I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W510. Currently I have a SSD 125GB hard drive in it, but that is too small for me.

Is it possible to replace my DVD drive with another SATA Hard Drive?

You could replace your W510's optical drive with Lenovo's ThinkPad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (Part # 43N3412) and a larger SATA hard drive.

I replaced my optical drive with a SSD drive, using this method. It increased my battery life on the system by about 20%. The lower wattage of the SSD (less than 1w) helped a lot. The CDRom I think was a 5w power draw. – djangofan Nov 15 '11 at 19:51
