An optional SuperDisk (LS120) drive, or a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000, expands storage. The second HDD option, requiring an adapter, can be used with all ThinkPad T21, T22 models

here is the IBM accessory list... UltraBay HD's

looks like it.... not too familiar with their hardware workups... IBM sometimes goes overboard...

have you thought about just getting a memory stick (unless you need more than 2gb of space...), they are quite handy

I do really ;-) It's actually for dual-booting that i need the extra drive. The current one is simply two small for two OSs.

why not just replace your existing one with one of the new 120gb baby monsters... ?

Could be pricey couldn't it? Plus the resale value of the old one i'd guess would be so low as to render it an expensive paperweight i'd guess.

I'm slightly smarting about this machine. I bought it from a friend for 200 GBP and have spent 130 GBP upgrading to maximum memory (500 + 128 on board [i think]). This is still not enough RAM. I think you can see where this is heading ...

hmmmm, couldn't you run DOS... maybe the small 3.3 version... takes up a lot less space  :-)


I am off to other worlds.... good luck with your T22
