I have an Acer E5 772g 57Q7 notebook. It does not have an optical device, but it has a black blank installed. The lettering on the blank was this: TS:442.04X0B.0001#1REV:AO1.15.08.26.NBJT130322#1 Is there an option to switch this out with an optical drive hdd caddy, and if so, where could I find one?

I picked up an Aspire E 15 a month or so ago, and I was surprised to find it's far less user-servicable than my past Acer computers have been (Aspire One D250 and an Aspire 5750Z)-- but even though I'm not quite bold enough to try and tinker with the battery, RAM, or hard drive, installing a DVD+/-RW seemed easy enough, until... I tried to do it. It takes a 9.5mm height (ULTRA-SLIM laptop drive) tray-loading SATA, and I had an HP/LG GSA-U20N on hand, BUT: when I insert the drive to test it in the laptop, the drive isn't powering up (this may be a problem with the drive, but I'm not sure if there's some obvious step I'm missing? Funkiness with drivers? Something as simple as a reboot?*) [*Addtl. context: I am new to Windows 8. This might be extremely obvious, but, yeah, I'm not even sure where to look for this kind of thing vs. Win7 and WinXP systems.]the dummy drive cover that the laptop comes with looks like there's a bracket an actual optical drive would need to remain screwed in place-- and there's only one screw, so without this bracket, you're... screwed. I know there's eBay sellers etc. who sell these sort of things for ~$5, but the one I bought was slightly off in terms of height/depth placement. Is there a direct source for this part and/or another Acer model that uses the same bracket form factor so I know what to look for?likewise, this laptop needs sort of a funny optical drive bezel that wraps around the front of the drive and hooks under it, sort of tap...

Hi,  I'm looking to replace the optical drive in my Acer Aspire 7560 series laptop.  The original drive is a Phillips Model : DS-8A5SH17C. I tried Google, but was only able to find a couple that were used.  I'd prefer to have one that is brand new, though I'm not sure how likely that would be considering they were manufactured so long ago.  I'm also looking for a back cover that would allow me to utilize the second hard drive bay found inside my laptop, since it's not possible to close with the original back cover once a second drive is in place.   Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, my first post here but I've been reading a lot on this forum and always found the solution to my problems. Except now, I can't find any post related to my problem:

I've been improving my girlfriend's Acer Aspire 5750G (i7-2630QM - 8GB RAM (upgraded from 4GB) -NVIDIA GeForce GT540M - HD: WD6400BVPT @5400rpm) and I wanted to install a Kingston SV100S2/256G (version: SSDNow V100) with Win7 Home Premium on the SSD of course.
Roadmap to my problem:


The SSD doesn't fit in the normal HDD bay: There are 2 plastic pins above the SATA connector so the SSD doesn't fit in there (the SATA connector of a normal 2,5" HDD isn't covered by the casing like the SSD). I found someone on the webs who just broke these pins off but I don't want to lose the warranty on the laptop... yet.


Solution 1: I bought an optical HDD Caddy for the SSD so I could reinstall Windows with the Acer erecovery program which gave me the next problem: The stupid program doesn't let me choose where to install Win7!


Solution 2: I downloaded all drivers seperatly from the Acer site and installed a second Win7 (from a USB stick) on the SSD. Next problem: I tried to install the 100MB partition with the bootmgr on the SSD but that didn't work when I only booted from the SSD without the normal HDD in it. I realised then that the BIOS didn't recognize the SSD in the optical bay. The BIOS only 'sees' the WD HDD.

Answer:Bios Acer 5750G doens't recognize SSD in Optical bay caddy

I also posted this message on the microsoft technet forum... This is what I found out in the meantime (some thing I repeated because the next text is a combination of 2 answers to 2 replies on the technet forum).

I already updated the BIOS to the last version (1.20). In the 75750G's BIOS the AHCI controller is already enabled (only SATA-ports on this laptop, no IDE). In the BIOS menu the SSD doesn't show anywhere. It should be on the ATAPI CD-ROM but nothing to see there. If I change the boot priority to the ATAPI CD-ROM, it doesn't work (with or whitout the WD HDD in it). It didn't even work when the bootmanager was still on the SSD.

I guess the only option I have is to wait until my warranty is over (october 2013) and then try the SSD in the normal HDD bay or hope that eventually Acer releases a BIOS update that will recognize the SSD.I asked Acer if they could help me with the BIOS problem so I'll see if they can help me out in any way... I'll let you know.

