I just purchased a Filemate SolidGO ExpressCard SSD for my new MacBook Pro. I installed the card in my laptop and the SSD appears in Finder. However the drive won't let me write anything to it. Is there an addition step I need to take to fix this issue?
   
Please repartition/format the drive:
-Finder->Applications->Utilities->Disk Utility
-Click on the ‘Filemate 48GB SSD’ drive on left side of Disk Utility
-Click on 'Partition' tab on the right half of Disk Utility
-Select 'Partition scheme' and select 1 Partition (or more if you want to)
-Enter volume name, select 'Mac OS Journaled'.
-Click Apply.
-Go to 'First Aid' tab on the right half,
-Click Repair Disk.

If you are intending to play with it as a boot drive, also: Click "Options" and select GUID Partition Table. (make sure you apply this change as well)
