Hide Your Cd Drive!




About: I like to modify things, make things, and modify the things i make. im no math whiz or someone with perfect grammar, but i am good at making things. at my school ive taken the welding, machining, mechanics ...

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 1: Tools and Materials

the tools you will need are:

hot glue gun

Plastic pieces
cd/dvd drive
filler piece

Step 2: Slide It Back

slide the cd drive back so that the filler sits flush with the front of the casing(after cutting off the tabs that hold it on the casing)

Step 3: The Layout

the picture describes it all

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!

now you are done. now you can make everyone fall for your "cloaked drive"!

below are before and after pictures
