T430s 2nd Hard Drive Bay Caddy not working

Hi all,

 

I bought 2nd Hard Drive Bay Caddy for my T430s but it does not seem to work.

 

The HDDs I placed in it do not even start to spin, and they are not recognized by the laptop BIOS as also by my OSes, Windows and Linux.

 

The label on the caddy says it is P/N 26r9247, but at this stage I'm not sure is a compatible part or if I got just a faulty item.

 

Any feedback?

The adapter you need is 43N3412.  See http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-73170

 

That is what I use in our T430s.  Works great.

Can someone from Lenovo confirm or not the caddy with part number 26r9247 is not compatible with the t430s?

You can actually confirm it yourself.  See http://lenovoquickpick.com/

 

The adapter you have is for models serveral generations back.

That part number (26R9247) is for the older T60/61 Thinkpads.  You need the Ultrabay III adapter.  Look at 43N3412.
