Betreff: IdeaPad L340 - Where to obtain cable to connect internal HDD?

I'll keep an eye on this thread but for now, I'll link the cables I tried.

The one for the legion was too short but also didn't work. I even tried to flip the ribbon cables even though I knew that was incorrect. I'd love to see other people's attempts at fixing this. For now, I'll just have to return my 2.5 inch hard drive/cables and compromise with a USB C hard drive bay.  Smiley Sad

As mentioned above, the cable and hard drive bay will be available on encompass.com soon, so if you can hold out a little longer, that should fix your problem right up.

The cables shown in these links are DW15 and DY520 but the one I have ordered from Encompass is FG541 and the bracket is FG540. I'll let you know how it works out but it's going to be a month from now.

I placed an order through encompass on August 18th, and the ship date was updated to September 18 a few days ago. I guess maybe they just order stock as required?

I placed my order on August 24th and the date shown was also September 18th but I think that is the date when they expect to receive a shipment. Then they will E-mail us when they ship the items to us.

Big surprise. The in-stock date for both the bracket and cable is now October 23rd. I suppose we could hope that it means the shipment for September 18th is now sold out and the date applies only to new orders.

 

Update: No such luck. My order has been updated to show October 23.

Another update: The bracket is in stock now and the cable should be in stock tomorrow (19th).

 

Another update: The dates have changed again so I'll not say anything more until the parts have actually been shipped to me.

The cable seems like it's never going to be in stock. However, I found this part on Aliexpress that i might try. It seems to state that it's compatible with our laptop. I'll update this thread if it works.

If the photo shown on the AliExpress website is of the actual cable, it looks too long but, at least that's better than being too short. The genuine Lenovo cable looks like this:5C10S29927 Appearance.jpg

 

Do they have the HDD bracket? My cable and bracket were ordered on August 24 so I phoned Encompass and they said they were about to ship them out. I am hoping for confirmation tomorrow.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
