Solved Smashed DVD drive Tags: DVD Drives Storage Last response: October 20, 2010 12:06 AM in Storage Share jkwonman October 10, 2010 8:13:31 PM So when the bay was open, I accidentally smashed it from the top, and it bent a little. Now the drive won't go in. It goes in about 1/2 an inch and comes back out. Can I fix this, or is it totally gone?
