T20 how do you remove the cd/dvd drive from ibm t20 thinkpad


Answers :

Good afternoon Lewis!
Close to the right rear corner, there is a small black plastic latch that needs to be moved to the rear. That will cause a blue handle to pop out slightly. You grasp that handle and pull. That should release the CD drive and allow for it's removal.
