the SSD
(not a RunCore brand) in my RunCore external enclosure and plugged it into my iMac. It's been at least an hour and the drive is still attempting to mount.
I'm pretty sure this is the case because I can HEAR the drive being accessed. (Must be something on the circuit board...a DC-DC converter perhaps?). Is this normal? I used this same SSD
in this same enclosure a few months ago to image the drive before an upgrade, and it mounted in less than a minute.
I'll let this run overnight. If I decided to abort the mount, is there any safe way to do this without corrupting the drive?
