Title: Electrical connector assembly

Abstract: An electrical connector assembly includes a first connector (1), a guiding spacer (12) and a second connector (2). The first connector has a first housing (10) receiving two rows of first contacts (14) therein. A pair of guiding posts (106) is formed on opposite ends of a top wall (105) of the first housing for fitting into grooves (32) defined in a mating media storage device (3). The spacer includes a rectangular top wall (121) and four side walls (123) defining a chamber (120) therebetween for accommodating the second connector therein. Each first contact engages with a second contact (22) of the second connector, the second contact being soldered to a printed circuit board (4) of an electronic device. A supporting wall (124) projects upwardly from a longitudinal side of the rectangular top wall for abutting against a rear end of the top wall of the first housing.
