Optical Drive Stuck?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I just opened up this Acer desktop I got and I'm having trouble taking out the optical drive. I want to take the Blu-ray drive out and put it in another PC but it gets stuck when I try to take it out.

Here's a pic:



I moved the green rail to the left to unlock but it still gets stuck at one spot. Back panel has no screws or anything either. I pulled out the hard drive no problem by just moving the green rail to the left.

Probably a really stupid problem but any ideas?

Can't pull it out, something definitely stopping it.
Also I checked the other side and there is no screws there either.

Dont know what to do at this point.
