I found the Dell support website and find the manual which shows what's what.
Download or review the manual. I suspect since it mentions a HD cage, same for CDs, that you remove either some capture screw which the whole cage can be removed or you remove the screws to the lone drive. There maybe also some locking tab(green) that you depress it order to slide out the drive. dell, uses all these methods on various systems, so you have to figure it out. I leave you to that, click on link above.
Hello all. I have a dell precision 380 workstation. I am trying to replace the stock CdRom drive with a blue-ray burner. Right now I have it hanging out of the open case as I can't figure out the hardware puzzle to install it properly, The drive works well but is butt ugly hanging out like that. Not to mention destroying proper air flow inside the case. Anyone have a clue? Installing RAM and a 320 gig hard drive was a breeze. Short of using a crowbar on it. I am without a clue how to swap out the cdrom drive . any help appreciated .
I think I may posted this earlier in the wrong thread. Maybe this is the right one
