    Hi, in advance thank you for the help. I have recently bought a Samsung EVO 250gb SSD to align with my Hardrive, now to install it i also bought a Dynamode drive Bay which acts as an adaptor to install my 2.5" SSD. The problem i have encountered is that im not sure how to actually install the bracket into my PC, i tried sliding it in but the bracket looks a little too small for the hardrive bay and it doesn't seem to fit. I don't know if i am meant to just hover it into the bay and screw some screws in to keep it in place but that just doesn't seem practical or safe. furthermore, my PC case has built in SATA and power slots already placed and if i try plug the SSD into the area, the card is too central meaning it doesn't align in the correct manner. I am in a big problem here as i spent a lot of money i don't have. If you require pictures to assist please dont hesitate to ask

    Hi faysa1999, and welcome to TSG.

    I may not have a solution, but it would probably help someone here to help you if we know the brand and full model number of the computer or the brand and model number of the case if it is a custom build.

    EDIT:

    If you are trying to fit a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" bay, does it look like this adapter would align with the connectors in the bay?
