I'm new to the forum and have just ordered the new W530. I'm planning on replacing the internal DVD drive with a hard drive and ordered the bay adapter along with the laptop. I'm wondering if anybody knows of a good way to make use of the internal DVD drive that is shipping with the unit.
I don't need a drive often and I'm thinking there may be enclosures or adapters that could make this useful to me when needed.
Thank you in advance.

I bought one from Ebay and it came with a USB adaptor cable ot make use of the DVDRW as an external.
Cost £15 including delivery from Malaysia. Build quality is great and fitted my W510 perfect.
I'm assuming it would fit the W530 also unless dimensions have changed drastically.

I would like to convert my T430s internal DVD to and external enclosure. Are the connectors the same for the ultrabay slim as for the standard W530? I looked on ebay but I was confused by the "Fit All 50-pin Laptop Drive". Is the Lenovo connector a 50 pin connector. I only see 13 pins on mine? Can anyone send me a link to a caddy that would fit my connector?