I know the problem is not in Windows. It's just that I have a strange system built up now. I just wanted to be able to boot from the SSD without having the bootmanager on the normal HDD and change the SSD drive letter to C:\.

I tried this now:
A different SSD and a normal HDD in the optical bay caddy: nothing recognized in the BIOS. I also tried the optical bay caddy in my Sony Vaio and no HDD to see there either.

So the only conclusion is that the BIOS isn't programmed to look for a HDD in the optical... Read more

I have an Edge 14. Intel i3 M370 model.  I ordered a OBHC and installed a 160 Gb SATA drive, loaded with WIN 7.  In the main drive bay I have an Ubuntu OS setup.Trying to set up a dual boot configuration.  But, when I boot the drive and enter the BIOS set up, the drive in the caddy doesn't show.  If I let it boot from the main drive, Ubuntu starts up. If I put the Ubuntu drive in the caddy and nothing in the main bay, "NO OPERATING SYSTEM." When I look at the computer in Ubuntu, the OS7 drive is there.  All three partitions (Lenovo, OS and startup).  I can mount them, etc.  When I use Disk Utility in Ubuntu, the drive shows up listed under the SATA controller and is located at position 2 of the SATA bus.   I updated the BIOS and it is now 1.26. Still no sign of the HDD in the caddy.  Very odd.  When I power up the computer, the LED in the caddy does light up. When I run sudo update-grub in Ubuntu, the WIN 7 loader shows up in the list.  So a bootable OS is seen.  But if I select WIN 7 loader in the GRUB list at boot, I get a "no such drive" message, and am lead back the the GRUB list. In the BIOS, the config menu, the startup list only includes HDD0.   Is there some secret BIOS trick I need to play?  Correct me if I'm wrong, but there aren't any jumper settings, etc. on a SATA drive, right?  Nothing there to change. Any suggestions would be very much appreci...

Greetings, I ordered a 9.5mm "Universal" drive caddy from Amazon which stated compatibility with the V5-571, but it's terribly tight trying to get it to fit and even though I push it until it feels like it's seated in the SATA port, the screw holes under the keyboard don't line up and I can't get Windows 7 to recognize the 1TB 7200rpm NTFS-formatted drive, even though I've verified that the drive can be recognized on another Win7 system. I'm concerned about the mis-fit and wondered if anyone here has had success in installing a caddy in the optical bay? If so, I would love to know if there is a measurement or other specification I need to look for, or better yet, a link to where I might find one. Many thanks.

Answer:2nd HDD caddy replacing optical drive for HP Pavilion 15-ab5...

From the Manual: Optical drive Fixed, serial ATA, 9.5-mm tray load You seem to know what you want to do but let me just toss out a couple things you may not have considered. The optical drive port is a lower speed SATA than the hard drive port. So if you put an SSD in there it will be running slower than it can. Also it is not bootable so you would be using an SSD just for storage. You may want to consider just putting a bigger and less expensive mechanical hard drive in there for storage.  The laptop has ports for 2.5 inch SATA hard drives and a SATA-type M.2 disk so you can add a solid state drive that will work way better, just not in the optical bay.  Service Manual Post back if you need any more help.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello everyone! I am planning to add a SSD to my HP Pavilion 15-p263nl Notebook PC. I found on some sites that I can remove the optical drive and put a second drive using a caddy adapter into the optical drive bay. I found that some people on the forum have done it successfully, but nothing about my PC model. I want to know if it could work with my product. In other words, there is my plan:1-Remove the actual HDD from the hard drive bay and replace it with the new SSD.2-Remove the optical drive and replace it with the caddy adapter containing my old HDD.3-Do a clean install of Windows 10 on the SSD, using a USB recovery flash drive made with my actual Windows 10 system (which was updated from Windows 8.1 by July 2016). I already have a 120 GB SSD drive from OCZ (OCZ Vertex 3). I have some questions before buying the adapter:1- Will the two drives (my old HDD and the new SSD) be recognized by the motherboard / BIOS and the operating system (Windows 10)? Is there a limit of one unique HDD/SSD drive on the computer?2- which dimensions does the adapter have to be?

If I start my laptop and then slide the caddy into the optical bay my os picks it up immediately. If I restart the computer the drive is gone.

I checked the Device Manager and Disk Management, but it is not visible anywhere like it is on my HP Laptop. Any and all help and suggestions will be appreciated!I desperately need this to work!Please Help!

