    does anyone know anything about putting a dvd player into one of the drives. I first removed the plastic flap, then I encountered this metal cage in the drive and I can't take it out. It just slides back and forth, in and out, but never actually comes out of the drive space. I don't know what to do. I'm so frustrated. They should make it so you can just pull the metal cage thing out and then put the dvd burner in. Please help, and if it makes it any easier, my computer is a compaq presario, windows xp.
    Please respond to my question. Thank you.

    Had the same problem installing a drive in my sisters pressario (may be an older model than yours about 4 years).There should be plastic clips on either side of the cage which you need to press to release it. These clips belong to two runners which you remove from the cage and press on to the side of your drive, when you insert the drive into the bay you should hear a click when the drive is secure.PS.My sisters pressario had a blue cover attached to the front casing which i had to remove first.

    I've already installed the dvd burner inside the computer. Thank you so much for the help.
