    Unusual data connector (not SATA?)

    Somewhat related question - I just bought a PNY CS900 (960GB) and went to install it and the data connector doesn't fit (power pins are just fine). Pretty sure I'm losing my mind. Any idea what the corrector type is? Pic so you can see what I'm talking about.

    The drive is a SATA connector, the other is something else.

    Yes can see the sata power (smaller) and data but don’t have a clue what the other you are holding up next to the drive is.*

    So the SSD has a power and data component. The power is the bigger connector and the data is the smaller . The cable in my hand is pre-installed on the motherboard for the addition of an ssd in the 2.5" bay above the dvd drive (the cable is initially tucked under the drive bay). The cable splits into the power (which fits the pins on the SSD just fine) and the data - which is pictured and obviously doesn't fit. I feel like a toddler that can't put together a two piece puzzle and and quickly losing the last of my sanity.

    It may be some sort of proprietary connector to connect to some sort of caddy/backplane if it is indeed for SATA devices. Or maybe it's for some other accessory entirely. Either way it's not designed to fit directly to a normal SATA drive. You should use a standard SATA cable connected to a free header on your motherboard and forget or remove that cable.
