Making My Own Rig: Stealth Cover for DVD Drive

Stealth Cover DVD drive
Alright so Number1Dad told me to try to do a stealth DVD Drive, so I am doing that right now

First thing I did was take the Drive Slot Plate and sand the snap-ons down.

Next thing I did was sand the hell out of the slot plate so it will easily move in and out of the DVD drive slot. Afterwards I used the handyman's secret weapon and some folded paper to fill up the empty volume of the slot. This way the DVD Drive and the plate will actually touch each other.

Also make sure to put some folded tape/paper in the area that the dvd open/close button is located. This way when you press the slot cover with your fingers, the DVD drive will actually open.

Then take some velcro strips (That red cathode kit gave me tons of it lol. I used the last strips I had), and put them on the cover of the dvd drive. You will have to unscrew the DVD drive and move it back a bit inorder to make the slot plate level with the front computer cover.

And whala your done :lol:

If you are wondering why the bottom plate under the DVD drive is missing, it is because it was interfering with how the dvd drive closes. I have to sand that down a bit. :mad




Looks good man. I let my neighbor borrow my DVD-R drive and I took his, so I'm looking at this black wart on my otherwise beautiful case. Driving me nuts. As soon as I get off my ass and get some batteries I'll post some of my gaming gear.
