I know Lenovo T61 has a 9.5mm IDE DVD drive.
What other models are fitted with 9.5mm thick IDE DVD drives ?
Is there a list which models use it ?
(Older IBMs are usually fitted with bigger 12.7mm IDE DVD drives.)
Since you are talking about the Ultrabay, then the answer is rather simple.
9.5mm Ultrabay is known as "Ultrabay Slim" and was used by T4x/T6x generation as well as X4x/X6x Ultrabase and Z60t/Z61t.
The 12.7mm is known as Ultrabay Enhanced.
X61 7673-V2V, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G, X32 (IPS Screen), A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad, A21m 2628-GXU
I need a CD or DVD drive that has a JAE-50 IDE connector(Female)
- I have one drive: UJDA760(mfg.2005) but it is 12.7mm thick.
Did they ever make a 9.5mm thick JAE-50 IDE drive ?
Or are all 12.7mm thick ?

I'm having a hard time remembering if there was ever a Thinkpad IDE DVD drive that has the standard JAE-50 connector.
My answer is "yes", because the one in the T61 is a custom model with a proprietary connector, which means that it's derived from a base model that has a standard JAE-50 IDE connector.Did they ever make a 9.5mm thick JAE-50 IDE drive ?
In other words: they do exist, but not inside Thinkpads.
