Hello, does any one could provide me with the part number or any usefull information regarding interpose data cable used in this laptop, since it was not included and i would like to upgrade my storage. Any information is appreciated, so that i would know what i am looking for
I also have a New Inspiron 7000 (7560) and would like to add a second 2.5 inch SATA drive.
Is the interpose cable present for the second drive?
Are the drive brackets present?
If you bought the setup that did not offer the HDD, just the SATA, it is likely same case as mine: it does not provide the interpose data cable. You have to buy it from Dell and it is not cheap, £33.35 inc shipping.
Well, the goods news are that the brackets are present
Hope That helped! Have a nice day ;]
I had the same thing! I was given a 7560 by my company which only had a 256Gb SSD in it, which was over half full the day I got it. I bought a HDD opened up the machine and was utterly appalled to find there is no connector to plug it into! I find this absolutely incredible; now I have to spend yet more money on a flipping connector. Considering the amount that was paid for this machine I am astounded at this penny-pinching measure from Dell. I had to look in the service manual to see what was missing; And Dell's £33.35 for a part that should be included is outrageous. Just bought the required bit from fleabay for £14.99, less than half Dell's price but I still shouldn't have to be buying it..
Very poor from Dell.
Hello Ravi. I can't find the part you mention on the website. I also have a new Dell 7560 with the 256GB SDD but no HDD. I have a 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD that I want to install as a second drive, and I need the correct cable to connect to the motherboard. There is a connector socket just above the HDD caddy (helpfully labelled "HDD" (with a connector around 9mm in width); I presume I need a ribbon cable which connects the SATA drive to the HDD connector port. Does the same cable also power the 2.5" SATA SDD? Thanks. (PS I'm based in the UK)
I bought mine from eBay, it was actually for a Dell Inspiron 3552 but looked like the part in from the service manual (available from Dell website). It was a fraction shorter than I would have liked, but I taped it down to the battery and it works perfectly. The item number was 182414717834 at £14.99, he had 2 for sale so now there is one left (don't fight!). It's the only one I can currently find on UK ebay site but there are a few on US site but postal charges make those prohibitive cost.
I still say shame on Dell for it not being included. Why have the drive bay housing and screws etc, but not the cable? To include it in the machine would cost them a few pence but for us end users its a right pain to source.
