Yoga 300 where is the 32GB SSD?

Hi there,

 

I want to change the original 32GB SSD with a much bigger one. But where is the SSD? I see the HD-"slot" but there is nothing. No SSD.

 

Thanks for helping hands

 

kind regards

 

Horst

I have a similar issue and am unable to locate the 16GB ssd associated with my hard drive. Where is it? The seller assure me I do have a hybrid drive but ist does not show on the hard drive properties or control panel

What model laptop do you have?

 

If it's an actual hybrid drive the cache SSD is part of the HDD.  It's managed by the HDDs internal firmware and is not externally visible.

Re: Yoga 300 where is the 32GB SSD?

Hello both,

 

It would also help to have the MT-M of each machine (10 numerals and letters) to try to track down the exact specifications.

 

schwutke  I suspect you have a hybrid drive as suggested above where the SSD is incorporated in the drive.

 

Galdanaboy  my guess (and it's just a guess at this point) is that your model has an eMMC drive that's soldered to the mainboard.

Re: Yoga 300 where is the 32GB SSD?

Hola Zoltanthegypsy,
Thanks for that weekend-work Smiley Happy with your answer
Here i the number: MTM: 80M00061GE
if you are right, I can properly litter that YOGO, because with just 32GB of "HDD" I have no chande to do any Update and of course No chance for an Upgrade to Win-10 Smiley Sad((
There is (for me) still the question open, where can I get that connection-cable from a HDD/SSD to the slot? Waiting for an answer from the german "Support" since last week for that and other questions so far. Maybe better I buy that (WHERE???) in the US?

Hola Zoltanthegypsy,

forgot to thank you for the handbook link. I've had that before but could not find out, about the possible eMMC. Maybe a translation problem Smiley Wink

Re: Yoga 300 where is the 32GB SSD?

hi all,

 

can you confirm me that i can have both drives in the thinkpad, or rather emmc 32Gb drive and 2.5" drive,

 

since slot in the notebook is an addon to improve archiving space?

 

is there a compatibility problem with mechanic HDD, considering that i've an 7200 rpm HD 2,5", and i want

 

insert it in?

 

thanks a lot for the answer: it's important for me, 'cause i'll buy it only if it's possible.

 

see you soon,

 

carlo. Smiley Happy
