Adapter from MSATA to ExpressCard

Daniel Sagi

Jan 20, 2015
I have a Dell Inspiron 17R 5720, and I wanted to know if I could connect this adapter to my laptop:

Actually the question is do I have an ExpressCard slot in my laptop? I don't really understand this stuff but I know I have a SD Card slot... it is the same as an ExpressCard slot?
And If it's not, maybe there is another PCI Express slot inside my laptop that I can connect it to?

I've opened my laptop and saw this:

I saw that near my Wireless Adapter I have an empty slot of MSATA... maybe I can connect
an ExpressCard adapter or something?

Thanks for you help.
