Thinkpad Edge 2nd Hard drive Caddy

2010-12-22, 9:18 AM

Hello Lenovo community,

 

Im completely floored as to why no one has even bothered to ask this question, even when i searched it on google.com.  Is it possible to have a second hard drive in a thinkpad edge 14 series by removing the optical DVD storage device with a HDD caddy? 

 

If so what type of hard drive caddy would i need, and if you could please link to it.

 

Much appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the forum!


The Slbook doesn't mention anything about SATA HDD Bay adapter, even the optical drive is not termed Ultrabay, I think it's suffice to say that such expandability option doesn't exists for Edge.


Hope this helps.

Actually out of pure curiosity, if anyone has a DVD drive in their thinkpad, can they please tell me the model of the thinkpad and the model number of the DVD drive.

 

Mine is a GT30N

just keep watching ebay.  there are drive adapters for nearly every thinkpad.  give it about a month or two and some outfit in china will be making one for your edge.  one of the ones being made now will probably work, it's just nobody plugged one in yet to see if it will work.

Thats exactly what i was thinking as well.  Ive interexchanged multiple hdd caddies in other laptops with different brands, but they all worked regardless and i saved more money with the cheaper caddies. 

 

But i just bought a thinkpad edge, and im loving it TBH, but I should have done a little more research about its capabilities in putting in a 2nd HDD.