I just bought I used Portege M750 because my M700 was broken. Unfortunately, the select bays between both models are not compatible. Although the availability of a 2nd hdd caddy is mentioned in the users manual, I couldn't find the part no of the HDD caddy for the M750. I tried a standard SATA-SATA HDD caddy, but I get an "select bay error" message on startup, although the caddy works in windows as long as you don't hibernate.

Does anyone know the part no of the genuine 2nd hdd caddy for Portege M750 / M780? Or is there another 2nd hdd caddy which does work with the M750 without any restrictions?

Answer:Portege M750 - 2nd HDD caddy in select bay instead of optical drive

Hi

I assume you will need an Hard drive caddy part number: P000452980
Then you could place this into the Toshiba's Ultra Slim HDD Adaptor PA3408U-1ETC and PA3408U-2ETC

But you can also contact the Toshiba ASP in your country to get an confirmation...

I wish to move my ssd with Win 7 installed to an internal caddy fitted in an optical drive space.
I am using the same data cable, and the bay is powered.
On bootup Windows is not recognising the drive.
I tried using my installation disc to reinstall in the new location, but again the drive is not recognised.
Take it out of the caddy and it works fine.
Partition Magic recognises the drive when in the caddy.
ssd is Samsung evo 850
Any suggestions appreciated
My Win7 is an upgrade version from XP so I beleive I can't use Sysprep.

Hi Everyone, My issue is the following: I replaced my optical drive, and insert an additional HDD to my ThinkPad T440p computer using and ODD caddy ICY-BOX AC640. However, the replaced unit seems to blink the activity led for a short time (~1 sec) only when powering on and powering off the machine, and is not detected neither in the BIOS or by the OS.Additionally, the most recent BIOS version (GLET81WW (2.35 )) has only limited settings available compared to the previous versions, so that options regarding the handling of disks is unavailable.I run LinuxMint 17.2. Any hints/helps regarding the topic is welcome.Regards,Marton 

Answer:T440p Replacing optical drive with ODD caddy 9.5mm - not working

Hi,I'm having the same problem with the B50-80. I replaced the original HD with an SSD and it worked fine. But when I insert the second HD in the optical bay with the proper caddy neighter the BIOS nor Windows recognize the hd. The only application that reads the hd is Device Manager that detects an unknown device with the right name of the hd (toshiba). I am running Windows 10 and the 3.0 bios version. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks

I want to replace optical drive with SSD, now I am not sure if its better to replace Optical drive with SSD ot to replace HDD with SSD and Optical drive with HDD. Dont know the difference. Then I want to do clean install of WIn10 on SSD. I bought 128 gb SunDisk SSD. I wanted to buy caddy with these specs:2.5" SATA III HDD/SDD caddy 9.5mm   Size: 125mm*125mm*9.5mm Both SSD and HDD if I checked correctly are 2.5' and SATA. What I dont know is Optical drive SATA aswell. What I am asking if someone can confirm that it will fit and witch option is better (above).And is there any other parameter that I should check out before ordering caddy? Thanks in andvance.

Answer:SSD caddy replacing optical drive for HP Pavilion 15-au003nm

Here are some things to consider about an optical drive caddy. 1. A drive placed in there will run slower than a drive placed in the main SATA bay. 2. A drive in an optical bay adapter/caddy will not be bootable so will not be able to hold the OS.  So, what you want to do is take that SSD and place it where the hard drive currently is located and then place the old hard drive in the optical caddy. You can still access data on the optical bay drive and transfer is fast enough for video streaming and music but will not be optimal for things like video editing. Just pure raw storage, really. Here is the Service Manual: Manual Hard drive access is on page 32 and optical drive removal is on page 27. The optical drive is 9mm, not 9.5mm and we have had some people report trying to use a 9.5mm bay adapter will not work as it is just a hair too thick to fit inside the laptop. You might find that a 9.5 mm drive adapter will fit, but I cannot guarantee it. It only uses 7mm hard drives but if you happen to have a 9.5 mm form factor hard drive you can (carefully) see if it will fit in the optical bay slot.  Your laptop does have an M.2 mSSD ("gumstick") hard drive slot which would have been a better choice for upgrade. If you can return the 128 gig SSD might not be a bad idea. It only uses the SATA type 2280 M.2 disks with the B + M keys.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I've gone through several of these caddys.

