I would like to transform my dvd drive into HDD/SDD socket in my Acer TravelMate 5742G (so that I can use 2 hard drives). I have been looking for something similar on the web but unfortunately I have not found anything.

Is this possible ? Has anyone done something like this ?

You can check NewmodeUS I have used their adapters for Dell and Lenovo. They have some Acer adapters

I took a look on that but they are about 42$ each. I can find something similar on eBay for 10 - 15$ but I have not found an adapter for Acer Travel 5742g. – Patryk Feb 10 '12 at 18:10
I have used many from NewmodeUS and all ahve been good. Fast shipment and great service. Worth the money. Tried others and when I had an issue, no response. – Dave M Feb 11 '12 at 15:56
