    I've had my 840 for about two weeks now and the first thing I did was to download trim enabler. The problem is I'm not sure if it is actually working. S.M.A.R.T is not populating any data other than up time and Power cycle count. Any idea if it is working right? I am running snow leopard (still.. yes i know)

    Thanks for your help.

    Marc :cool:

    Crystaldiskinfo is for Windows only.

    OP - Maybe if you can find a mac alternative to crystaldiskinfo it will highlight which commands are being sent?

    I think I might have found the answer to my question. Seems I installed a 64 bit version of trim enabler.. I guess snow leopard should be installing the 32bit version.
