    ok here we go. here is a picture of the Uno HDD cradle which is suitable for use with both a 2.5" and a 3.5" HDD.

    with the 2.5" drive the hdd sits over the inner holes and with the rubber grommets in place it is very solidly held in place.

    LMAO i did the same thing when i got my Duo as i got it early december around 9 or 10 months after the Uno. it took me a few minutes to twig on that the cradle was for a 3.5" driver only as opposed to the one in the Uno.

    will standard hard drive screws work to attach it to the vu+ duo bracket? Becuase the ones you would attach on the horrizontal side of a hdd for a pc case look to small.
