Thinkpad E570 DVD slot HDD caddy

2017-10-01, 11:38 AM

Hi There!


I want to upgrade my laptop with an extra HDD. I have been trying to find a compatable HDD caddy for the cd slot. Unfortanatly the one I ordered was too high. I have been looking all over lenovo's website and documentation to find the dimension specifications for their optical drive slot, but have sadly not been able to find one. I have also not been able to find a HDD caddy that specifically list the thinkpad E570 in their supported models. Does anyone here know of a good HDD caddy that is compatable or know the optical drive height specifications?


Thanks in advance!

Hi Patrick,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


May be this one should work, as it is for ThinkPad E560 and DVD burner size is 9.0mm high. 


I hope the above information helped you.
