The Mini 9 only uses a mini-PATA 50mm PCI-e Solid State Drive. This is a unique drive for the Mini 9 & there aren't many of them left. Do a search for Mini 9 SSD's. I found a few on Google Shopping, sort of $$ though. Try eBay & Amazon as well, you might have some luck.

If it does not say that it will fit the Mini 9 or Vostro 90 then it probably will not work.

my difficulty is putting the SSD with the same input slot and size (equal to the naked eye) but he recognizes other brand!

Right - you can find SSDs that fit in the slot but that don't work in the Mini 9. These are usually SATA SSDs. lswartz is absolutely correct - if it doesn't say it's for the Mini 9, it won't work.

Two choices available now are RunCore 64GB Pro IV Light 50MM PCI-e SSD for Dell Mini 9 Vostro A90 | My Digital Discount and

The RunCore is the better quality SSD, the Kingspec is much cheaper. Kingspec has a 128GB model also available through Amazon.
