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: http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/2861/p4120101.jpg - http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/1782/p4120099.jpg Each piece spins about 45 degrees, but won't go any further... How do I fit the drive in? Images are there to show the problem, More about : installing 2nd dvd drive badge April 12, 2009 10:51:32 AM Twist the metal covers out with your hand like they were made to be removed. JohnnyMash April 12, 2009 11:37:34 AM 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
