    Get Pioneer DVD-115 slot or tray. They are the best performing DVD players on a market right now.
    Actually, their latest and greatest in the ATAPI slot-load version is the <a href="http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pioneer/CDA/Industrial/IndustrialProductDetails/0,1444,1742,00.html">DVD-106S</a>.

    Definitely a good choice for Auto applications.

    Finally found some M3 and M4's today. A few of the M3's in the box I tried did fit the Western Dig but most did not. For some reason the 6x32's fit the best. I don't think I rethreaded or stripped the holes in the drive trying the 6x32's because there was no shavings. I'll have to check the drive for markings. Though, now I'd be honestly surprised if it said M3 since I already tried those. M4's were too big.

    Thanks for the tips on the DVD, too.

    Cool

    For what it's worth, only use the proper screws on CDROMs, HDs, Floppies, etc. Most screws are too long and can damage the mechanism inside.

    Mounting holes on the bottoms of most drives I've seen are not open so bottoming out a screw into the platters ain't gonna happen.

    Well, after all that I went with the 6x32's by .75" long. This wasn't a regular PC case install, otherwise I would've used the regular mounting screws.
