HP Laptop 17-an0xx 3rd HD

OMEN by HP Laptop 17-an0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HI there, I have the OMEN by HP Laptop 17-an0xx, it has an M2 boot drive 128gb and 1tb second drive. With the back case removed you can see where the dvd drive would normally go but this model doesnt come with one so it has a ribbon slot free where it would go. See photos:

First Photo is a photo I found online and the second mine, you can see the dvd drive area and free ribbon slot.

 

Also when you open Intel Rapid Storage technology program, it saysinternal port 3 empty.

 

So I presume I need an adapter of some sort to go from the ribbon connection to enable the sata and power for another drive.

 

Can anyone clarify anything, ideallt where I can get the parts.

 

Thanks.

The Maintenane and Service Guide indicates there is a second HDD (on page 40). Please try caddy kit from the following vendor

or check Hard drive connector and cable part # 857462-001

Thanks for the reply.

 

Looking at the free ribbon slot meant for the opitcal drive, it appears wider than the one on the right used for the hard drive. Looking at the pdf manual it looks like I need '931563-001'  '(20)Optical drive (cable is spared separately as 931563-001), SATA 9.5 mm tray'

Where can I get one of these from, google doesnt show very much.

 

Thanks

what about an053nr, does it take a 9.0mm or 9.5mm odd?

and which part numbers would that include (on either caddy or odd replacement)?
