Reading SSD from Carbon X1 5th Gen

2019-06-20, 17:44 PM

My 5th Gen Carbon X1 won't charge at all. I don't know if it is a pproblem with the adaptor, or with the laptop, and am waiting for a replacement adaptor. In case the problem is with the laptop, I want to pull out the SSD, and read it with my other laptop. I want to use a Sabrent 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 3.0 Tool-Free External Hard Drive Enclosure to do so. However, looking at the pictures in the Lenovo manual, it seems like the 1tb SSD is much longer. I have two questions:

 

1. Will the SSD be able to plug in to the Sabrent so that I can access the information, at least on a temprary basis?

2. If the Carbon SSD is too long for this enclosure, does anyone know what kind of enclosure to use?

 

Thanks

 

Solved! See the solution

The X1CG5 used an m.2 SSD - either NVMe or SATA.

 

You'll need an adapter appropriate for the specific SSD in your machine.  If you can boot it check BIOS or Windows Device Manager for the SSD model.  If not, you/we may be able to determine what's installed by the laptop's MT-M (like 20HR000HUS as a randomly-chosen example).  Otherwise you'll have to open the laptop and take a look.

 

Here are a couple of links to adapters I've used:

 

SATA:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KQ4LNJC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

NVMe:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HCPCMKN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

It's one or the other.  AFAIK there is no adapter that works with both.

Thanks so much. I'm going to copy and save your response.

 

Unfortunately the machine is completely dead, and I won't know if it's the adaptor or the laptop that the problem is until the new adaptor arrives. 

 

By MT-M, do you mean model #? Mine is 20HRCTO1WW . Do you know if that has the SATA or the NVMe? It's a 1tb SSD.

Thanks, again.

That's the MT-M.  Unfortunately it does't help :(  The CTO (configure to order) machines had multple options so one can't tell much from the MT-M.

 

One other thing you could try: go to SUPPORT (above) and enter your serial number.  DO NOT POST IT HERE!  Then use the parts lookup feature to track down the specific parts list for your machine as shipped.  That might give the desired info.

I found the original order, and it said it was a PCIe-NVMe SSD, so that makes it the MyDigital product.

 

Thanks again.
