My old Asus Eee PC 1000 Linux netbook laptop finally kicked the bucket. It now frequently halts at random times, including immediately after pressing the power button. After some tests I concluded that it was likely the motherboard, and am now preparing to donate to a local enthusiast.
I would first like to gather the contents of its 8 GB, and 32 GB SSD. (I would then also format these two SSDs.)
From looking at the SSDs, I recognised their connectors as mini PCI-e. After some searching, I found a mini PCI-e to USB adapter; and bought this one. With the SSD in place, I insert the adapter to my USB socket, but then nothing happens. I've tried under Ubuntu, Windows XP and Chrome; all with no luck. I guess the adapter is not intended for this role, but now I have it, is there any possibility that there are perhaps drivers or their sourcecode to be found somewhere?
