Lenovo Z50-70 - Replacing optical drive with HDD



I have replaced the old HDD with SSD. And now I want to place the old HDD to a DVD drive. Would it work?


The optical drive is 9.0mm high, but couldn't find the fitting caddy. What caddy should I use? Any suggestions?

Hi there, Fosho –


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


The Z50-70 uses a 9.0mm ODD. You may be able to get away with a 9.5mm universal HDD caddy but it will be a tight fit.
