My problem is THAT that board does NOT work. I need interfaces and connections that WILL work. Therefore any ideas on what and where to get parts is the information I require to get this SSD to function.
I looked EVERYWHERE! I couldn't find anyone that sells or makes an adapter.
And again, I don't think you understand that it's not as simple as finding a connector.
The Laptop does a lot of other things when you have the SSD plugged in.
Things that an adapter will not be able to do. That's why they don't bother to sell it to the general public.
If all you care about is the connector, then I would call a parts distributor for your laptop
and order that specific part on the laptop (that is if they even sell it).
Otherwise find a dead Mboard on ebay and de-solder it.
This one company I went to in NY did have an adapter but they didn't let me see it up close.
They told me its not just about having an adapter, that you gotta do a lot more and be careful
in what you're doing in order to access it and pull out your files.
I would basically stay away from ever using that laptop and SSD again. It's more trouble than what it's worth.
