I bought a cf-31 on an auction online, and i was looking around inside of it and i found a port which seems to look like either a wireless card or for a half size msata

it already has a wifi card, so i dont see why it would have 2 slots for wireless card

but i tried a big msata from my other computer even though it is too big, i held it in place while i turned it on, but it did not detect it

If you look closely there is a plastic area for a screw,

would a half size work? The big msata didn't work, so im guessing half size won't work?

Looks like msata. If the card isn't laying flat, the pins might not be making good contact inside the connector.

If you can find a manual for that computer, it might say what you need afa screws or other configuration.

Edit: also, check the bios, might need to enable it, and it may be an either/or between that and the 2.5" drive.
