Hi all,

I've just got a laptop DVD drive for my Efika, but it came without screws & I have no idea what thread pitch/size they should be...plus I've not got a thread gauge that is small enough to measure the holes.

Figuring there is probably a standard size for these, I thought asking here for some might be worthwhile.

PZ.

Re: WTB: Laptop CD/DVD mounting screws

I'd already navigated far far away before I returned to find out what had happened... :(

Oh & I'm fully aware that the "M" stands for metric :LOL:

Anyway, what I was trying to say when accidentally buggering up your post, is that I have hundreds of the screws you suggest, but I need ones for a laptop DVD drive. They are tiny little buggers, much smaller than the ones mentioned as for regular drives.

Re: WTB: Laptop CD/DVD mounting screws

Excellent, thanks guys!

DoogUK has offered me some over in my thread on EAB, but if he can't find them now I know what to look for :mrgreen:

I'll lock this thread now given the above, as it's no longer required :D
