DIY Laptop Optical Drive Bay HDD Caddy

One easy way for boosting your laptop performance is to get a SSD drive. Unfortunately they are still quite small (in terms of capacity) compared to the traditional HDDs. So to get the best of both worlds I needed a way to fit both drives in my laptop. The operation consisted of finding an old DVD ROM and proper cable, getting rid of the dvd’s internals, fixing the cable and hdd onto the metal case.

Sorry for the crappy photos.
