How to remove DVD drive on Toshiba P770D laptop ?

How you remove DVD drive on this Toshiba laptop? There's one screw but after it's removed the bay will still not pull out.


Does anybody know if the entire back side has to be unscrewed?


Or does the keyboard specifically have to be removed in order to remove the DVD drive because there's a screw also inside?

Turn on the computer, eject the DVD drive, then shut down.  Flip the laptop over, and remove the battery.  Remove the screw to the left of the Toshiba sticker(screw is flush compared to the other screws).  Pull outward on the DVD drive, and it should pull right out with little effort.
