Installing sata ssd in Nsm evolution
« on: March 18, 2021, 12:53:05 PM »
Hi I have a Nsm evolution touchscreen jukebox, does anybody know if it is possible to exchange the ide hard drive to a Sata ssd drive
If I clone the ide drive over to ssd would it be a straight swop or would I have to change bios ?
I have a ide to sata adapter, has anyone done this before.
I installed a ssd in my laptop & it increased the speed of loading no end so I’m hoping it could do the same for the jukebox.

Hi newcomer

There's a tool that I use called Mini-tool partition wizard that I think may do the IDE to SSD conversion for you?, give it a try:- https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

Ps: Pub Jukebox supports Vertical screens:- https://jukeblaster.com/pubjukebox.html

thanks steve for the reply & info,
rather than leave the hard drive in the jukebox to clone
I was thinking about if I remove the drive from jukebox
& using my pc with an ide to sata connection adapter i:e
connect ide & ssd to adapter then usb connection to my laptop would this work, I have the Samsung magician software that worked on the laptop, i'll also download the one you suggested also. what do you think

Yeah, I think that would work, I've done stuff like that in the past and it worked for me  ;D

Got it done but it still takes the same time to load with ssd, also noted I can’t put any credits in, so needs further investigation.
