I somehow misplaced the screws for a spare hard drive caddy.

Can someone tell me what size it is?

I know it is 3mm but what about the length?
There are three choices at laptopscrews.com.

Looks like about 2.5mm long.

My recollection is that they are flat heads but with a bigger diameter heads than the ones used on recent systems. If nobody responds by the time I get home, I'll dust off my caliper and measure one.

Yes, that looks like what I have (except mine are black).
