Does anyone happen to know what kind of screws are used for attaching drives to the drive trays? (For an 8200, but they seem to be pretty standard across models...)

I would have thought that I could find some workable replacements in the giant vat of odd screws we have, but no such luck - any that have the right threads don't sit flush enough to let the tray actually go into the cage.

Most, if not all, 2.5" drives use a M3 x 3mm screw. You can find some various head options on Amazon to fit the task.

The traditional 3.5" and 5.25" drives typically use a #6-32 threaded screw.

Thanks - the threads seem correct on those, but the heads on any I can find aside from what comes with them are too big and won't sit flush on the non-recessed side. I thought there might be some specific difference.
