I am having difficulty finding any compatible caddies? Has anyone succesfully added a drive caddy in place of PLDS DVD-RW DA8A5SH optical drive?

Hi. I bought from ebay : http://www.ebay.ca/itm/for-Lenovo-Flex-2-15-Swap-UJ8FB-DVD-2nd-SATA-Hard-Drive-SSD-HDD-HD-Caddy-Adap... , and it's working. I installed the hdd inside.

Did you need any sort of spacer or insert to secure the SSD/HDD fully or was it ok without it? did you use a 7mm drive or 9.5mm? thanks for the reply.

no. the caddy has some screws for the hdd. the laptop came with the 7 mm drive but you can put a 9.5 mm drive because the caddy is 12.5 mm like the dvd-rw.
