How sure are you there's no connector?

Does the back of the DVD drive show the same SATA power and data connections?

When you shine a light into the slot do you see anything that matches this or is there simply nothing at all that would fit?

As said above you're pretty much SOL otherwise unless you contact Toshiba and there's some connector but frankly I think it would need to be there already.

*But why have the bay at all if it's useless? Something doesn't sound right here.

Also, and this is a CANADA link there are external enclosures for slim drives (for SATA and recommend USB3 support though USB2 likely works the same):
