On this instructable, i am going to show you how to conceal your cd/cd-rw/etc. drive behind the front filler piece! don't worry, it can still open, but it just creates the illusion that there isn't anything there.

Step 4: Glue It Together

after laying everything out, glue it together. when you are done, turn on your computer, go into "My Computer", go to the drive, right click it, and click "eject". as confusing as that sounds, it really isn't. its just really straightforward

Step 5: You're Done!
