    Looking to convert my SSD to Toshiba 1.8" HDD, but consequently destroyed my ribbon...

    Does anyone know if places like Fry's sell the ribbon I need? I live in the bay area...
    Otherwise, my One will be down for few days until I get my order from the Chinese ebay seller.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Just search eBay. Make sure you don't need a crossover/flip cable (contacts on opposite sides) before you order.

    A flip cable will not be required for a Toshiba HDD. You just need a cable with a thinner end for the HDD. Blue backing tape at the mobo end and white backing tape at the HDD end.
