Not sure if it will work in Z620.  considering the cables/connectors etc. or would it need an adapter..

 

For some reason, my post in the "Workstation" forum got locked

 

Thanks

in terms of size requirements it will fit without any issues as it's the same size as any other 5.25 tray

 

the usb card reader uses a standard usb 2.0 9 pin header (which the z620 has) and the laptop 7mm optical drive is a universal size so pick your make/model they make them with std sized (rare) sata connections, and the more common mini sata which is also a common adapter you can buy off newegg/amazon/ebay
