Hello, welcome to Newegg!
Can I help you with an SSD?

Spencer J.
ok
or will I need to buy a sata to usb adapter?
Spencer J.
You would need a SATA to USB adapter
so my dual docking station will not work?
Spencer J.
Not unless you can connect it directly to the laptop
it is usb so i can do that. would that be better than removing the hard drive and placing both drives in the docking station?
Spencer J.
Yes, I would just do that then
i can do that, it is usb. is that better than putting both drives in the docking station?
Spencer J.
It would work either way, but it will be a lot easier to just put the new drive in the docking station and connect it with USB.
ok, that's what ill do. thank you.
Spencer J.
you're welcome. :-)
