Re: Lenovo G500 Sata III slot

Hi David_Bodo,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

G500 only offers one SATA III slot for storage.

No other slot is available to add additional storage.

 

It may also be possible to to use a harddrive caddy to replace current DVD drive as discussed here and here.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G500 Sata III slot

Thank you for your reply.

 

I did it with Candy Case. But profile is Sata II in CD Rom.

 

So disk is Sata III and Cdrom to Candy slot gives Sata II.

 

Speed is less.

 

Is there any methond to use Sata III slot?

Hi David_Bodo,

 

It is a mechanical architecture.

ODD interface only offers SATA II.

 

If you try to check the speed difference, I don't think it would that much comparing the speed SSD can provide. You can maximize your SSD on the SATA III slot for your frequently used programs and reserve the HDD in the caddy for least used data.
