Can anyone tell me that which HDD caddy would be suitable for HP-ay516tx laptop?
Because I bought two caddies from amazon but they both were not working for me.
So, please help. Thank you.

What was the problem? Were they too thick? If you have trouble getting the right one, you will first need to measure the thickness of the optical drive. You will see that it can vary between 9.5mm and 12,7mm. Once you know the measurements, you can use any caddy of that size. Just make sure you properly fit the HDD into. You will also need to mount the plastic rim from your original drive so it can look right.
