The Pioneer models I referenced have no trays or slots, they work more like portable audio CD players - you press the eject button to open the lid, and pop the disk off the spindle. But if the drive is unpowered (or otherwise doesn't react to eject button) you can just open the lid manually using the latch on the bottom of the drive. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/BKUAAOSwL...s-l300.jpg is a good image that shows what I'm talking about.

P.S.: and I was able to use the unit I have to burn a CD with PBP. They include cable that can take power from two USB ports, if necessary, but it isn't always necessary to use two ports even for burning. The drive also has a socket for barrel plug power supply, though they don't bundle any with the drive.
