How do I stealth my CD drives? I have a Cooler Master PAC in silver, and it is dying for stealth cd drives...I have the two pieces that came with the case that I have to remove to put the two cd drives in, shoud I use that? If so, how do I open and close it with those on?

You can use a few methods for opening it outside of Windows. The first is that you could do is attach a small extension on the button (like folded-up paper or whatnot). Once the faceplate is over the drive, you can put pressure on the bottom right corner (where the button would be), and it should eject. The other method is to bust open the CD Drive, find the switch that controls the eject feature, solder some wires to an external switch, and attach the external switch to the front of your case.

Yeah, what CalsonicGTR said. Another idea would be to take an appropriately long eraser from a pencil and stick it to the inside of the plastic piece over the cd-rom drive's button.

Good idea for a button extension.
