I just purchased a Electra 3G SSD from OWC and installed it into my 2009 Macbook Pro 2.26Ghz 4GB of ram. However, everytime I launch iPhoto it gets the beachball "stall" icon for about 20 full seconds. Does anyone know what the deal is. I am using a fresh Install of Mountain Lion (about a week in use) and iPhoto 09 (with all the latest firmware updates from Apple). It is very frustrating and I am hoping someone on here who is very experienced has a solution.
I did install Snow Leopard off of a CD and then upgraded it with Mountian Lion from the app store if that makes a difference.
Thanks so much to anyone who helps,
I will be eagarly waiting for a response.
Here's the library you want to look in:
The house icon is your home folder and will be named with your short account name. If you've run iPhoto even once you will have a file titled com.apple.iPhoto.plist.
You can download and use Find Any File to search for com.apple.iPhoto.plist. FAF can search areas that Spotlight can't, like invisible folders.
