Adapter for 2017 MBP SSD

I have a dead 2017 13” MacBook Pro (Function Keys) and need to read the SSD that I’ve removed. Is there an adapter to access it elsewhere? I’ve done a little research and can’t find any info.

Thanks.

Sadly, NO case so far

I would contact OWC to see if they have something up their sleeves ;-}

Otherwise you’ll need another MacBook Pro Fn system to gain access to the files.

Hey, i want to post some of my experience that might relate to this thread or similar problems. However I cannot help with getting data of your drive without another computer.

I was experiencing boot-up issues with my 2017 Macbook Pro No-Touch Bar and went to a repair shop. I was told, that the boot issues (no boot drive detected, flashing question mark folder) had to do with a failing drive and/or motherboard and replacement will be expensive, since they are only allowed to reinstall genuine apple parts.

After some research I came across another thread (can’t seem to find it though) where someone recommended an adapter for a regular NVMe drive for this proprietary connector.

Or search for NVMe M.2 NGFF SSD for 2016 2017 13" MacBook Pro A1708 Adapter

I ordered one and it finally arrived. It looks exactly as shown on eBay, even with the two connected pin headers. I first thought this was a production error, but apparently not. It accepts regular 30 and 42 length NVMe drives with M or BM key. The screw mounts (green circle) on my adapter were a bit loose, so I just added a strip of yellow tape to the back to secure them in place.

To install it just open up your Macbook (You don’t actually need a suction cup, just press the back edge hard enough. It might be a bit tough the first time) and swap out the drives. You will need to remove some tape from the original drive to demount it. The macbook should have enough clearance to fit the new drive without any problems, however be careful when reinstalling everything.

Since this adapter is shipped from China it will take a few weeks. In the meantime I ordered a cheap external NVMe housing to already mirror the data from my faulty drive via Time Machine and just continue booting the laptop from there. I attached the case on the back of my laptop with some magnetic tape. This worked amazingly well considering performance for an external drive and also indicates that in fact only the original drive was damaged and the motherboard works fine.

After installing the adapter I can continue using the macbook, since my recent data already is on the NVMe drive. Performance is great and everything is recognized as it should.

I hope this helps anybody struggling with a defective drive. The process is fairly easy and should take no longer than an hour.

All the best!

nice! I am very interested in changing the default 128 gb SSD drive of my Macbook Pro 2017 function keys to one bigger. Can you tell us which drive and model do yo use to install in the adapter? thanks!

I am almost positive the answer is Yes!

can you give us an image of the type of SSD you have? (specifically the connectors on the drive)

if it is a standard SATA connector then there are many inexpensive adapters that can allow you to connect that drive up to another computer via USB

I was going to say: pretty sure he included the wrong MacBook Pro model, since for the one specified above the SSD is soldered to the board.

As I stated in the question, my SSD is from a 2017 MacBook Pro (Function Keys). As far I'm aware the SSD uses a proprietary Apple Gen. 5A PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe . I'm asking if anyone knows of an adapter?

von

Sorry, misread that. I'm not aware of any unfortunately.

B07F2S836J from Amazon might do it… or maybe B07J9WNN9H I haven’t personally tried either of these so YMMV try doing a search for USB and NVME…

Newegg has several like this one from Choetech

all that being said, if the adapter works and the computer recognizes the drive, this will only give you access to data if the system was not encrypted….

@xshawk - Ian sorry guy, neither of these cases will work. Apple uses their own custom connector on their SSD drives. Basically they are not M.2 drives!

Hi,

I have a MacBook Pro 2017 (Function keys) and I had an accident (water dropping) and the screen and connections are damaged. I couldn’t find affordable fixing, so right now is broken but the SSD works. 

I bought a Lenovo A340-24IWL and I’d like to know if is possible to put the SSD from my broken MacBook Pro on this Lenovo A340? Do you have some enclosure or adapter to use this SSD on a PC?

Thank you very much for your response!!!

I believe this is the drive Dominic is referring to:

It’s a Gen 5 referenced above, a proprietary SSD that has no adapters or enclosures that I can find.

Between Secure Boot, encryption and proprietary drives, Apple seems to be closing the door on data recovery. A drive or machine failure may well doom all data without a current backup.

Cody Henderson of Beetstech posted an outstanding guide to Apple SSDs that includes a number of Gen 5 drives at the bottom of his list:
