    I also have the nycomputek dvd caddy from ebay.
    It wasn't being recognized on Windows on my hp probook 450 g1 but when inserted I also experienced the big delay in shutdown.
    It was being recognized on Linux, but wasn't reliable on sleep.

    So I cleanly pulled the pin, but now the drive isn't recognized at all

    I pulled the wrong pin?

    Can someone point to a drive caddy that will surely work? Thanks

    Asus K45VM + Samsung 840 SSD here. Did the tape trick and works like a charm now, thanks.

    Thanks a lot!
    Found switcher, but mine got 3 positions, didn't know which i need so i've set from most left to most right. Works perfectly.
    Again many thanks for solution!
    P.S. It was Asus N56VZ :)

    This is my first post here. I also want to apologize for any misspellings English is not my native language.

    I have read the entire thread and I have the same problem as the others but can not come up with solution.

    I decided to use tape on the third pin instead cuting it by hand (call me cautious). When I turn on pc, it does not see the disk. When I removed the tape, drive is visible again, but the problem returns. If the trick with the tape didn't work cutting the pin would've been time consuming and hard to fix.

    My PC is Asus K56cm with Windows 8.1. I attached photos but they seems to be the same as those from post # 2 with one exception. My circuit board does not have the model name printed on the SATA connector.

    I have HP Probook 470 G1. Purchased some chinese ssd caddy. This solution worked for me. I used needle to pull out 3rd connector. Thanks
