It's a while since I've worked on a Sony Vaio Desktop but I'll help you as much as i can.
Now i take it you have managed to remove the cover from the casing exposing the internal metal framework that houses the hard drives etc.

Face the desktop towards you, on the left hand side there should be 2 screws holding the DVD in place, remove them screws. On the right hand side of the case there should be another 2 screws that are hidden from view look for 2 holes that run parallel to the length of the DVD drive itself and remove them.
The DVD drive should now slide out of the front of the case.
If its doesn't then you may have to remove the front cover of the case to slide the DVD drive out.
Look around the inside front of the case for holding screws (if any) and also look under the case for any screws holding the front panel on.
Once these screws have been removed the front panel should pop off enabling you slide the DVD drive out.

Good luck.
Removing the Side Cover
You must remove the side cover to access the system board, add-in cards,
power supply, battery, memory, and internal drives.
1 From the rear of the unit, pull the metal tab shown in the next
2 Pull the top of the cover away from the unit about two inches, then
gently lift out the cover.
