CD and DVD were invented in Japan, and use metric mounting screws. My recollection is that they are standard 3mm screws. Any place that sells drives should have "DVD reader mounting screws" on hand. In the US, they will not know the size or thread pitch.
The standard screws for mounting Hard Drives, an American invention (although none seem to be made in America any more) are SAE #6-32 threads/inch. No one in America will know that either, they just sell "drive mounting screws".Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Thank you very much Martin! This gloriously solved my problem. I didn't pull the drive carrier all the way out. As in your illustration, they were hiding on the opposite side which is not visible unless you pull the carrier all the way out. People have told me the screws should be there and I thought they would be already in the holes for the 2nd Drive. Thanks again, I was going nuts trying to find the proper screws.
