Hello. I have a G751J and I am replacing the M.2 256G SSD with a SATA 1TB SSD. My issue is I do not have a second 2.5inch metal caddy to hold the new SSD in place. Can anyone point me to where I might find one?

If your replacing one with the other what do you need?

A quick goggle search finds a few of them on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/390674613350?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true) here is one example

My apologies. I wasnt very clear in my OP. I am not looking to replace the optical drive with a HDD/SDD. WHen I opened the back panel on my G751 there are 2 spaces for 2.5 inch drives. One contains a normal 2.5 inch 1tb HDD and the other has a 256G SSD that looks like a stick rather than a 2.5 drive. It has its own plug in but there is a sata port to plug in a standard HDD/SSD. What I need is the metal cage that you mount the drive in and then it mounts to the machine. Similar to the picture I have included. The picture is for a dell but it is similar however the mounting points are different for the Asus. Thanks again for your time.

Edit:
Here is a picture of the G751 with the M.2 style SSD on the Left and the standard on the right. I will be replacing the M.2 Stick style with a 2.5 1TB SSD so I need the mounting cage that you see on the drive on the right.

Any particular reason you want to replace an M2 drive that is far faster than a 2.5 in sata drive?

Because I have a 1TB SSD 2.5 drive and do not want to pay near 450 dollars Canadian for a 1TB M2. And I could use the space. The SSD I have is a 1tb Crucial MX300 2.5 SATA 6Gb/s, which from what I have read is not a bad drive.
