iMac won't recognize SATA SSD (already have Blade SSD)

Hey there,

I bought a 21.5" 2017 iMac with a blade SSD. I wanted to add a SATA 2.5" SSD to the computer (so two drives, total), and so I did, but the computer isn't recognizing it. I have a feeling I bought SATA data/power cables that are incompatible (it didn't come with any). Does anyone know what type of data/SATA cable I should be using?

Is this a good question?

I want to add a SATA SSD to my iMac 2017 21.5. Is the rubber bumper for the hard drive already in there? If not where did you get it? Thanks!

It should be standard SATA cables, nothing special going on AFAIK.
