After the original Fujitsu 160gb hd died in my MacBook Pro (model A1226), I was advised at the Mac store to upgrade to a SSD.  I installed the crucial m4 256gb internal SSD and powered on MacBook Pro from the Snow Leopard install disk so I could use disk utility to erase and reformat the new SSD.


The problem is the SSD is not showing up in disk utility.  I have opened the computer twice and checked cable connections and still no luck.  I have powered off computer and let sit for a while and tried again.  I check compatability on crucial site before ordering SSD so I don't know what the problem is.  Bad disk?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Model a1226
