optical bay and video freeze

edited July 2015 in MixEmergency
who's having the same problem..since i installed a 2tb secondary hdd via optical bay i've been experiencing video freezes..what might be the problem...
i've got 1tb as my start up disk..

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)
2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB


  • Known issue with the 2011 models. You're going to have a problem with any disk that is rated SATA3 which the Samsung 2TB drives are. You'll need the 2012 body style to pull off an internal drive that big.
  • The problem could also be the fact you have no dedicated video card ... For SD videos you should be just fine but with HD (720 and especially 1080) I can see you having issues even when running from an SSD
  • As an added note the reason I say this is because I've experienced this with my 13" MBP with the same set up but on my 15" with a dedicated card I don't have any issues
  • @popnwave i noticed i'm mostly having this problem when i'm on serato dj and rane 62.rarely does that when i'm on scratch live and the rane 57..
    @DJBabyBoy303 most of my videos are 720p even SD used to freeze up from time to time..
