yes that would be very helpfull because the new SSdrive I have will not fit even though is is the same size. I think I need some sort of an adaptor as you say.

For modern SATA SSDs, the typical form factor is 7.5mm. The standard for laptop HDDs is 9.5mm. You will need to buy a plastic spacer in order to properly mount the drive inside your computer.
