W530 UltraBay Caddy

2013-01-23, 23:20 PM

Hi,

I have removed the DVD from the Ultra Bay & installed a 2nd Hard Drive for extra storage etc.

Every so often, & more often than not, it ejects itself. The only method to get it back is to close lid into standby mode & open again.

Sometimes it happens on resume from standby as well..?

 

Any ideas on what can be causing this? I had a W510 before & it did similar things. I have also spokne to someone else who had the same type of issues.

I think on the W510 (win7), it used to ask to be ejected, whereas on this W530 (win8) it ejects it on its own...

 

Maybe there is a setting to say never eject...?

It is an old issue I don't believe the root cause has ever been identified.  Search for "thinkpad ultrabay eject error" on google and you'll see what I mean.

 

I don't recall ever seeing a definitive solution.

Scott,

 

im having a different error than you but perhaps the the fix i tried for mine (that didnt work) will work for you.
