Which Motherboard ribbon cable to add 2.5 inch drive to Acer Swift 3?

Hi, I have a Swift 3 SF315-52-81HD which came with one 256gb m.2 ssd and a space for an additional 2.5 inch drive. However, it came with no way to hook it up, which seems very silly. I did some research and bought a cable I thought would fit into the CON1502 connector on the MB, but it turns out it doesn't fit, and even when I forced it to fit, the drive was not recognized. Can someone please point me to the exact part number I need for this specific model?

    Hello,
    The part number is this one:
    50.GZCN5.005 - CABLE HDD
    FYI, the right connector is CON5102.

    Thanks for the response. I know that is the connector on the MB I need, but there was no cable included, so I need to know the part number of the ribbon cable needs to go from that connector to a 2.5 inch drive connection.

    This forum is weird. I keep trying to submit a reply and it says my comment has to be approved. Please only post one of the messages I submitted, forum Mod. 

    35 dollars shipping for that part is insane.

    XXXvelo, It's based on where you are located. We are currently Canadian based, so we have to ship it across the border and that gets pretty expensive.
