Toughbook CF-72.... HD Caddy

Threaded View
I just recently snagged two trashed Panasonic Toughbook Laptops CF-72
from the IT Department's trash heap.  Both were trashed but I managed
to get the pieces put together as one good working unit.  As I was
booting I found there was no hard drive.  So the next day I asked if
they had the hard drives out of them.  They said they're not allowed
to give out any hard drives, corporate info and all.  Understandable.
That evening I returned home to find I had a good laptop hard drive
but then, being new to the Toughbook world, realized I needed a
Toughbook Hard Drive Caddy.  So the next day I asked about that to
which I was told there were two of them in the trash with the laptops
and the trash had been taken!  ACK!!!!  Like I knew what those

Anyway, I have been of to find a caddy for the hard drive and even on
Ebay, they're selling for +$90.  More then a hard drive costs.  I did
find some caddies available for a Toughbook CF-71 and I was wondering
if the CF-72 and the CF-72 might take the same caddy as these were
about 1/3 the price of the CF-72 caddies???

Does anyone know if the Panasonic Toughbook CF-71 and CF-72 take the
same hard drive caddy????

Thanks in advance for your help,

Lots of info here about the CF-72 including the service manual.
Hope this helps.
