    I sold ths cd rom to another MR member a few days ago and thought it would be a piece of cake pulling the optical drive -- as I've dropped hard drives and ram etc., into these old babies several times past.


    It's stuck. I don't know how to pull it out without dismantling the whole machine. I thought it would be like two screws after the hard drive is out and voila.

    Instead the hard drive is out and there seems to be no online guides. The one on MacWorld has nothing on opitcal drives.

    No need to post on this thread. Me and California (Edit: California and I- some people would moan about this) worked it out by personal correspondence, and were able to get the drive out.
