Lenovo T570 Trying to fit a M2 2242 SSD drive in the empty wwan slot

2021-09-08, 2:53 AM

I have read on posts here that the wwan slot that is empty in the t570 can accept a second hard drive.  I ordered a rocket nano NVMe PCIe M.2 2242 1tb SSD drive.  However it doesnt quite fit.  Am I doing something wrong, or did I order the wrong part.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a drive that will fit in that slot.  Im looking for atleast 500gb if not 1 TB

 

EDIT:  I think I know why, but want you all to confirm this, its because I need a SATA, when I watched this video : https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/videos/vid100767  it showed him put in a hard drive in the wwan slot.  I think its a sata

you need a SATA drive.  Any SATA 2242 drive should work

It is definitely a SATA only slot.
