SSD / Paper Weight Question

PostTue Mar 11, 2014 12:16 am

So back in July I bought 4 Crucial 256 gb M4 drives. Well it looks like that was another error on my end since they don't seem to be compatible with the BMPC 4K. So here's the question. Outside of selling them on e-bay or using them as a $700 paper weight is there anything I can do with these drives to get some sort of value out of them?

Like putting them into your computer?
You are aware that these are actually computer drives?
They would make a nice RAID.

I assumed they were. Great idea Frank. I've never set up a RAID before. Any advice?

For starters are you on OSX or Windows?

And also what machine are you using?

Ben just look for a 4-bay RAID enclosure that will accept 2.5" SSDs and supports Thuderbolt or Thunderbolt2 or USB 3 or eSATA depending upon how you want to connect it to your computer.
