IBM thinkpad x31 w/ultrabay 2000 blu-ray drive question

I just bought an ultrabay 2000 for my thinkpad x31 winXPpro and would like to get a drive.  Will the 39T2853 blu-ray work in this situation?  ...tia!

    I have discovered there is a blu-ray device 43n3200 but it requires an Ultrabay Enhanced to Ultrabay 2000 adapter 73P3268.  Further, some say the 16mb GPU (VPU) of the x31-2672XXL will not support blu-ray well.  Any thoughts?  My x31 is a P-IV-M1.4 w/2gbRAM and 120GBHDD.

If the bay is a DVD drive Blue Ray will work as long as you have a newer DVD decoding software. There are some decoders or codecs at IBM's support site, such as WinVid. If the codecs at IBM do not work with Blue Ray, then try download.com and search for DVD playing software.

  • A31 standard 2.5 inch 40GB
  • A31p standard 2.5 inch 60GB
  • Supports two additional hard drives which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface

  • Although you can upgrade the hard drive, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 hard drive adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second hard drive in the Ultrabay 2000

I HAVE LAPTOP IBM THINKPAD T30 AND I WANT TO CONNECT HARD DISK 80GB OR MORE


  • Supported HDD thickness:
    • 12.5 mm for systems without the touch pad
    • 9.5mm for systems with the touch pad
  • Standard 20GB, 40GB, 60GB HDD sizes.
    Note:
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as marketing option part number 08K9688 has a height of 12.5mm and will not fit in the HDD slot of the systems with the touch pad installed. For these systems, it is only supported via the ThinkPad 2nd HDD Adapter for the Ultrabay 2000.
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as replacement service part number 08K9833 is 9.5mm.
  • Supports one additional HDD which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage utilizing the Ultrabay 2000
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface
  • 4200 or 5400 rpm
  • Although you can upgrade the HDD, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 HDD adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000 IBM says. I say if the OS recognises it and so does the BIOS, you're good. good luck, hope this helps.-jmattes p.s. I found this info on: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42218.html

2nd hdd


both hard drives will need to be jumpered to a master and a slave or both have to be jumpered to cable select. normally the jumper setting are either on the label of the drives or are marked on the bottom of the drives near the jumper drives. if the setting are not shown find the drive type, model and capacity then do a google search for the drive "select the factory manufacture link" and search their site for the jumper setting of the type drive you have.

Ibm t30


The T30 comes with ‘One, integrated, easy-loading modular Ultrabay(TM) 2000 Plus.’
You should be able to buy a DVDR Ultrabay™ 2000 Plus drive that will replace the floppy drive.
