Exclamation switching acer aspire one ssd to 1.8" hdd. cables are different sizes!?


Hi, i could really use some advice. I have a broken ssd in my acer aspire one. I bought a Toshiba MK3006GAL 30 GB 1.8" iPod laptop HDD, and planned to make a switch. however, the zif or tif cables are different sizes. the ssd has a way smalled cable it looks like. I know nothing about switching these...i thought i could just plug it in and be ready to go. I also ordered a ZIF/LIF Ribbon Cable FFC for Toshiba 1.8"HDD Drive 56mm, i dont have it yet. Im hoping someone can tell me what to do, thanks alot!

Im looking at the pictures of the Toshiba drive. It looks like my drive doesnt exactly resemble the other drives. This drive http://cgi.ebay.com/TOSHIBA-MK3008GA...#ht_4194wt_934 has the port for the cable. Mine doesn't, and looks like this: http://www.google.com/products/catal...d=0CDgQ8gIwAg# so what do i do? return it? or is there some way i can fit a port onto the end. once again, thanks for your help
