Changing M.2 SATA SSD to 2.5" SATA

Feb 2, 2020 1:13AM PST

Hi guys!
I bought a new 2.5" SATA SSD for my laptop that has currently an M.2 SATA (pictures shown below) with converter. How can I install my new SSD (regular 2.5") into the laptop?
I bought this because I didn't know that it has an M.2 in it until disassembling it btw :/
Picture 1, picture 2

Thanks in advance for your help!

Return it (or sell it, if returning isn't possible) and buy what you need.

slot or does it even have one? There is no reason to replace the m.2. Now if the M.2 is the only drive then you have to replace it.

I have used some neat ODD drive tray adapters to fit 2.5 inch drives into laptops that need more storage but not the optical disc drive. Also in some we can swap in the ODD when needed.

I could return it and the seller changed to a compatible one.
