For anyone watching this video. You are supposed to remove the front of the optical drive and snap it onto the hdd caddy. Then you won´t have the big hole in the side of your computer. Also you are supposed to remove the small metall bracket on the back of the opical drive and mount it on the hdd caddy or you will not be able to screw it down to the comouter.

Just wondering if you removed the front bezel from the optical dvd would it fit on the new hard-drive case. This way there wouldn't be any gap left after installation.

I think this is a troll video. I'm pretty sure the optical DVD drive uses a different connection than what the dvd adapter uses. This is a dv6. I tried this with a dv4 and the connections were completely different and in the opposite sides.
