Is it possible to upgrade the HHD in my PC to an SSD and if so, how do I connect the SSD to the motherboard for cloning?

I have tried a USB/SSD connector and that didn't work. Also tried using a split SATA cable and the PC would not Boot up, did

not recognize an HD to boot from.

from what i see here, there seems to be only one sata port for the HDD, and for the dvd player..
it seems to me that it will not be possible to use that of the dvd?
So if not possible the only option is indeed to connect the SSD disk to usb...
but when you say it doesn't work..
can you manage to use the copy software, or you can't even do that?
when exactly do you have a problem?
Have you tried a windows installation, without having copied the HDD, so with a windows installation media directly?
