View Full Version : G74SX Secondary Hard Drive Attachment

02-18-2014, 10:28 PM
Hello, I am trying to find someway to get a replacement piece for the secondary hard drive. The parts store only sell the ribbon, Im looking for the adapter that goes with the ribbon to connect to the hard drive. If anyone knows where I can actually find this piece. I feel like i would need to buy it from someone who has this laptop and doesn't use a secondary hard drive. Also are there any models of the G74 that use the same physical setup, that I could search for or find parts for online? ANy help would be great, been trying to find it for months now. since the laptop i purchased, the guy failed to have it or something, and I didn't know. If you have one or know where i can get one. Please let me know. I'm willing to pay for it along with the shipping. I already have the Ribbon btwhttp://rog.asus.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=4584&d=1328620248&thumb=1

I've had the same issue for a year now and just found a thread with an ebay link for a 2nd hdd kit. I just emailed the seller and asked if he knew anyone in the U.S. that sold the item. Seller is in Australia and I don't want to pay for shipping. Anyways I will probably have to buy from overseas. Here's the link


Dang it, I just noticed that the item is no longer available. Sorry guys, but hopefully he can direct me on where to get it.

I know this is over a year old now, but I can't find just the ribbon... Does anyone know how to get the ribbon only? I have found so many that are close, but this, if I am counting correctly, is a 16-pin ribbon and the others I find are 14-pin. My ribbon has a short in it, but the second hard drive module is in great shape.

Called ASUS they were of no help telling me my best bet was to send the laptop in for the repair at a cost of $60-$80 and about 3 weeks (for a $10-$20 ribbon).

The Eparts website is under maintenance right now (it was terribly slow a couple weeks ago). Anyway the google cached page gave me this result.

Hard Drive FFC (G74SX)
SKU: 14G124080160
Your Price: $3.99

The description says it's a 16 pin cable. I would guess shipping would be about $9.00 USD. Try to contact them directly to order it or wait till the site comes back up.
