    I don't know but you could make one fairly easily.

    Got an old unused cd rom kicking about? if so you could take the metal cover off it and use that as a tray, you'd need to do a small amount of modding, mainly drilling 4 holes to put screws through.

    Saying that, here we go

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/silve...rter-bay-black

    Or for £50 which is a little pricey http://www.ebuyer.com/221596-startec...e-satsasbay425 mount 4 2.5" drives in a single 5.25" bay & hot swappable

    Although I'm sure I've seen a cheaper 2 driver version, just cannot find it off hand.

    Good effort if I was looking for 5.25" to 2.5"...

    I'm after the slimline flavour though.

    I'll take a guess at that being so obscure that it probably doesn't exist.

    How about some more details of what you are trying to do?

    If there is a front plate in the slim bay already (guessing you have a slim bay to start with), then how about attaching this to it and going from there?

    Are these what you're looking for? Careful though, some of those have lower profiles, e.g. the ones for the Dell E6400 are 'slim' ones.

    Doh, sorry I missed the word slimline.

    However DDY has hit the nail on the head.
