Question DVD removal

Oct 30, 2020
So I have this old ASUS laptop. On the back it reads X452L, Notebook. Into the main problem, I want to upgrade the storage by buying a canddy with a new HDD. However when I try to remove the DVD, the thing does not want to move, I removed the screw laying beneath the keyboard but still couldn't take it out, even with it open. I went online for solution but nothing help, no secret screws under plastic cover, no nothing. The only thing that is removable from the back is the RAM and HDD cover. Does anyone know where is the "secret" screw? Or is this DVD is non-removable?

I dont about that one but I'm pretty sure there is a small medal flap holding the DVD down using a screw (as I said before) screwed into a section of the motherboard. Also as said before the only removable section at the bottom of my laptop is the one that covers the RAM slot and the HDD.
