dv7-4300el 2nd hd caddy+cabel - looking for part numbers

Hi, Carlo:

 

Thanks!   That would be great!

 

I have one last question about the cable. Would the cable going to your DVD-ROM work? 

 

If it would, you could order one of those, couldn't you? Or would it be too short.

 

I assume the DVD-ROM is a SATA device on these modern notebooks and not an IDE interface, correct?

 

alla salute!

 

Paul

dv7-4300el 2nd hd caddy+cabel - looking for part numbers

Hello Paul
I made another order might be the right one (2nd HDD Caddy & Cable for HP dv7-4000, DV7-5000, dv7t SE dv7tQE) the store is:

http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=345&zenid=b451f3afd6d86cd...


The cable for connection to CD / DVD is definitely SATA (I removed) but it is strangely smaller than the 2.5 sata hard drive, so the cable of the cd / dvd does not work. On the motherboard there are two identical neighboring links between them, one for the CD / DVD (optical drive) the other is empty and I think serves the hard drive # 2.

The website shows the connection: http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=page&id=32&chapter=0
I hope I have resolved, to be sure I'll have to wait 20 days, delivery of materials (2nd HDD Caddy & Cable for HP dv7-4000, DV7-5000, dv7t SE dv7tQE)

Paul's health

Carlo

Ciao Paul
 Ho fatto un altro ordine forse è quello giusto (2nd HDD Caddy & Cable for HP dv7-4000, dv7-5000, dv7t SE, dv7tQE) il negozio è: http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=345&zenid=b451f3afd6d86cd...
Il cavo per il collegamento al cd/dvd è sicuramente sata (l'ho smontato) ma è stranamente più piccolo del sata dell'hard disk da 2,5, perciò il cavo del cd/dvd non funziona. Sulla scheda madre vi sono due collegamenti identici vicini fra loro, uno per il Cd/DVD (unità Ottica) l'altro è vuoto ed io penso serva al hard disk N°2. Il sito internet mostra il collegamento: http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=page&id=32&chapter=0
Spero di aver risolto, per essere sicuro dovrò aspettare 20 giorni, per la consegna del materiale (2nd HDD Caddy & Cable for HP dv7-4000, dv7-5000, dv7t SE, dv7tQE)

Alla salute Paul

Carlo

Heureka ... "I found it."

Cosider drive that the PC has 1.3 TB of memory, now I have a little monster notebook!

the total cost of € 48 Euro.

Hello
Your notebook has the same motherboard DV7-4300, if you ordered the cable http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=345

You can be sure will work fine.
