Replacing the Optical drive on Ideapad 510151SK with HDD caddy, need drive size -12mm or 9.5mm?

2017-07-19, 21:47 PM

Hello,

 

I'm going to be replacing my primary HDD (1tb) with a SSD and will place the HDD in a drive caddy, replacing the existing DVD drive. 

3rd party vendors list both 12mm and 9.5mm drive caddys for this - I imagine a newer laptop would have the smaller form factor, unfortunately this spec info is not available from the manual or Lenovo tech support - does anyone happen to know?

 

Might be best if I yank the drive and measure it or take it with me to buy a caddy in person, rather than order online.

 

Thanks for reading,

Paul

Per page 63 of the Lenovo ideapad 510-15ISK/ ideapad 510-15IKB Hardware Maintenance Manual item #4, your laptop uses one of 3 9.0mm optical drives (see below) so a 9.5mm caddy may not work.  

 

There are some 9.0mm universal versions like this one available, but I have not used them, so be sure to check with the seller for capatability before ordering.
