Is the DVDRW SATA drive port/layout the same as the 2009 Pro?

Id like to put a second hard drive in the DVDRW's place, but i can only find caddies that are built for previous 2009 Unibody MacBook Pros.

My main concern is the SATA plug on the 2010 DVD drive and if its the same as the older models (all-in-one connector but smaller power than usual, 6pin from what i can gather).

Here is a couple of pictures of the caddy I'm looking at if it helps, and thanks in advance to everyone.

Looking closely at the pictures unless one of the pictures is flipped it doesn't appear the connections will mesh. Ralph


Pic 1 shows the bottom of the caddy if that what you referring to.


and thanks for your reply :)


Ok the drive layout will be fine, its just the connector I need to make sure of now, whether its still using the 6 pin sata power, all one connector (smaller than usual).
