Can i run a second hard disk in an R50E using an ultrabay caddy ?

Hi!  I have been looking for a second hard disk caddy suitable for the R50E and have found an advert for one which says it is compatible with the R50E and i have also seen info to the contrary that says it can't be done. 
 
has anyone tried this with an R50E and got it to work ?
 
i am not fussed if i cannot do a hot swap.
 
Regards,
 
Andy.

you would need the ultrabay enhanced caddy not the ultrabay slim caddy which is for the T series... but other than that i don't see why it shouldn't work....

if you live in Melbourne there is a specialised second hand Thinkpad dealer you probably could try and see before you buy it..
