Screw size for 3.5" and 5.25" device mounting?

Hi guys!

I bought a card reader and have a 3.5" to 5.25" bay adapter that came with my case, but I lost the screws.

Can anyone tell me what screw size I need to buy? I can't seem to find the answer anywhere as apparently I'm the only one with this problem :kaola:

Thanks!

  1. Try any screw you have and it should do the job (i mean any computer spare screw you have not a big 1/4" screw :P )

  2. #6-32(32 is the thread count per inch IIRC) for hard drives. These screws are used in electrical all the time :)

    M3 with a thread pitch of 0.5 for optical drives.

    Bring the adapter and a hard drive to the hardware store, they sell bulk screws, Make sure you get them SHORT
