This review is from: EiioX SATA 2nd 2.5'' Hard Drive Caddy for 12.7mm Universal CD/DVD-ROM**Expand your data storage on your Laptop with HDD/SSD
Got an old SATA drive hanging around? Don't use your CD drive much any more? Just a bit handy? Not scared of opening up your laptop? Need some extra disk space? If the answer to these questions is 'yes' then get one of these gadgets and put that drive to use! Making your CD removable may sound a bit hair-raising but it's really quite straightforward. I did it for a recent Toshiba and it was pretty easy. I use Ubuntu and it was all fine once used; can't attest, however, how Windows will feel about it. If you're not up to this sort of "techno-macho" and don't mind carrying the extra clobber around, you may want to try one of the USB enclosures (e.g., http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002UZO07C/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_35) and with USB speeds where they are now, you really shouldn't notice the difference. By the way, this gadget is really quite inexpensive.
