Samsung PCIe SSD Hard Drive (Model #mz-jpu256t/0a6) External Drive Enclosure...

I have a client with a mid-2014 13" MacBook Pro Retina. She spilled soda on the MacBook and it doesn't turn on any more. Sadly, she doesn't have insurance to cover this type of accident. She has purchased a new MacBook Pro. We would like to recover the data from the Samsung PCIe SSD Hard Drive (Model #mz-jpu256t/0a6) but I haven't been able to find any external drive enclosures for this type of hard drive. Any suggestions?

There are cheaper ones.

Unfortunately, you also have to find the one of three connector models that will work with your particular Mac mSATA PCIe card.  You should call to make sure you get the right one.

Here's one that accepts 2 types of connectors, but the reviews mention that some fiddling is still required.

You should find your model number to narrow it down.  Here's one for models A1398 and A1425.

@strung and @serialband - I truly appreciate your responses. I have searched my fingers to the bone looking for the right adapter, including the ones you referenced, but haven't had any luck. This is crazy that no adapters are readily available.

The ones we linked are no good?

I suppose you could always put the drive into the new MBP or another MBP and copy everything out to an external or network drive.
YortAuthor Commented:
They do not have the correct interface. The interface my PCIe SSD drive has two equally sized connectors, where as the external caddies listed show two different sized connectors.
YortAuthor Commented:
@strung...that is my thought, however, I don't immediate access to another like MBP. I have an appointment with the Apple (not so) Genius bar next Monday to see if they can help with a reader.

Everyone, I want to thank you so much for your assistance in trying to resolve my issue. I went to the Apple store yesterday and learned that the specific SSD drive for my clients iMac was only used in two production runs of the MacBook Pro and no external caddy was ever made for it. Gotta love Apple. Ugh.
