Additional HDD tray? Not a 2nd drive caddy.

2009-03-01, 16:24 PM

Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for buying additional HDD trays for the T400. I'm not wanting to have a 2nd drive caddy I'm wanting to swap out the primary drive with a drive ready to slot in already in the required tray. I'm happy to be swapping the rubber edging used.

 

I've been using Google and found lots of references to the 2nd drive caddy, the only thing I have found so far is the screws :smileysurprised:

 

I'm reluctant to broaden the search and drop T400 as I'm not sure what other laptops use the same tray.

 

Anyone got any ideas, links or know what laptops use the same tray would really help?

 

Thank you in advance!

You could try here....

They may not be cheapeast supplier of drive bay caddies, but are probably the most straightforward in terms of identifying and ordering a suitable caddy.

Brilliant! Thank you for that Bill.

 

For those looking for the T400 here is the exact link on the site that Bill has detailed.

 

T400 Drive Caddy @ NewMode Electronics

 

Now that we have a site that sells the item we can see what other machines share the same type of caddy, if the sites information is correct then they include the following:

 

ThinkPad T60, T60p, T61
ThinkPad T400, T500, R400
ThinkPad W500, W700
ThinkPad X200, X200S
ThinkPad R60, R60e, R61
ThinkPad Z60m, Z60t, Z61e, Z61m, Z61p, Z61t
ThinkPad X60 Tablet (see below for more)
ThinkPad X60, X61, X60s, X61s models with 2.5" hard drives only.

 

So if you are still looking you could try searching using the above laptops and it should be the same caddy for your T400.
