how to upgrade laptop 2000 series to SATA III

You are asking a question that does not need an answer. The drive currently in your laptop as shown by the pictures you posted is running in SATA 2 mode. That is either because the drive itself is SATA 2 or because the motherboard only supports SATA 2. Either way, buy what you want. SATA 2 SSDs are very old now and most anything you buy that is current product will be SATA-3. Install it in your laptop. It may be forced to run as a SATA-2 device but will still be very very fast. SATA is all interoperational. You can put a SATA-3 device on a SATA-I port and it will work at the highest speed supported by the port/motherboard.

 

Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

You do not want to replace the DVD drive with an SSD. Put the SSD inside the laptop and put a hard drive in the DVD slot with an adapter. The DVD SATA port might even be SATA-I and the SSD in a DVD adapter would not be bootable so the cost is wasted. 

 

Yes putting a SATA-3 SSD on a SATA-2 port is worth it. Still way way faster than a hard drive.

you mean that i should put SATA 3 SSD in place of HDD inside the laptop and put the HDD in place of dvd drive.so in this way the sata 2 slot of HDD will be available for SATA 3 SSD and dvd drive slot for HDD may be slow speed for hdd.

m i right sir ??
