mSATA SSD in an Aspire 3935?

Anyone know if I can install an mSATA SSD in the Aspire 3935 to?  (Model no. MS2263)

I have what appears to be two PCIe slots? : a half size that is not in use and a size where the wifi card is mounted. My plan was to get a half size-wifi card for half size slot and remove the wifi card full size and replace it with an mSATA SSD.

Are these same PCIe slots? and also, the BIOS recognize the SSD drive?



These are only the PCIe connectors without SATA bus. They are used for WLAN cards.

    Nice day

    more capacity disc having, on the occasion of the passage of Win 7 I've tried alternatives to 80 GB built-in HARD drive.
    Use an mSATA to IDE adapter and an mSATA SSD 250GB.
    Install Win 7, system drivers, function ok.

    Because I don't know if the types of other manufacturers may be mentioned in this forum, I did not provide all the details on this subject, but you give information that Config. with me is running...

    Very interesting!

  • Portege R930 - upgrade the mSATA SSD succssfull

    Just briefly, I wanted to report an SSD upgrade.

    When I got my Portege R930 (PT331E, i7) two years ago, I changed the HD to a PRO 840 Samsung SSD 512 GB (big improvement). Now, this SSD is too small (photos!) and I wanted to increase the capacity up to 1 TB.

    But instead of a new SATA, I decided to go for an mSATA + adapter SATA I felt an mSATA unit would be more "evolutionary" - next update of the laptop for me would be a Portege Z, who use mSATA.

    So I bought a Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB with a Delock adapter/converter mSATA SSD, made a clone of the Apricorn cable and the software switched the SSD and everything works fine (actually a little faster )! At first I tried to use the clone with software from Samsungs migration but this didn t work, maybe I didn t the right version.

    -Now I have a lager SSD that will live longer than my R930. Please note that I'm not an expert with computers - just a happy user Toshiba! Thanks for a good forum with my good ideas!

  • mSATA SSD + 2.5 "HD on Tecra Z40 - B - 12 p


    soon I'll be getting a laptop Toshiba Tecra Z40 - B - 12 p, reference PT45GE-06S03F7J, it comes with a 250GB SSD mSATA. I want to know if it is possible to install a second hard disk 2.5 "additional or I have to choose between having a regular vs 2.5 mSATA SSD" HD.

    Thank you.

    Well, some models are equipped with an mSATA SSD instead of a hard drive.
    But there is only one place to connect the hard drive SSD SSD/HDD or mSATA.

    In the case of mSATA SSD drive, there is a special mSATA HOLDER that lets connect you the mSATA SSD to a 2.5 SATA controller ".

  • Tecra R840 mSata SSD installation in module 3G position

    I have a Tecra R840-110 model, there is also a 3 G module inside, I would install the mSata SSD pcie slot.
    Is possible to use the mSata SSD instead of module 3 G pcie slot?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    I think that something like this is not possible. Card mother ports are not a kind of flexible ports.
    In the past, that Toshiba gave the second HARD drive, upgrade instead of the optical drive using special adapter.

  • Satellite A210-248 does not recognize the 840 ECO mSATA SSD

    I want to build in my Satellite A210-248 on the port of msata ssd.

    When I build in the ssd bios dind't find the ssd, so I can't install windows in the ssd


    Satellite A210 does not support port mSATA and therefore the mSATA SSD module cannot be used.
    Probably, you have found a mini-PCI on the motherboard slot. It certainly looks like mSATA but its not the same thing.

  • Satellite U400 - 12 p and mSATA SSD

    I have the Satellite U400 - 12 p.
    The motherboard has two free slots miniPCI if they install mSATA SSD OCZ AC Nocti - MSATA - 120G, for example in these slots?

    I agree with Akuma. Satellite U400 is old enough laptop model and its standard SATA port, you cannot use reader with connector mSATA (mini-SATA).
    the mSATA discs are smaller and designed for use on the netboos and ultraportable notebooks.

  • Ultrabook Envy6-1100sl: install a 2nd OS on the msata SSD - Envy6-1100sl

    Hi, I upgraded my envy6 with 16 GB Crucial RAM and 500 GB samsung SSD evo. After upgrade, I did a clean install of windows 10 and stopped to use the itegrated msata ssd. My question is:
    Can I install a second operating system on the msata ssd? Can this bios read the second OS on the msata? Is there a procedure to follow?
    Thank you

    Thanks for suggesting it, but I've created a simple way... I just installed the second OS on the msata. At startup the sistem starts automatically on my main drive (500 GB win10), but if I press F9 when starting, I can see my linux on second drive (32 GB msata) and just choose to start when I need.
    Don't need to grub or similar just manual choice, and that's what I wanted!

  • I need drivers to install Win7 64 bit on mSATA SSD


    I need drivers to install WIN7 x 64 on THNSNH256GMCT mSATA SSD

    Serial number on my product is 23NS10BFTABY

    Thank you!

    This serial number does not help much. It will be better if you can display the name of the exact model laptop and the model number.

    Anyway, visit Toshiba support and download page for your country and if your laptop model is supported for Win7 64 bit, you should be able to find all of the necessary drivers, tools and utilities.

    AMD model No., you can not install a WSSD. The answer on Intel models depends on the specific model. Many cannot use a WSSD as boot drive, but some can.

  • 311c-1120EC: compaq mini 311 & mSATA SSD


    Please, is this model mSATA port for mSATA SSD HDD? I'm not sure... Is - this Port SSD mSATA or modem WAN?

    Thank you...

    Here is the Manual:


    See pp. 4-13. It is a WWAN port and would not recognize a storage mSATA device.

    See p. 4-18 for the installation of the hard disk. Should be a SATA SSD.

  • Satellite U940 - 11 d - 32 GB mSATA SSD use

    Hello world

    I bought the week last Toshiba U940 - 11 d and I would replace the drive HARD 750 GB with 120 GB SSD. I have a question. I would like to install Windows 8 in SSD 120 GB drive and use another DDD which is mSATA for swap or my documents. Is this possible?

    What can I do for my application? Can I use 32 GB mSATA as normal SSD SSD or I can use only to the cache?

    Best regards.

    > I have a question. I would like to install Windows 8 in SSD 120 GB drive and use another DDD which is mSATA for swap or my documents. Is this possible?

    It would be possible if the system of Windows 8 would recognize the mSATA 32 GB as an additional drive. I m not 100% sure of this, but I guess only in case this is not possible, you could use this drive for caching mSATA SSD.

  • Satellite L50-B-1WF - IDE oucederomsurlesecondport mSATA SSD?

    Dear Toshiba

    I wonder, is the Satellite L50-B-1WF has its IDE oucederomsurlesecondport mSata SSD? Some product sites request this. Or y at - it no mSata on this series either?

    Second question: can I install a slim line internal drive BlueRay on it, instead of a DVD player?

    The L50-B-1WF Satellite was equipped with the 256GB MSATA SSD that is connected to the controller SATA using a Committee of Exchange.

    Second question: can I install a slim line internal drive BlueRay on it, instead of a DVD player?

    I don't think as much I know this unit (or model) does not support slim select Bay feature.
    But this is only my personal opinion because I never tested this extension on common laptop... but I used this slim select Bay adapter on my old laptop Portege... but this device support this feature... While it was possible to replace the STRANGE with a second HDD
