Thank you for your response sminlal...I really appreciate your suggestion. Due to the way the drive bays are situated the bluray has to sit up against the flip door. However, after mounting it with the the faceplate still attached it got stuck the first couple of times and now seems to work okay. The case I have is the nMediaPc wood case that looks like a 1940s radio. The optical drive and hard drive bays are in a metal frame that sits at the top of the case.
