Second hard drive on the laptop instead of the optical drive

Today I will show you how to mount the second hard drive in the laptop, instead of the optical drive, for this we will use in the adapter that I got from ebay, for this I paid 18 US dollars but these Adapters can be much cheaper if you take them from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, etc. ($ 7-9 US). The package came to my door in 7 days, it can come from Asia in 45 days. If you are not in a hurry… ..
I will not refer to itself buying its details (ebay fees, VAT, transport, customs, etc.) to this we have a tutorial about shopping on ebay.
First of all you need to know some details about your optical drive, so you can buy the right product.
The most important details are:
1. Profile optical drive, so must be the adapter (12,7mm or 9,5 mm)
2. Interface optical drive, so to be and adatptorul (ide or sata)
3. Interface hard drive that you will install (SATA or IDE)
I needed an adapter from SATA to SATA 12,7 mm, you may need something else, you must remove the optical drive and make sure before, to see what profile is and what interface. Besides, undoing optical drive can take courage to mount adapter (caddy, as it is called off).
For example, if you have an IDE optical drive and 12,7mm and hard drive which adapter to use it in is SATA, you need 12,7mm IDE adapter with SATA hard disk slot.
Those with ultrabooks with optical drive, definitely will need an adapter 9,5mm. In any case you should make sure in advance that you do not buy the wrong product.
Immediately after installation, and, as shown in the tutorial, worked hard disks, for it did not do special settings. When you are likely to be other settings in bios, usually optical drive is the boot priority (that and the new hard drive will be), if you have trouble booting the operating system after installing the new hard drive will need to enter the BIOS and place as the main boot drive to hard drive with the operating system.

      Adrian Gudus: If you were a fan of the site you saw "episode" in which my colleague showed how to change the hard drive and optical drive in a laptop. There my colleague changed the laptop's hard drive with a SSD Well that HDD to put in the "episode" the optical drive instead now remounted. The conclusion? It is old laptop's HDD. On normal hard disk slot has now installed an SSD and optical drive is mounted in place now the old HDD.

      As far as I know, the “Desktop Systems” HDDs are 3.5 ″ and the laptop ones are 2.5 ″.

  2. Indeed very useful tutorial. No I thought not possible. Although my laptop has already 2 HDD and optical drive is a Blu-Ray, I think I'll use your idea and make a memory expansion.

    There my colleague changed the laptop's hard disk with SSD
    Well, the HDD he took out in that "episode" is now being replaced by the optical drive.
    The conclusion? It is old laptop's HDD.
    On normal hard disk slot has now installed an SSD and optical drive is mounted in place now the old HDD.

    That's a good idea, I was thinking how to do to put an SSD in my laptop and look like someone came up with the idea and even show you step by step how to do. You did a great job, congratulations!

  5. hello, I'm really looking and I found something like this at a boy in Bucharest, only I need PATA idea at sata (hdd) anyway ms for tutorial… 😛

  6. FaqTak said

    How quickly it moves even when the laptop has an SSD. I saw that the laptop booted in a few seconds using that ssd.
    People do not understand, how good is an SSD, and you can do with an SSD, the world just look at the price and that's all.
    In general many of the Romans just want as large HDDs and save movies non stop, and listen to manele.

    In general (to be in tune with your problem) you can find this information on the spot if you end up buying from a store shelf or on the website of the store that sells the product.
    We observed a tendency for people to ask questions to protect sellers of electronic and appliance stores with the false impression that it is the duty of the seller to laumureasca client or even worse that asking to get upset / disturb seller.
    Not by a long shot, it is his duty to inform the client and respond to questions.

    • Daniel said

      What is the resolution of a display?
      Resolution is nothing else than the number of pixels present on each square meter of screen. The resolution is therefore inversely proportional to pixel pitch: the more distance between two pixels is smaller, the resolution is higher (because the surface of the screen is now a greater number of LEDs).

      For example, a screen with a pitch 20 mm has a pixel resolution of 2304: This value is obtained by dividing the total length of a single module (975 mm) Pixel pitch (in this case, 20 mm) resulting in the number of pixels on a single line: 975: 20 = 48 pixels. Multiplying the number of pixels present in one line with the total number of lines resulting total number of pixels present on the surface of the screen also called Resolution. In our example, 48 x 48 = 2304 pixels in total.

      Given this formula, it is possibile to calculate a 30 mm pitch screen has a resolution of 1024 pixels per module, while a 10 mm pitch screen has a resolution of 9216 pixels per module.

      It is important to note that only a few millimeters of reduction in pixel pitch leads to an increase in the density of LEDs (and therefore the resolution) exponential.

