If the Toshiba will fit a standard 1200 I'll put my hand up for it.

@davideo

the mounting points on the HDD are roughly at the four corners, 5mm in from back and 10mm in from front.
this means only 2 screw holes will match with the drive on an a1200 cradle and it would overhang by 20mm.

If it were me I would drill 4 new holes in the cradle.

@davideo

That's not an uncommon issue regarding the mounting holes my friend, I would simply use a nice chunky elastic band (as 1 of my A1200's), or as Imnogeek says just drill four new holes.

That's only cos TC has seen my Packaging! - I could imagine him opening "Kinelle" (my old A4KD) with Surgical Precision & then tried to copy it! :LOL:

But dammit, good packaging is very very important, especially with "Royal Fail" & "Parcel Farce" being our main delivering body in the UK.

Heh! :D

What's this "nearly", that is a proper pukka professional HDD postal box, don't be shy if it's better than kins, say so - it's not as if he would take it wrong :mrgreen:

oops sorry kin - I'm not worthy