My laptop (a Lenovo G500) continually has the same problem; it refuses to recognize the HD I connect to it using an Optical Bay Caddy I purchased on eBay (I've tried several, it does this with all of them). The first time I connected it it saw the Hard Drive and worked perfectly. I rebooted and it hasn't shown up in the BIOS's Boot Screen or anywhere else since.

Here are some pictures of the caddy itself: https://imgur.com/a/qEXbq#0

I recently upgraded the HDD in my Aspire E5-551 to SSD to speed up the system.  So far, it works like a charm.  Bootup is crisp and quick and the system is running smoother than ever.  I would like to use the original HDD as a storage drive and I would like to mount it in the (currently empty) ODD bay using a standard caddy unit.  I purchased two different HDD caddies and both show the same problem.  The unit installs just fine and indicates that it is powered, but the second drive does not show up in This PC or in Disk Management.  I have no doubt that I likely missed a step or two in the install, so I'm curious if anyone has been able to do this with their systems and if anyone was able to find the workaround so the drive can be accessed.  Any info would be helpful.  Thanks.For the record, my unit is now Windows 10 with the most recent BIOS update (ver 1.12).

We purchased this unit with the plan to add a second optical drive. The tech support says that it is impossible to do so with this unit.This is odd because the case clearly has a slot for the second optical drive. From my own observation, I believe I would need:1) a proprietary thin optical drive.2) a data cable that would access both optical drives (the current cable is for a single unit)3) an adapter to connect the power to the drive.4) a plastic bezel for the tray that corresponds to the ATC-780 case. Very few desktops allow for two drives. This one gave the physical appearance that it would. I could use an external drive, but I would rather have it as a part of the hardware. Is this an impossible request? Is it a cost prohibitive request?

I have an Aspire E5-551 that I recently upgraded.  I replaced the stock hard drive with a Crucial SSD and maxed out the onboard RAM (came with 6gb, now has 16gb).  The system is blazing fast now.  Right now, I'm using the original HDD in an external USB enclosure for storage.  I wanted to look into the feasibility of putting the storage HDD onboard by means of a caddy that fits into the side bay that would otherwise fit the optical drive.  I have been able to find all kinds of options for the parts for this, but I wanted to check with the folks on this forum to see if anyone has ad any experiences with this idea and how well it works.  Any info anyone can pass along would be helpful.  Thanks.

Hello. I'm another person who bought an Acer laptop without an optical drive and would like to add one. Do all of the E5-575G notebooks have the same mother board? In looking through the forums, I see that some laptops with similar but not exactly the same model # have a SATA connector for adding an optical drive. When I remove the dummy bracket on my laptop, I also see the connectors but I cannot tell if they are in the same location as in the photo that was been posted for the other requests. If they all have the same mother board then I would assume that the connectors are in the same location and I can just buy the part #s mentioned in the other posts (33.MLQN7.001, 86.GDEN7.001, 42.GDZN7.001, etc). Thanks for your help in this matter. Ted Saliers

In my case I used a dremel tool on caddy and carved it out for a 2.5" 2tb hard drive with a SATA to micro SATA connector ribbon connector which works very well then just a external USB DVD burner drive for when needed.

I recently installed a second SSD in the optical bay of my DV6-7300. I am getting terrible performance from the drive.  When copying a 5GB file from my main SSD to the optical bay SSD, it starts at a reasonable speed but then quickly drop down to a crawl (going between 5MB/s and 20MB/s) as you can see below:   The strange thing is running a CrystalDiskMark benchmark, it gives better (although not amazing) results:  Is this a limitation of my laptop's SSD controller, or is there some change of configuration that will improve performance? 

Answer:Very slow SSD performance in optical caddy (DV6-7300)

For quite a while I have been advising people not to put an SSD in an otical drive caddy. Why? Because the SATA interface for an optical drive does not need to be anything faster than SATA-I so that is generally what you find. A hard drive/ssd in the optical drive bay will run slow so the only thing it is good for is just mass storage. Video will stream from it but it will not be suitable for operations which require fast disk access like video editing or CAD work, Code assembly, etc.

