acer travelmate b1 B117-M-P7VH install additional ssd

apgrapgr Member Posts: 34 Enthusiast
hi, my B117-M-P7VH (https://www.mediamarkt.de/de/product/_acer-travelmate-b1-b117-m-p7vh-2292498.html) has a 64gb emmc drive, and i want to install an additional sata3 ssd for additional data storage, like a crucial mx500.
i can see that it fits in the bay and there is also a suitable connector. what i'm wondering is if i dont need any screws or cage to fix the drive in place.
has anyone done this before? do the models which come with preinstalled hdds have screws? i'd be interested in pictures to compare to my situation.

    what am i supposed to look at in this link? i did not find the mylar thing or any other useful information there.
    what happens to the mylar and sponge? is that glued to the harddrive?
    is that how the ones shipped originally with a hdd are? no screws?
    in that case i would just grab some foam and diy it, feeling a bit at peace but not much. at least the ssd is way lighter than an hdd. ;-)

    Now, on the questioning of colleague kno63, I also think that it is not worth paying the amount of 30 euros! You may be able to find similar support at a repair center.
