You need the drives that are made for the ultrabay, though you probably could fix another drive to fit, but buying the standard one would be a lot easier.

Lenovo Ideapad Y500 | Intel® Core™ I7-3630M @2.4GHz | 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM | Nvidia® Geforce™ GT 750M | 120GB Mushkin Atlas Deluxe mSATA SSD | 1TB Samsung Spinpoint M8 5400RPM HDD | 1080p Lenovo Display | Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

hi SATX,


Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.


In addition to what Psyrecx have said, although most laptops will fit any slim ODD/BD drive as long as it's a 9.5mm in size, it's recommended that you get the original ODD/BD drive that is customize to work with the unit:


For the ODD:

Y500 Removable DVD Burner DB36


For the Blu-ray:

You need to request the ODD Bezel - Part #:: 90202344 or 90201989 and the Blu-ray drive - Part Number 25209259 on this website




Hope this helps