Since I rarely use my optical drive and frequently back up files to an external hard drive, I'd like to put a HDD in the optical bay and just swap it out for the DVD player whenever that is needed. My T530 (i5-3210M Win7HP) has a 256GB Crucial mSSD for the boot drive and programs;  the original 500GB/7200 rpm in the drive bay has data files, Outlook and Quicken files, music, photos and documents. For the optical bay HDD 500 GB would be plenty, but the 750 GB is only about $10 more, so why not?  (I'd probably put the 750 in the drive bay and make it the data drive, with the 500 in the optical bay for a back up drive... and this is about convenience more than need.) Best I can tell the optical drive supports SATA 6GB/sec but most of the 2.5" 750GBx7200 rpm drives are SATA 3GB/sec.  (On the other hand, the Hitachi MK5061GSY 500GBx7200 that came in my T530 appears to be 'only' SATA II, and most forum posters suggest there's not a noticable difference.) Of the 750 GB drives it seems the Seagate Momentus ($82) and Western Digital Scorpio Black ($78) would be the top two choices.  I think they're both 9.5mm and would fit. Some reviews indicate the Western Digital is quieter. The caddy is more problematic, as there are so many choices, and many appear to be poorly-fitting Chinese knockoffs.  I'm not inclined to pay $70 for the Lenovo, when the others are in the $10-15 range, but I do want one that fits well and works well and lasts.&n...

I found nothing on the internet about the read write speeds of drives (hard drives, SSD) using optical drive bay caddies, therefore I decide to do some tests myself.
I have a Vostro 3450 and recently bought an off-lease Latitude E6410. They both run Windows 7  The optical drive bay of both laptops are removable (more conveniently on the Vostro). I bought the optical drive caddies on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/110940581984?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/110970738087?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
Both caddies can take drives (HDD, SSD) up to 9.5 mm thick.
First of all, I want to find out what interface the optical drive use to communicate with the laptop. I use Speecy ( http://www.piriform.com/speccy ), a system hardward information freeware to find this informaton. It turns out that this is SATA II (transfer speed 3 Gbps = 384 MBps) on the Latitude E6410 and SATA III (6Gbps = 768 MBps) on the Vostro.
The optical bay caddies of both laptops are "hot swappable" (ie. can be inserted / removed on-the-fly without rebooting, and the new drive will be automatically detected / deleted by the operating system). This is easily done on the Latitude which has an Eject button on the DVD drive (and the caddy I bought - there are models without the ejector). You need to remove one screw on the bottom panel of the Vostro, remove another screw that holds the drive in place, and use a small flat-head scre... Read more

I have just installed a SSD and moved my original HDD to a optical bay caddy. It all worked fine until I fitted the 2nd HDD optical bay caddy. After I did this it now boots from the 2nd HDD optical bay caddy rather than the SSD in the main drive slot. It has also moved the SSD to drive letter E, with the HDD as C. I would just change them back but I'm not sure whether you can just do that when an OS is installed and running on them. My type of BIOS does also not display any of the drives, just displaying 'OS boot manager', 'CD Rom (Internal)', 'USB Key', 'CD Rom (USB)'. I have a HP Pavilion G6 laptop and I'm running Window 8. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Solved: Laptop Booting From 2nd HDD Optical Caddy

I have since disconnected the 2nd HDD Caddy and Windows is booting from the SSD fine with it labeled as the C drive. I fear though if I reconnect it it will push the SSD to the E drive again (the D drive is the recovery partition of the HDD). I tried connecting the caddy when the laptop was switched on but I couldn't get it to display in disk management after a rescan and refresh. As there is no data on the HDD that I actually want (as it is a new laptop) I would happily delete the whole HDD (C drive), the only data on the drive I would wish to keep is the recovery partition (D drive).

Machine is a Acer Aspire 5520 (not sure on the numbers - its a 55xx) notebook running vista Home Prem SP2.

Customers brought it in, with the DVD drive not working, was sent away to a repairers, drive was replaced tested ok then sent back (it was lost on the way back and took 3-4 to arrive but hey thats not the issue)

The customers brought the machine to me today, saying that once again the drive isn't working - which I thought was odd.. but heres the deal.

When Windows is is booted normally the drive doesn't function, at all. No power no nothing. if I run the microsoft fix it tool it says it can see that the drive isn't working properly or something, but cannot fix it.

When the computer is booted into safe mode, the drive functions normally - so you'd assume a fault with windows.. but here's the twist:

The BIOS doesn't see the drive, therefore you can't even boot from CD's - so how the hell would it work in safe mode?

I thought I'd just do a restore on the computer anyway to see if I could get it function in normal mode, called the customer asked them if it was OK to do a restore, which was fine.. but booted into the Recovery mode and was then prompted to enter the "empowering technoloy password" - called the customer; whats your password on the system recovery? - customer: what system recovery? what password?
