Do they sell an adapter for this?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have a Samsung RF511-S03 laptop. The optical drive in it uses this Sata Connector in the picture.
Now I don't use the Optical drive at all, I just recently put a SSD in my laptop but it's too small
to hold my large files and such. My question is do they sell an adapter that goes from Optical drive sata to regular sata so I can hook up my HDD?



EDIT: I found this online, not sure if it'll fit in my laptop though.

I think it's called an mSATA to SATA cable and they're quite expensive :(

What about that link I have there, that looks like it's fit my laptop.

Here's an adapter:

This is what I was originally looking for but this enclosure I found on ebay looks better. Gives my laptop a more clean look instead of a hole being in the side.
