How do you install a 2.5 inch SSD in the TravelMate P2 P2510-G2-M?

Hello,

The TravelMate P2 P2510-G2-M has a spot for a 2.5 inch SSD to be installed but I do not see any ports on the motherboard that a SSD can be plugged into. 
I purchased a TravelMate P658-MG-749P in January that had a similar design but I was able to use a 
50.RZCN2.003 Acer Aspire M5 M5-581T HDD Hard Drive Connector Cable
 to install a 2.5 inch SSD.

There is no place on the motherboard that I can see to plug in a hard drive connector cable.

I did speak to Acer technical support and they told me that it was possible to install a 2.5 inch SSD but would not instruct me how to go about doing it.

Thanks

Bmilligan

    Hi,
    It's hidden under the WiFi card, if you remove the card you can find the connector.

    Hello,

    Just purchased my new ACER TRAVELMATE P658-M-70S3 and need to install a 2nd 2.5" HDD into the empty slot.
    Please let me know what connector will do? 
    There is a slot labeled JHDD1.

    Thanks a lot,
    Zlatko.
