I want to be able to access the data in my original MBA Samsung 128GB SSD Rev C.

Does anyone know who makes the ZIF to USB cable conversion?
Where I can i get one?

Thanx

You could use that enclosure:

Found via http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&q=ZIF+to+USB+cable&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

Could that work?

The Rev C uses a SATA LIF adapter not a ZIF (which is usually a PATA cable variant and was used with the Rev A MacBook Airs).

The Rev C uses a SATA LIF adapter not a ZIF (which is usually coupled with PATA).

ok, thanx for clarification, any idea where I can get the SATA LIF to USB adapter? Google search didn't reveal anything concrete.

I believe Runcore (runcore.com) includes an enclosure that did that with their SSD replacement drives; however, there was an issue with their original choice of SATA to USB chip that made it so the drive didn't show up. You might see what options are available from them. (NOTE: I have no first hand knowledge of their product, etc).

You need a LIF connection to USB. Runcore includes a cable, board, and enclosure to use your old drive.
