UATA (IDE) to SATA adapters (split from marketplace)

#1 Post by Behemot » Tue Sep 01, 2020 10:48 am

As per my original WTB thread, I'll start sepparate thread in more appropriate section.

I've received the first 5 pcs of the caddies for testing. I can say, the chinese variant looks quite nice, they even coppied that plastic thingie which holds installed HDD in place. Works just fine in T61, there does not appear to be any difference from the original IBM/Lenovo caddy, function-wise.

I'll try few different TP models which I have. I think the oldest I have is like R50 or something. But in theory, it should run in pretty much everything with the connector, right? That would be as old as A22. From my experience, even UATA-to-M.2 adapter work fine in old HP laptops even under XP, so I guess that pretty much all the laptops, including some very old ones, which have this JAE PM1M050H1AE, should support it.

How can the same adapter / tray work in both a T60 / 61 and an A22 (or T22). The connectors are vastly different.

Obviously that's if the old models had the JAE connector. If they had something else yet, no joy there :o Never seen that old TPs yet so been guessing there.

So it's only UB Slim/Enhanced than, correct?

Yes UltraBay Slim or enhanced, them only differing in height. This would be T40 series through T60 / 61 series (along with Z/X/R etc). Before these, T 30 and earlier used the Ultrabay 2000 connector which was quite larger and stuck out a little from the back of the drive / adapter.
