    Small screws for slim cd/dvd drive

    Just got my slim cd/dvd drive from ***********, went to mount it and it uses really tiny screws.. i have none that size, haven't ever seen any that size and can't complete my project till i find them. would Radioshack have something that small or is it something specialized?

    If you can find the thread pitch, McMaster has a lot of hardware (their machine screws start at size #2-56), and they ship very quickly.
