    G74SX Need SATA cable for secondary drive.

    Intel Core I7 - 2670QM 2.2GHz
    NVIDIA GeForce GTW 560M

    C: - 180GB (Not sure where this drive is physically located???
    D: - 500GB (Secondary HDD 1st slot)

    I got a new SSD drive to replace my C:, but now I'm not sure where it is located since my D: is in the 1st slot, and the 2nd is empty.

    I'd like to add the SSD drive in the 2nd extra hard drive slot, however I have lost/trashed the SATA cable needed to connect it to the motherboard.

    Part Number: 60-N56HD1000-D02 (image attached)

    I've found records of it being sold on EBay and 3rd parties, but nothing for quite some time.

    I need one of two solutions:

    1) Where can I buy this part?

    2) Where is my C: physically located? Is it possible to replace this other drive with a 2.5" drive? (I'm assuming no since I cannot find it.)

    Thanks for any help and information you can provide.

    Have you checked with Asus support if they can point you in the direction of whoever sells spare parts in your area? I know I can order stuff like this from a company in Sweden.

    Your C: is probably a msata ssd which is located in a special slot on the motherboard.
    Asus ROG G55VW:
    CPU: i7 3630QM
    GFX: Geforce GTX660M with 2GB ram
    RAM: 2x8Gb 2133MHz Kingston HyperX Impact (surprisingly the G55VW uses the 2133 X.M.P. profile)
    Storage: RAID0 with 2x 256Gb Crucial SSDs (both msata, one in a sata adapter)
    OS: Windows 10 x64

    There is probably only one physical drive, the hard drive is probably partitioned out to 2 logical drives.

    As for the adapter you'll have to buy the parts separately, the only place you'll find them is over in Sweeden.

    Here's a link to the sata adapter board

    Here's a link to the 2nd hdd fcc cable

    I ordered these probably 6 months ago and it took a couple months to fill the order. If you want to buy the brand new parts that I have PM me and we can work something out.
