SSD adapter in low-profile floppy bay by mpatoulachik Jan 21, 2013

Description

My IBM Thinkcentre has only one 3,5" bay,CD and floppy, and I wanted to add a SSD hard drive while keeping the old disk as storage.

The computer is a special small form factor and the floppy drive has also a strange form factor.
It is a Sony MPF820 and its dimensions are L130 x W96 x T12,7mm

This thing is an adapter to install a thin 2,5" SSD in this floppy bay (1,44MB heh, who needs that?)

Instructions

This is just two side rails. There are holes to screw the ssd from underneath, but it wasn't possible in my setup, I had to screw it from the sides..

Print one as it is
Print another one but mirrored
Install and enjoy.

On the picture I show my setup besides an adapter for a regular floppy bay (Thing #10519, wider but shorter)
Excellent work. I'll have to try this sometime
