Hello everyone,
Putting a 3.5 SSD in my mid 2011 imac 21.5" i removed the 2.5 HHD and I'm having trouble mounting the converter bracket.

Is there anyway to attach pics, show you guys where I'm stuck?

I'm sure that has to be a typo, but,

The HDD in that iMac is a 3.5" device.
SSD's are usually 2.5"

Note in the video that the HDD was not removed and the SSD was "stuck" behind the optical drive.

Any reason for removing the HDD?
