- Not compatible with M.2 NVMe or AHCI PCI-Express SSDs
Here’s an easy way to increase the speed, capacity and data security of your desktop computer or server. This four-drive M.2 SATA adapter and mounting bracket lets you add up to four M.2 solid-state drives in the same space as a single 3.5” SATA drive.
Maximize system speed and performance
The M.2 adapter increases overall storage potential by installing four M.2 NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) SSDs in a standard 3.5” drive bay. Utilize the full potential of your SATA III controller with an M.2 SSD, reducing data transfer bottlenecks and giving you file transfer rates of up to 6Gbps.
Create a powerful software RAID solution
Create a high-performance RAID solution using four M.2 SSDs with your RAID controller to increase the volume capacity of your drive array and add redundancy to protect your data against drive failure. You can combine all four drives together to appear as one, to store larger files such as digital media and access them at faster speeds.
Connect your M.2 drives with ease
The adapter ensures easy and versatile use. It is designed to support a wide range of M.2 NGFF SSDs, including 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110 drive sizes. It's also compatible with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® systems without having to install additional drivers or software.
The 35S24M2NGFF is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
- Enhance performance by converting up to four M.2 SSDs into a 3.5in form factor

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.
When you troubleshoot issues with a hard drive enclosure, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
- Hard drives
- Hard drive enclosure
To test your setup components, try the following:
- Use the cables, hard drives, and hard drive enclosure in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
- Use a different cable, hard drive, and hard drive enclosure in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test the hard drive and hard drive enclosure, it is recommended that you do the following:
- To check Disk Management, press the Windows key + R, type diskmgmt.msc, and press Enter. Check to see if your hard drive is listed.
- If the hard drive is listed with unallocated space, the hard drive needs to be reformatted. Right-click unallocated and click New Simple Volume. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reformatting.
Note: Formatting a hard drive erases all of the data on it. Make sure that you back up all of your data before you reformat the hard drive.
- If the hard drive is listed as healthy but does not have a drive letter, for example, C:, right-click healthy and click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Add, assign a drive letter, and click OK.
Note: A formatted hard drive will not show up in Computer or My Computer until it has a drive letter assigned to it.
