It appears to have the compatibility with your model. Amazon is good about returning products if it doesn't, however. You can adjust the harddrive sectors of your new harddrive when you configure it for the first time after installing.

It is not a real "Lenovo" adapter, so there is no way to determine what it really is. It says it is compatible with T400 and also later models, but there are differences between the T400 adapters and those in later models. The later models' adapters will work in T400, but T400 adapters will not work in later models.

Not seeing the T400 listed as compatible for that link.

I do know the T400 is a 9.5mm height UltraBay, while everything listed in there is 12.7mm.

Also FWIW, the 9.5mm optical drive from my T400 is recognized in the 12.7mm bay of my W520.

Advanced Format will work fine as long as your Windows is up to date.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

T400 ? I have a T530 and the item is described as: "Ultrabay Enhanced II Module 2nd HDD pour Lenovo ThinkPad R400, R500, T420, T420i, T430, T510, T510i, T520, T530, W510, W520, W530, W700 12.7 mm SATA III adaptateur caddy - TheNatural2020"

 

I don't understand the answer...

Sorry.  T400 is the same as R400 and R500.  (They are all the same electrically in the ultrabay slot) Aftermarket adapters I have seen are ALL 9.5mm so they will fit into anything

Check this site for a hard drive caddy.

They make excellent equipment. I have one for my T540p and it blends perfectly.
They have a model specific to the T530.
