Answers :

Based on the images i've looked on for the Aspire m1201, you don't need to remove the front panel in order to remove the optical drive. if there are screws holding the drive in, remove them and then slide the drive forward. if its held in by sliding latches and not screws, then slide then in which ever direction necessary and then push the drive forward to take it out.
