No, do not do this. It will break.

Definitely not. I think it says something about that in the manual.

Well, to be 100% accurate, you CAN insert it, yes. The only problem is,
you won't be able to put it OUT. ;)

As everyone else has said no you cannot do this without breaking it. If you need to read the information on it you will either need to borrow a friends computer with a tray loading drive or buy an external drive with a trey.
