adding another hard disk on lenovo G50-45 need caddy configuration size

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 

 

but i see many people complain that the caddy not match the dvd rom size

 

i see dvd rom is Internal 9.0 mm (Rambo) and the caddy 9.5 mm

 

so is there is caddy 9mm or all are 9.5 mm also i need recomandation for change dvd internal to extral 

does only need sata usb converter without power or must extranal power for that

 

is there is try or caddy to convert internal dvd to extranal

Re: adding another hard disk on lenovo G50-45 need caddy configuration size

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.
