Re: Replacing 3.5" harddisk with 2.5" SSD on my SAM460ex

There are two kinds of SSDs you can buy.

The first one I mentioned above has connectors for SATA data and power, ie., exactly the same as a regular hard drive. They are usually 2.5" form factor.

Because the interface is identical, they can be used on any Amiga with a SATA interface.

There's another kind of SSD you can buy. It plugs directly into the PCIE slot, ie, it doesn't use a regular SATA interface and power. It's much smaller, a "card" form factor.

The first kind is a drop-in replacement for a regular Hard Drive, so you can use it with any Amiga with a SATA interface.

The second kind uses a different interface, which I don't believe is compatible with Amiga.

Here's the wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-st ... tandard_card_form_factors
