T43 2nd Hard Drive Bay Caddy not working

I installed a generic ultra bay caddy and the new drive isn't recognized.
It works fine in an external enclosure.
Any suggestions?

Sounds like you should probably get a genuine part, or perhaps you got a defective generic, of the drive isn't fully engaged in the plug. Can you tell if the bios regognizes the drive as being there? 

 

Also, is this an IDE or SATA adapter?

Hello,

 

Do other Ultrabay caddies work in the T43 or does this one work in other ThinkPads?

The caddies for a T60/61 (also R and Z series) will work if you remove a plastic tab that prevents them from being inserted in a T4x or R5x series. The faceplate looks slightly different but it's not objectionable looking when installed.
