mSATA - SATA HDD Adapter

This mSATA - SATA HDD Adapter is designed to enable mSATA (mini SATA) SSD to be used as a direct replacement for a 2.5" SATA hard drive. As a result, any equipment, such as Notebook computer, that uses a 2.5" SATA hard drive can be easily converted to use the low power and shock resistant flash media, just like a SATA solid state drive (SSD). Once installed, the mSATA appears as an ordinary SATA hard drive to any OS and can be configured as a boot device.

Illustration of replacing the hard drive with an mSATA - SATA HDD Adapter in a Notebook
Locate 2.5" SATA drive door and remove the screws to open the door. Remove 2.5" SATA hard drive from SATA connector. Attach the mSATA - SATA HDD Adapter with mSATA SSD card inserted onto the SATA connector.

note: the mSATA SSD can be secured inside the hard drive cavity with a double face tape. A small piece of styrofoam block may also be shaped to fit and fill the extra space. See the following link for the installation of the Addonics CF -SATA adapter as a reference.
