Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

Although M.2 SSDs come in similar form factors, only an M.2 SATA drive with an NGFF B key will operate with this device. M.2 drives that are PCIe or have a different key position are not compatible with this device.

This device can adapt an M.2 SATA drive to standard SATA connections, which is not possible for a PCIe based M.2 drive. The key type refers to the connector type on the M.2 SATA drive. B key can be M.2 PCIe x2 or SATA, so it is important that you check the specifications of the drive to see if it supports SATA.

How To

To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Click the Apple icon.
  2. Click About This Mac.
  3. Click More Info or System Report.
  4. Under the appropriate heading, confirm that your USB device is listed and that there isn't an error. For example, a network card would be under Ethernet Cards.

You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device.  To do so, press Command R with the System Information page open.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

Matt, Customer Support on 2019-10-22 3:46:54 PM
Our customer's experience with our products is incredibly important to us and we apologize that our SAT32M225 is not working with your Sabrent Rocket M.2 SSD. This adapter is only compatible with SATA-based M.2 SSDs and does not work with NVMe based SSDs which is why you're seeing issues fitting your drive into the adapter. Unfortunately at this time, we do not have an NVMe to SATA adapter but our M2E1BMU31C converts an NVMe SSD to USB. If you have any questions or require any assistance, please feel free to contact us at www.startech.com/support where our Technical Advisors are available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week to provide support.

Worked great to replace older 2.5" drive with SSD

By: RMilk - 09-16-2020
Bought one of these to use a WD SA500 M.2 SATA SSD. Worked flawlessly in MacOS and Windows 10. Nearly 600 MB/s throughput, which matches peak spec from WD. Simple to install, slim-line 7mm tall 2.5" frame gives drop-in replacement. Note - it does NOT work for M.2 NVMe/PCIe! Be sure to look at the pictures where it shows you the M.2 keying that it supports!
