Board 771961 SATA Conversion

Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:52 pm

I'm just posting this picture here for someone, but I might as well make it public in case someone else needs it.

Here are the capacitors to remove and solder onto for SATA connection for My Passport PCB 2060-771961:

Be sure you solder in your wires to the pad closer to the main IC after you remove the capacitors. You may even want to keep the capacitors inline, but they can't still be connected on the left side going to the USB bridge. So you might opt to just lift it up on the one side, insulate under it, then solder to the other end.

Of course, one would solder on a male connector, not a plug.

I've seen it done both ways. Some guys rip one off another unnecessary hard drive PCB and use that as well. All a matter of personal preference. Personally, I prefer to just reprogram a SATA PCB. But, then, I guess I'm privileged to have them all just sitting here on a rack.

Or you can just read the ROM and program it to a 2060-771820 board. It might require a small purchase now, but if you're in this business you'll be using the board over and over and it'll save a ton of time.
