Harddisks Are Very Shiny.

I was cleaning some junk when I found an old Quantum Fireball 40Gb harddisk.  Since it died I always wanted to open it and look inside.  Finally I got around to it.

It took a while but I finally pried opened all the seals, but I still could not get the plate off.  There was one part near the head controller area where there was a screw with a star head that connected the plate to the main unit.  I did not have a star head screw driver and I could not break whatever it was that held the plate to the main unit.  So all I could do was swivel the plate.