    Hello ! "Tell us your opinion": well, would it be better for Mr. Adrian to remain "sick" or at least that's how Cristi answered about the lack of his comments when someone asked at one point "where is Adrian?" ”; don't get me wrong that I want him to be "sick", but probably whatever the reason for his absence from the comments was it is good to continue with that "reason". Out of 1 comments, 10 he "quarrels" and "reprimands" each one who did not really follow the entire tutorial or did not document enough about the problem that raises it, what will it be!
    Adrian I suggest you take the example of Christ, if you see a problem user rambling, not responding! These appearances of the comments sharing your "hands" on the left and right bothers many.

    Super cool idea, I did not know that there is such an adapter.
    Let's hope that in 2-3 years 500 gb ssds will appear at acceptable prices. Then we will no longer need to do various tricks with a small ssd and a normal hard drive instead of the optical drive. In the end, you have to buy a USB optical drive or, if not, at least improvise one with a rack or adapter. At least I couldn't stay without an optical drive, in some situations I find it much more convenient.

    Dear Cristi tell me please on ebay uk parcel of who you was delivered in Romania .. because I realized that Romanian Post has no job .. but there is a private company based in Sibiu Romania GLS .. they're brought in Bucharest and Sibiu you were to pick it up .. that I had a problem with a parcel and sent back without them let me know. I did not even know the company that ghost .. I found barely a month after I did half km from Timisoara post .. expect an answer.
    Regards and best.

  39. Be careful what you order and where. Each brand and type of laptop needs a different caddy. For example, only for dell laptops there are dozens of adapters that differ from type to type. For my laptop I found a magician with <$ 10 but at another store a similar product was about $ 45. In our country only pc garage sold two types but at very high prices (even huge)

  40. Welcome. I'm a big fan of everything you do on videotutorial, appreciate!
    I wonder if you did all the above tutorial: I have this laptop: http://www.pcgarage.ro/notebook-laptop/asus/k53sd-sx169d-core-i5-2430m-24ghz-4gb-500gb-geforce-610m-2gb-brown/

    please tell me if it fits with my laptop, I mean that's the criterion you choose that fits just have to remove the CD and see how measures and so?

  41. Last night I pulled the drive and its dimensions match (are the same) as those specified by the seller on ebay that I want to buy for the shipment is free.

It would be very useful to know the advantages and dejavanteje completely, because I read that difetite sources put the hdd caddy Megre harder, that has lower speeds.

  43. Cristi how you loaded so fast windowsu? and I give ssd not override the boot logo without submit it whole!

  44. Hello!
    Congratulations for the article and all the tutorials on this site!
    I have a Dell Inspiron 17r5721. The optical drive has 9,5 mm thick. I am looking for a suitable caddy and two profile sites for this type of laptop I found a very interesting statement:
    “Updated SATA board: fix for Dell shutdown problem with 2nd HDD”
    I have not found anywhere remarks on this phenomenon, although we searched more.
    Question: in your experianta, it often happens that a second HDD mounted on the optical port, to make the system fall?
    I mention that I intend to put a SSD instead of the current 120GB 1TB HDD and mount it in him to caddy the site will be placed in the optical unit.
    Thank you for the reply!

    • I have not encountered any problem likely to Dell power management is quite aggressive and limited power consumption.
      From what I understand in the mint, there is a fix on that caddy.
      Do you realize that no one can guarantee you that it works smoothly 100%! There is a certain amount of suspense, just not guaranteed by the manufacturer settings.

  45. Thanks for the reply!
    In the meantime, I talked to Dell on the phone. They told me exactly what you mentioned: Dell has only implemented a caddy HDD system to replace the optical drive except on the Vostro model, which runs only on firm command, on the assembly line. Dell does not supply any Caddy, and service units are not authorized to do so. This problem has not been studied on other models, we cannot guarantee the stability of the system. Consequently, if you decide to do this upgrade, it is "at your own risk".

  46. Recently I installed and I Caddy.
    PRO: Ability to put the laptop hdd 2 century
    AGAINST: - the HDD caddy moves a little harder,
    - The cover of the DVD-RW does not clip the clips in the caddy (but the problem has been solved with a little insulating tape, it is not noticeable and it is firmly attached.

    I honestly am very satisfied with the device given that old HDD slot comes SSD so I did not bother to go a little harder in the HDD caddy anyway he's just storage.

    Worth the investment.

