Hi guys. A friend has given me a Sony VAio notebook and has asked if I can replace the hard drive with a ssd. Looking at the current drives connector...I've never seen one like it. It's not sata (definately not ide!) and the ssd I have is sata. Does anyone know if there is a converter available? The notebooks model number is VPCYB3V1E. thanks.
Your PC has SATA as well. Your connector for the hard drive is an adapter already. Simply remove the adapter from the HDD and install it on the new SSD. Should be the same as: https/www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhzHCklMNo4
Hi guys. Sorry for the late reply. Doh! What a plonker I have been. You are right, there was an adapter connected to the drive. Removing this revealed the sata ports. ssd installed and working fine. Thanks again!
