Caddy optical Bay for Pavilion dv4 - 1228ca - where to find?

Anyone know where to find less expensive optical Bay caddy for Pavilion dv4 - 1228 laptop computer ca?

Try eBay, however, could not find one with the connector appropriate; This one

would work, but it was a little overpriced for an investment of old machine... Any ideas, please?


Newmodeus is about the only game in town for this kind of product. I know an organization called in my hometown has some drive hard generic 2d optical Bay adapters, but they wouldn't look nearly as good as that of your machine.

  • Caddy optical Bay for Tecra S10-106


    I would use an SSD instead of the conventional HARD disk, but SSDS are very expensive and that is why I would like to replace the optical drive with my conventional HARD drive. The optical drive is not often used and so I'm looking for a Bay optical caddy who easily replaced the DVD drive. I know that old Tecra Systems (e.g. 8100), that such a Bay was available.

    I don't want to use an external drive, because I do not carry many devices with me. Please can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey mate,

    I know that there are these optics by caddy for some Toshiba laptops but I don t know if they are available for Tecra S10 and if it of possible.

    You should ask a service provider authorized in your country. If this an optical bay caddy is available, you order if by technicians and they can give you a detailed response. :)

  • Pavilion dv4-2160us: correct bios for Pavilion dv4-2160us

    I have serious overheating problems on my Pavilion dv4-260 and reading that updated the bios might help. I have version F0.b, but some sources said another version.  The HP site says nothing when I check the updates.  Can someone tell me what should be the current bios?

    Last version for your model is F.0F - the title of the list of drivers for Windows 7.

    I doubt that a BIOS update would solve the problems of overheating. An older office here suffers from overheating in Windows 10 and I think it is due to no AMD graphics driver to Win 10. The graphics card is old and not support for win 10 AMD. The driver using Microsoft base. No doubt will be back this machine to Windows 7.




    Yes, he does.

    You need this driver for the PCI device.

  • Buy a new battery for Pavilion dv4. Confirming the compatibility of battery KS526AA.

    I ran a diagnostic battery last night after that I had trouble keeping my battery charged. It must be replaced. I think I found the battery on Amazon: it's a KS526AA. I found the battery on the HP Web site as well, but this product does not list what laptops, it is compatible with. I know the standard dv4 is a KS524AA, but I wouldn't mind the extended battery, just as long as it works.

    Does anyone know phones compatible for the KS526AA or that the batteries are compatible with a Pavilion dv4?

    Thank you!

    It depends on the specific dv4 series you are referring. Here is the battery compatibility chart:

  • 2nd drive HARD drive caddy optical Bay - Pavilion dv6700

    Hello world

    I hope someone here can help with that, because I'm out of ideas...

    I've recently updated the primary drive of my laptop dv6700 (dv6820es) with an SSD. I did a new install of Win_7_32 and there is no problem at all.

    But this record is not that great, so I decided to plug in the SATA HARD disk-old through the optical drive Bay in order to have the storage capacity. For this, I ordered a SATA-to-PATA caddy that fits perfectly.

    The big problem now is to make this combination of work:

    • Behavior of the BIOS: it is difficult to say if the BIOS detects the drive properly, as long as this model of the BIOS is pretty poor in the configuration/information options. In any case, when I press F9 with the 2nd HARD drive plugged in, a new startup option appears as well as the SSD and is listed as "7. Notebook hard drive. The HARD drive is spinning too. Because of what I guess that the BIOS detects, at least, 'something' (but again, I can't tell if the HARD drive as it is or just some unknown decive). Moreover, the BIOS is updated to the latest available version: l58 A.
    • Behavior of Windows: for what I can see, Windows behaves as if the reader was not there. Nothing in the "Device Manager" and nothing in the "Disk Manager", just the SSD drive is detected. With one exception, in one of the restarts a lot I did the player that presented themselves. The usual text bubble said 'installation disk... ". ", and apparently it installed fine. After installation, there was this new IDE drive "" under "Drives" in the "Windows Device Manager". Well, it seems to work! But unfortunately, I've seen my hopes be disappointed in the next step, when you try to initialize the drive through the "Disk Manager". First of all, it took a long time (like 4-5 minutes) with the program that 'think', finally launch one of these errors of the infamous 'cyclic redundancy. I rebooted, but the player was not there yet. And he never showed up again, just this time.

    Sad thing is that I can't tell what makes the difference. I updated some things like the drivers of Intel chip, Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver (not really necessary, I suppose, but just in case)... throughout this process. But in fact nothing in particular time it almost worked.

    My ATA drivers are the most recent available for my chipset AHCI. Is there a driver I'm missing? Is there an impossibility for the 2nd HDD (PATA) to work with the SSD works in AHCI mode?

    Well, I think it's all (sorry for the long post). Maybe someone has endured/solved a similar problem.

    Please share your knowledge

    Hi Erico,

    Sorry for the confusion of information.

    The HARD drive is a SATA drive and the optical drive is a PATA drive, so I used a caddy SATA-PATA. Something like that:

    (Although the one I ordered is not the manufacturer)

    Whereas, although the HARD drive is a SATA drive, it should be detected as a PATA one. Is it possible to make interfaces SATA AHCI as PATA work together? Is not in this case. Need a motherboard very ethusiast and advanced BIOS level.

    [Edit: the chipset is, moreover, of the Mobile Intel 965 Express Family.]

    Perhaps that the liaison has a cable better than purchased translation Setup. A lot of people seem to be satisfied with it.

    The physical connection of hard disks must be of the same type for the reason that I expressed in my previous post, unless there is a translation of the work cable between SATA and PATA.

    If your laptop has a double drive Bay and you have installed the drive in the Bay with a caddy and cable SATA cononector it would be simple.

  • Pavilion DV4: error of hard disk for Pavilion DV4

    24 short drive self-test error code would indicate that hard is defective and must be replaced.  This is also consistent with the problem of slow performance that you describe.

    If your laptop is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange for the disk replaced - you can check the status of your warranty here.

    If you live in the United States, contact HP here.

    If you are in another part of the world, begin here.
