2nd HDD SSD Caddy installation in DELL E6530, E6520, E6430, E6330 modular bay
Adding a 2nd Hard Drive or 2.5" SSD to DELL laptops equipped with an E-Modular Bay (Latitude E6530, E6520, E6430, E6420, E6330) is a simple task with our HDD caddies. The DELL Modular Bay with optical drive has a built-in eject / latch locking mechanism. You can easily remove the optical drive by pressing on the eject latch on the optical drive. This releases a lock and the latch will eject out of the optical DVD drive. You can then pull on the latch to pull optical DVD drive out. These modular bays are hot swapple, therefore you can remove the optical drive and insert the HDD caddy while the laptop is running. Once you have the optical drive out, you can insert the 2nd HDD caddy (with HDD or SSD installed). Once inserted, press on the latch so the HDD caddy locks in place. If you are installing a new hard drive (never been formatted or partitioned), you will have to format and partition the new drive for Windows to recognize the new drive.
