Just as update after trying different things. First the package had no instructions. If you place the drive in the case where as the drive Zif connector (which is really a Lif) is facing up and at the same time the Zif connector on the USB board is facing up (which is really a Zif connector), then it assumed that is correct oriention. In this orientation the connectors lline up for the straight cable that is sent. Unfortunately this is incorrect. I had to insert the very tight cable into the Lif connector on the drive with non contact side of the cable down toward the drive (tinned side up), then flip the drive in the case where as the connector on the drive is flipped opposite of the USB board, then plug the cable into the USB board connector contact side down toward that board. Now the drive and USB board connectors do not algn at can't be placed in the case. But the drive is seen.
I then got this note from RunCore:
Dear Valued Customer,
It has recently come to our attention that the zif cable in the HP mini
does not work with the new Runcore 1.8" Zif drives we recently shipped
to you. Today we are authorizing shipments of the correct cable to you
which you will receive in a few days, We are very sorry for this
inconvenience. Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
