I just installed a SSD in my HP G60-230US laptop and would like to use the HDD as a second drive in the CD/DVD bay.

Does anyone know who sell a SATA caddy that would work for my laptop? I emailed caddy vendors on Amazon market place and ebay but they cannot tell me that their products would work in my HP laptop model.

The beauty of laptop optical drives, is that aside from the tray panel and how it attaches to the tray, the rest of the drive is universal. Your laptop uses a standard optical drive, and it could make use of a true universal replacement slim drive (the kind where the drive "door" is no wider/taller than the dimensions of the drive). So, yes... any number of the ones I found on Amazon will work in your laptop. Several at Amazon. Note, I'm not talking about a 9.5mm Ultra slim drive... I'm talking about a standard 12.7mm slim drive. Your laptop doesn't use an Ultra Slim drive.
