try removing the drive while the computer is switched on, its probably just one screw or a lock mechanism, then after a few seconds push it back in place, see if the system recognises the dive..

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

well i would if i knew how, but i'm not sure.
i opened up the tray with a pin and closed it. but nothing happened.
i have a laptop so i wouldn't know the first thing about screws or locks.
