I swapped out the DVD-ROM in my "new" Inspiron 8000 for a proper DVD+/-RW (dual layer! ). However, the plastic cover doesn't quite fill the slot, so I'd like to swap it out for the molded cover that's on the original drive. Can anyone offer tips on getting that plastic shield off without snapping it? I'm afraid to manhandle it. Thanks.
