    I have two homemade slide cards. The last one I had was smaller than the dimensions on the forum suggested but it still worked like a charm but then... it wouldnt work anymore... it would pull it out fine but I couldnt grab the pin to re-lock it. The brand new one I made with the correct dimensions wont even pull it out all the way... any suggestions? No I did not "snap the pin clean off"

    So you can unlock the pin, but not lock it? I don't see how that is possible unless you pushed the pin too far to the right, pushing it off the tray's underside track that it glides through.
    In which case, i suggest opening up the top, the drive's cover, and the tray itself to move the peg back in position for the track.

    okay... thank you... I suppose I could be pushing the pin too far to the right... what it is is I cannot get ahold of the pin in order to pull it back to the left

    Have you taken a flashlight and looked through the front tray area, to see where exactly the peg is. That might help you aim where you're trying to get that slidecard to reach.
