SOLVED :  SSD  SATA III working in Optical Drive now.

Followed Erick McWayne solution above and it worked for me.  I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) - 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7.

I have a EVO 850 SSD as main drive and a 500 GB HDD in "Optical Drive", But it was taking too much battery/ too much noise. I put a new Samsung 860 EVO 500GB  SATA III SSD in optical drive. For some reason it was not working.  After reading the post above,  I realized that my caddy is not SATA III compatible. So  I clicked on the link provided

It looked exactly like my previous caddy but something inside, a chip or something is new.  Make sure seller is "HIGHFINE".

NOTE : After installing new Caddy in optical drive with SSD Sata III, I started computer and was able to see SSD in DISK UTILITY. I initialized/  formatted it. BUT drive was showing in some weird small size. I restarted Laptop and it came on FINE.
