I cannot find a cable like this anywhere. I need the one for the HDD2 slot to install a second hard drive. See pics below for close ups of the HDD1 cable. I've tried "Googling" every number on the cable with no luck.

What are the model numbers of the HDD and the device?

Often the required information is in the service manual.

My first impression is that it may be an SDIO or SD card interface.

It is some sort of 6Gb micro SATA cable. The cable in the pictures is going to my SSD. The cable for the HDD2 slot is likely a bit shorter since the first one goes underneath where you would put the 2nd HDD.

So this is a standard 2.5" SATA SSD/HDD connected to the motherboard via a 22-to-10-pin adapter and flex cable?

It appears that HP refer to the cable/adapter as a "Hard Drive Hardware Kit".

Thank you!!!! I was able to find HP's part listing site with that information. I used the product number in the battery compartment to find the hard drive hardware kit.

The HDD Hardware Kit listed in my previous post includes both lengths of micro SATA cables, 1 metal/rubber caddy, and a metal thing (no idea what it is, part #729712-001).

The part number for the 2nd hdd micro sata cable is: 723421-001 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/HDD-Cable-Secundary-SHORT-72342...)
The part number for the metal/rubber caddy is: 723419-001 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sparepart-HP-HDD-BRACKET-723419...)

I couldn't find any US resellers that offer these parts, but you might be able to get them individually through HP for a little less than getting the whole kit. I hope this helps someone.
