Hi there,

I currently have 1 SATA DVD-RW drive in my PC, and want to install another (which happens to be IDE). I'm sure this will work, but I've reach ed a problem with my case.

I've removed the black bars which cover each bay (from the front) and have come up against a sheet of metal: -

Each piece spins about 45 degrees, but won't go any further... How do I fit the drive in? :cry:  :cry: 

Images are there to show the problem,

Twist the metal covers out with your hand like they were made to be removed.

Yup, wriggle them until they come out altogether. They will snap off at the weak points on the side. There are holes provided to re-attach the plate should you wish, so don't throw it out if you're into keeping such things.
