The hard drive bay adapter III doesn't properly fit a W510

2010-11-25, 18:41 PM

Hello,

 

I have a W510 laptop and have purchased the Thinkpad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III kit (43N3412), but it doesn't properly fit the W510.  The adapter is too short - there is about a 3/16" gap above the kit and the top of the slot.  As a result, the adapter can move around in the slot a bit, and I frequently find Windows saying that I can dismount the drive, and that the drive has been removed from my device list.  I have to reboot to bring it back.  This is extremely annoying.  There has to be a better kit that fits this laptop and doesn't move around.  Is there another part number I should exchange this with?

 

Thanks,

Shan

No. But you can find some 3rd-party product for this.

Any hint as to which third party product I can use?  Frankly, I expected better engineering from Lenovo...

 

Thanks,
