What I'm looking to do is add a flip top window to a dvd drive and run it vertically in 3 bays. I've seen the window mod and was thinking of disabling the trays slide mechanism and hinging the windowed top. The part that I believe will prevent this from working is disabling the tray. I planed on just removing the drive gear and gluing the tray in place. I have never messed with a drive before an I'm not really sure how all the gearing works. If you have any knowledge on this I could use your help. If a flip top isn't doable I will just window mod it and eject it through the top of my case.
