Drive Caddy for V5-571 Optical Bay - doesn't fit

MagGyverMagGyver Posts: 1Member

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.
