I purchased a DV71240us for a great price, but didn't get the one option I really wanted which was 2 Hard Drives.
I would like to order the HDD cage for the 2nd drive but no one carries them ( not in stock). Is there an HP part number
and a place to order it from HP ?
There is no part number on the primary cage ( which is rare for HP / Compaq )

I appreciate the details; but what do you mean by checking to see if there's an adapter? First, what's an adapter look like, and second, if there is an adapter, what does that mean? is it possible that you can't add a second HDD??
I bought my HDX18t and ordered it with only one 500gb HDD, instead of the other option (no price difference) of two 250gb drives. Of course I did this with the thought of adding a second drive in the second bay.
Do you have experience doing this? Thanks so much.
