Anybody know what size screws are needed to secure the drive cage/carrier to the iMac G4's chassis? I bought a parts iMac G4 recently, and it did not include the drive carrier. I bought a carrier on eBay, but it did not come with screws... Go figure.

Anybody know what size screws I need?

Peace,
Drew

Ha! Nice title. Close, bu

Ha! Nice title.

Close, but no cigar. I need the screws that secure the carrier to the case, not the screws that secure the hard drive to the carrier. WLM has lots of screws on their site, but I have two problems: 1) They don't (explicitly) indicate which ones I would need to secure the carrier. 2) Their prices are crazy. $20 for a pack of 4 or 5 screws means at least $4 per screw! Ouch.

I'm guessing that the right ones would be these: http://www.welovemacs.com/9224707.html

Which means I'm looking for M3.5x0.6, 8mm long.

Peace,
Drew