  47. I did and I do change, and the results are excellent. I put a Samsung SSD 120GB the main slot on the laptop and HDD 1TB I put the Caddy bought via the Internet from Romania, which have replaced the optical drive. I purchased a special cable for the optical drive (carefully, do not go to the HDD has different connectors) SATA-USB and now I can use easily and optical drive, but USB external connection.
    PRO: Speed ​​(boot in less than 20 seconds). The software that comes on the DVD in the SSD package is great. especially Samsung Magician. I did not clone the HDD, I preferred the "clean" installation. With Samsung Magician I managed to make all the necessary optimizations for the OS in just a few seconds. It's worth the money!
    AGAINST: Do not know why, I can not install Magic DVD. I think it needs the drivers from the optical drive and the lack of it, looking locks. But I found another solution. Any problems and updates the W7 Ultimate / 64. By the end, we did not update the Internet Explorer 11. Constant crashes. Anyway, do not use it, so no big problem.
    OTHER: Everyone knows that an SSD consumes much less than an HDD, so that system should generally be cooler to keep the battery longer. However, the statement is only partially true. Indeed, SSD consumes negligible, but the speed of the processor provides data require it to work harder, more intense, resulting in higher consumption. I have a laptop with a processor i7. Before going much below nominal frequency, temperatures rarely reached 45 cores at most 50 degrees. Now, when using the same design applications processor only stay in overclocking, specifically in maximum turbo-boost, as I show gadget installed Intel Turbo Boost Technology enabled, and core temperature, while running the same applications grows commonly in 60 deg and over. Obviously, the whole system feels this, including power supply that heats incomparably more. I think this is part and lack of optimization of existing computers in the performance of a SSD.
    Overall though, it is an investment that is worth the money.

  48. Hello I installed the Samsung adapter sata to sata caddy 12,7 mm instead I put SSD HDD Plextor DVD M3 instead I put 1TB HDD adapter I bought from Aurel see post above are satisfied f
    Thank you Cristi for tutorials as a whole so

  49. Hello back to a question I mounted Samsung NP300E7A-A03DE caddy adapter sata to sata hdd 12,7 mm instead I put M3 Plextor SSD instead of HDD DVD I put 1TB
    I installed uTorrent hdd 1Tb discharge after a night when traffic decreased seeding and prg really do not do activities I noticed that every time I access the HDD makes a noise like that when you start, if not access anything for 10-15 sec stops enter stembai if accessed again makes that noise and has a delay, if I have a prg or a player running in the background makes no noise My question is whether you have heard of this problem or whether there adapters that are not in stembai if can affect Hdd?

  50. Hello,
    Can you communicate with the seller of this product on ebay? and that is the final price [product price + shipping]
    Thank you!

  51. Hello Cristi,
    Pretty please tell me me why I did not see the second hard drive laptop 1 TB. I have a Lenovo laptop with hardware Z500 of 1 Tb. I bought myself a 120 GB SSD hard and I put in instead of 1 Tb and Tb 1 on this I put in place of optical drive with a caddy. I installed Windos 7 and 120 GB SSD works perfectly but does not appear in My Computer 120GB than this. Mention that the bios can see both drives.
    And another thing, no optical drive can not see USB cable. If hardware give the Tb 1 down and put the optical drive back in place they can see in the BIOS and in My Computer.
    I installed all the drivers from the Lenovo site but it still does not.
    I am desperate and any response is welcome.
    thank you

  52. Thanks Costelini,
    You were right, I had formatted in NTFS.
    Remains to solve the optical drive to see what's wrong.

  53. What caddy should I choose? the 9,5 12,7 or the mm?

    Hi, I wrote about what I'm telling you now but not where I should, so I have an a6000 laptop that went to the hard drive, I bought a caddy hdd and a Seagate hard drive thin moment of 500 gb, sata 2. I wanted to make the switch from idea to sata but it doesn't seem to work, in the bios he sees it but where it should show its capacity of 500 gb is 0. After I give it f10 it stays a bit, it restarts and tells me 'hard disk error' . Is there a bios setting I need to go to? Is it possible not to go without that hard on the idea? I also mention that I then tried the hard drive on another laptop (hp630) and it gives me the same 'hard disk error' message. Is it possible that you bought the defective hard drive? Thank you

    Hi I have a misunderstanding saw the tutorial I made there but sees no hdd mounted either on Windows 10 no in bios which is the original and new from the same laptop lenovo b50-80 that was tested installed windows 10 up to deputize with an SSD.
    The problem is that this hdd wd10jpcx-24ue4t0 has a jack in addition to the 2 4pini SATA caddy who does not connect to anything this to be the problem.

    PS jack looks like this:
