W530 ultra bay won't unlock

Hello, I just got my new W530.  It has a SSD and a 500GB drive in the ultrabay.  I also have a W520 with a DVD player in the ultrabay.  I am trying to swap them.  The W530 ultrabay doesn't seem to want to unlock.  The gizmo on the bottom of the laptop does not want to slide for me.  Is that not an option because I have an hardrive?  Is there a screw I need to take out?  Thanks for your time.

There are 2 sliding switches for the Ultrabay. First, you need to slide the one close to the edge from the lock to the unlock position. Then, while holding that switch, you can slide the bigger switch to slide the Ultrabay drive out of the system.

Your correct there are two sliding switches.  The first one won't slide to unlock the ultrabay in order for the second to slide the ultrabay out of the laptop.

Ah, okay. In that case, is there a screw around a centimeter away from the slider in a direct line? Unscrew and remove it, and it should work just fine. Just make sure you take out the closest screw to the slider, not the one next to the edge of the case.
