does someone know where and how can I buy this part? I have e7440 - and thay put me the msata in place to WWAN... so now I want to add another HD like in the pic - but thay didn't put me the sata controller with it baket and with it cable to the motherboard... I really need this part to connect my 2nd HD... please help me !!!
Thanks so much for your quick reply! : )
In my laptop the orange cable is curved like in that picture (the pic is taken from the manual), and I would have to really force a 7mm HDD down on it to make it fit. I am wondering if that could damage the orange cable.
But the most important issue: how did you fixate your 7mm HDD in there? The frame from the SSD can't be used, and I can't find anything online...
There is no problem with that orange flat cable, it just sit's under the 7mm ssd :)
there is no problem to fit 7mm ssd/hdd, it fits perfectly - i am using intel 520 series SSD in a standard HDD frame.
feel free to ask any more questions :)
I am very interested in this subject. When you put in the 7mm HDD, weren't there any issues with that orange flat cable-strip underneath it? (See pic.)
It seems to make it difficult to build in the 7mm drive...
Also is there a product number on the frame? Since I got the E7449 with an SSD, I have to order the frame...
If You will order E7440 with standard HDD, it is in fact 5mm HDD fitted in a pair of rubber distances which make it 7mm :)
So 7mm HDD/SSD fits just fine(for me it is Intel 520 Series SSD), without any modifications in standard hdd frame.
The Latitude E7440 was only tested and shipped with 5mm drives. It requires a 5mm bracket (support frame). Dell part number for the support frame is FCN4M.
