Default How do you remove the CD drive bay on a Toshiba laptop?

I cannot figure out how to get the darn thing out. I'm sure it's modular, so it should be easy, but I can't find anything online about removing it.

Thanks

On the bottom (underside) of the laptop, there's a little flip switch you have to hold it and yank out the cd drive.

Are you really positive its modular? Do you have another drive your trying to insert?

Chances are if you can't figure it out that easily, it might not be modular. (It may be removable, but not necessarily designed to be hot-swapped).

If theres nothing on the underside, and no kind of lever or button on the drive itself, I can't think of any other way to get it out.
