Inside the Disk Drive Chassis

Lifting the top off of the disk drive housing exposes a battery compartment. Accessible from a door on the top of the unit, this compartment holds six C-cell batteries.

Below the battery compartment is the disk drive mechanism itself, which you'll see more of in a moment.
