It is, but I use this model externally with a SATA to USB 3 adapter.

Has someone built a tiny external drive using an M2?

You can buy USB enclosures for them.
Cheers Buzz, bought one for an ancient laptop.

Yes but from what I have seen SATA and NVMe caddies are not interchangeable, I didn’t see any that support both M.2 types.

You don't need a slot, these things are light with no moving parts. Just stick it down somewhere with double sided tape.

Yes you can. But you'd need to check your power supply for a connecter (will look like one that goes into your optical drive if you have one) and a sata cable.

What are you talking about?? There is no 2.5 'slot'? It'll have sata ports and /or an m.2 slot. Likely not an m.2 if it's an older board.

the drives have 2 small screw holes on each long side, and 4 on the top.

you can use 2 side holes to fix it in a 3,5" slot - they are very light so no need for further fixings ( or use whitetack / DS tape!)

There isn't even specific SATA cables for 2.5" drives. All SATA drives will have the same (data) connector and use the same cable. Likewise the power cables (from the power supply) will be compatible across both 3.5" and 2.5" devices, with them both having the same power connector.

Is it the ide cables I'm thinking of?
zcaprd724/03/2020 00:42

The older IDE cables DID have a different connector for 2.5" drives. If I remember correctly the 2.5" IDE connector combined the data lines and power lines into the one connector.

2.5" drive bay, If your PC has a 3.5" bay you'll need an adaptor to slot it in securely.

Don't confuse the chap. IDE is a defunct protocol.

SSD drives are either SATA or NVME. Or even Flash.

A consumer SATA SSD needs a consumer SATA cable or connector, and will fit in a 2.5" drive bay used in laptops. It can be adapted to fit in a 3.5" desktop PC's drive bay if need be.

Bay fitment does not effect it's function, and doesn't even need a drive bay or an adaptor, a 2.5" SSD it can just be connected up and dangle inside the PC if it needs to, the point in the drive bay is to secure it in place and protect it from touching other conductive surfaces. It will even secure into one side of a 3.5" bay without any problems at all, just make sure the screws aren't so long that they drill into the SSD itself when mounting.


An NVME drive has an NVME standard and connects directly to a motherboard. The drive in this deal is not an NVME drive.
