Step 1: Void Your Warranty
First you havd to locate the three screws that hold the case together and the plastic tabs. Take small flat head screw driver and break the tabs ( you don't need to worry about the tabs, the screws hold every thing ). The tabs are located in small slots around the disk space out side. The screws are really small, so put them in a safe place.
Step 2: Gather Your Items
You'll need a very small switch and a battery pack that holds two AA batteries.
Step 3: The Inside
This is what you should see inside minus the green wires and switch. Be careful, the hold swicth is not secured in, place it in a safe place too.
Step 4: Solder in the Power Cables
Solder two wires to the batery terminals and thred them under the battery case walls and out a pre-made hole.
Step 5: Batteries
Glue the battery case to the back and solder the wires to the correct wires comming out of the case. Put some electrical tape on the wires to make sure they don't short.
Step 6: Close Up
Put every thing back were it belongs and close up the case. Make sure that the cd reader is laying flat.
