m.2 to usb adapter that works with m slotted and B+m slotted

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a m slotted m.2 installed in my pc.  I'm buying a larger m.2 to replace it however the new one is slotted M+B.  I'm pretty sure the new one will work on my MB but I can't find a USB adapter that will work for both.  Anyone know of a USB to M.2 that will work with M slotted and a M+B slotted m.2 drive?

SATA or PCIE M.2? They use different controllers and the USB adapters are different. 


If I don't respond, please tag me in your post. I'm probably AFK or responding to someone else. 

I know what sarcasm is... Sometimes.

There are no USB M.2 enclosures that support both. Your motherboard has the option to support both because of the extra space and proximity to all the wiring it would need to use either a SATA or NVMe drive. A USB enclosure needs different circuitry to support an NVMe drive than it does to support a SATA drive. You will need to choose between an NVMe enclosure or a SATA enclosure if you need a USB M.2 drive.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯
