2017-08-08, 15:14 PM

i got SSd hard and replace it in place of the existing one HDD 

and i found that i need the HDD also in the laptop so i will get caddy and replace it in the space of the DVD rom 

and make the dvd as extrnal dvd use it when i need

I would opt for using the old HDD as a USB external drive. Most "caddy" options do not work correctly in the Optical Drive Bay, there are quite a few threads that have extensive postings on problems with them.

A USB hard drive external case is a cheaper option, one that will work with any USB enabled computer. This would allow for quick transport of files between computers and notebooks / tablets.

Good luck.

This form factor should work.
