How to put a SSD in desktop DVD Drive slot? Tags: SSD DVD Drives Storage Product Last response: October 14, 2010 12:50 AM in Storage Share rimmi2002 October 13, 2010 9:40:32 PM Hi I have an HTPC case. Antec Fusion veris 430. It has slots for only two HDs. I have a 1TB and a 1.5 TB in place. I wanted to buy a SSD and only place I can put it is in the DVD drive slot since I am not using that. I have seen 3.5-->2.5 conversion brackets. Is there anything out there for the DVD slot to -->2.5. Also for the SSD drive do i need 3.5-->2.5 power and data sata conversion cables? Please advice. Thanks.

The power and data cables for a 2.5" SSD are exactly the same as for any other SATA HDD or DVD drive - no special adapters needed. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
