Wow. Great thread, MH. Yeh, I've looked in on your computer threads before. I've also sat in on a couple of advanced software conversations with you,
and I can confirm for these guys that you do indeed build your own.
But you're right about one thing: Sometimes computer disassembly is 'way overcomplicated. I've been tempted a couple of times to do exactly what
you've done there--and I have been guilty of some degree of brute force. But, boy--that's a beauty.
I don't know what to say about those tabs; that thing should slide out of there like it's on buttered rails when you squeeze those. But they have
teeny-tiny steel tabs that fit into the screw-holes on the sides of the DVD drive (in place of screws). If your . . . ahem . . . unfocused approach
has caused them to come out of their holes, the DVD drive could now be wedged and near-impossible to move. My technique at this point would involve
taking some strong pliers and cranking those little rails out past the DVD to release it. You may have to use a self-threading screw to refresh the
screw-holes on the DVD drive before you can use them again....
