Having problems with the rails that came with the case. It's an Antec sx835II.

I can't seem to get the cd and dvd drives in. It only slides so far and then I can't get the hooks over to latch them in place.

Any ideas? Or am I just missing the obvious?

Thanks for your time..:)

Hi Suzie: the slide In Clips that go on to the Cd rom and Dvd Player- the round end should be at the Face Plate end - so when it slides in it locks

If they [Antec case] come with the plastic rails, which they prolly do, then the rails should be adjustable. Notice the plastic rails have several different holes in them. If your CD-ROM'z stick "out", then try adjusting the rail'z a little foward of the drive.

Actually I had them on right but I had trouble getting the push latch past the hooks in the case. I got it.

Thanks:)

Another question

Can I use the same power connection for the dvd and cd writter? Off the power supply the wires have 2 connections in series?

Thanks
