Does anyone know how to open the SSD caddy on an Orion 7000 po7-640??  No instructions anywhere!

    The picture of the caddy opened up distinctly shows the four screw holes. If the caddy is designed only for a 2.5" drive then no adapter is needed, just four screws.

    Sorry to say that there are no instructions for the SSD caddy, just the internal HDD caddys - I have these instructions already thanks.

    They do show a button right next to the caddy with an eject symbol on it...

    Thank you, but I know how to eject the caddy, but there are no instructions on how to insert an SSD within the caddy so that you can use it!!

    Has anybody done this?  As far as I can see all the reviewers said it was amazing and would "transform your workflow" but I am getting the theory that nobody actually used it!

    @Rob_Lansdown does it has 2 screws on both sides? Maybe you can try to unscrew it.
    Please remember to include @AnhEZ28 when you want to reply back to my comment so that I can check your response.
    Thank you and have a nice day!

    @AnhEZ28  Tried that thanks, nothing budges when you undo them - it looks like the other end is supposed to come off, but there seems no way to remove it - there are spring clips on either side at the rear, but they to not release anything either - Thanks for your help though

    Hi, apparently there is some connector inside that opening, I think there should be on the other side as well, and by pressing both, that piece should come out to access the internal contents.

    RenanVilela - I have tried those before, but there is no movement on them whatsoever.  There is also a locking mechanism in the caddy bay that locks into these notches, so I do not think that is it I am afraid, but thanks for the thought (unless I am being a bit limp wristed with them of course!).  Rob

    On second thought it seems to me that it is to attach the adapter.

    Is there any extra storage that is listed in the Dsic Manager?
    This adapter apparently already comes with an ssd inside.

    I think that this part on the inside, this piece where the USB-C connector is, fits in with the one on the outside.
    And it looks like there are two screws on the side edges.

    As you can see from the scratch marks, I have tried removing the screws and prising off the cover, but it does not come out - I am worried that I will do more damage if I continue down that path - Nobody seems to have ever used this!

    @Rob_Lansdown try to use a pen or a sim ejector to push inside, up, or downward with this side facing the table or the floor. (Do not follow!)
