Ejecting the disk on the DVD writer in my desktop appears to provide
clearance, though it is only like a mm or so. The OS tells me that it is
a SONY DVD RW AW-Q170A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive, which, knowing me,
was not very expensive. ;-)
Lifting the disk straight up when ejected seems to clear the faceplate
of the drive, but not the faceplate of the ThinkCentre that it is
I assume that you have figured out how to avoid introducing problems
like that wherever you mount it.
