Cannot find caddy to replace DVD drive on Ideapad 500

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ISK Laptop

Machine Type: 80NT00FTUS

 

I want to install a "Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD" and I decided to replace the DVD drive with a caddy which the SSD mounts in. However, I seem to be having a hard time finding one. Anyone have any suggestions or tips of where I can buy one or to look?

Hi NJoyal1994 and welcome to the community,

 

I havent seen any available on the market as yet. Personally I would make my own by using a DVD drive as a template and then gutting it out.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
