Title:

Dual hard drive data doubler

Text:

Hello,
 
I have a Mac Mini i5 late 2012. I bought from OWC their drive doubler.
 
I have a question when I disassembled the mini once the drive doubler arrived to remove the original hard disk (500 GB). I could not and realized that the HDD is already using the SATA Port. Instead I need fasten to the the SSD port, suddenly rubber pellets do not serve me.
 
If I place the SSD instead of HDD how then install the HDD? The SATA connectors are identical! I do not understand!?
 
Thank you
