Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

I bought a similar caddy and Crucial SSD and tried inserting into ultrabay as it came and no click into slot and no registering on the device manager.  So is this saying I have to strip the plastic case off my stock DVD/RW and place it on the caddy for it to work?

So i found the SSD under device manager disk drives but it won't show up under My Computer nor will it let me do anything to it.

Did you go into disk management and initialize the new SSD?

Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

HI all,

I have the opposite question: my y510p is already provided with an internal SSD hard disk and an optical drive in the ultrabay slot: can I replace the optical drive with an HDD from a previous laptop?

Can I install an M.2 SSD ? I haven't opened my Y510p since I bought it 2 years ago. lol 
I was hoping of installing an M.2 since I'll be using that to store certain games and keep the 5400 rpm HDD as a boot drive.
