Ideapad 310 with dummy bracket - possible to install an optical drive or ssd caddy?

Model: 80TV01CKMX

The laptop has a dummy bracket.

Can this be removed and install anything useful like an optical drive or a SSD?

Hi LinusEmiritus ,

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 


I checked your  machine number from the parts look up page , verified that this was opted out for the DVD drive .
Reason for just having a dummy bay instead, that you can  fit in 9.0 mm  DVD drive or maybe a caddy for a harddrive too. 

 

Recommended OEM optical drive listed at page 97 item 12 of the hardware manual.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Thanks Spidey1,

Can I look up myself?

What's the name of the compatible optical drive (model name)? Need to buy it in the EU.

Regards

Plastic bracket has to be included since I'm not replacing a defective unit

Re: Ideapad 310 with dummy bracket - possible to install an optical drive or ssd caddy?

Hi again and thanks for helping.

When I look up the machine on this link there are no optical drive on the list.

I've just removed the plastic bracket and looked inside the bay. It has two SATA ports.

By searching on the medion site for part number "5DX0J46488" I can buy the drive from Lenovo for 60 Euro.

 

Can this drive be purchased for less (outside the EU) like under 10 €/12$ because that is the limit for goods entering without paying import tax?

Is there drivers for my machine for the 5DX0J46488 part?

 

Thanks and regards

Hi LinusEmiritus , 

 

I don't think you are limited with an OEM CD/DVD drive and it does not have specific OEM drivers needed too. Most likely any generic slim tray with same size would work and you can even try a spare on it too.

If thickness is 9 mm it should work?

9,5mm won't work?

Lenovo guy replace the ODD

 

The non-Lenovo 9 or 9.5 mm drives does not come with the bracket and bezel he unscrews at 2:06 in the YouTube video. Do you have a part number for just those two items?

 

I'm considering getting a Blu-ray reader at least or just the dvd rewriteable dependant of how much each costs.

 

Thanks for replies Man Happy
