So i am working on a new case and had ordered this for my drive bay http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=4177. Problem is that the current screws that you normally use for a metal bay are way to short to go through the 8mm of acrylic. No problem, i go to the local Home Depot look for some longer screws but they didn't have any and the employee had no idea what kind of screws they were.
So my problem?
What type of screws do you use for DVD/CD drives?
My whole project has stalled because i dont have the right kind of screws for my drives.
I found out the screw is a metric M3 screw, while HDDs use 6-32 as well as several other things. Was able to find enough screws at a Lows store to get me buy, but they were expensive, so i ordered the rest online for a lot cheaper, I don't know why America has to be the only country with weird measuring system, everything should be metric, make it much easier to get stuff done.
