    Sorry. I didn't notice that they were out of stock when I checked previously. (Maybe the weren't at the moment.)

    The Asus estore lists the screws:

    Screws not included.
    Requires (4) M3x3 screws & (2) M2.5x5 screws.

    (Metric screws).

    eBay lists one of the caddies at the moment:

    Asus G73J Hard Drive Caddy Screws Genuine Laptop Tested | eBay

    it appears to be RFE (removed from equipment).

    @ bobkn: Thanks you're a lifesaver., sometimes waiting on eStore to restock can take weeks, and that would leave me w/o a boot drivr. youhe caddy is for G73 but its compatible with G75. Plus I didnt want to buy caddy and screws separately. Its just greedy fr asus to pricegouge and then add insult to injuryby not including screws. I dont care that its used , its just a caddy. Thanks!

    @bobkn: I was searching for g75 caddies on ebay beforr u posted, not g73, so nothing came up . I searched again and found a seller /w multiple caddies (screws included) for $5 lesd than what you linked. plus the seller is in California and im in Oregon, so that makes for superfast shipping. Thanks again!
