I build computers, and there is box that you can buy that is full of screws, standoffs, etc. I know for certain that one of those sizes of screws is exactly what you need. Try checking out any computer supplies store in your local area and ask them if they can sell you some  6-32 x .15 Inch screws; they are used to install drives to the mounting brackets.

Is that the smaller fine thread screw that was used on 3.5 floppy drives or the small coarse thread used on HDD?

The one mentioned in the post is the smallest fine thread screw. I posted the link for where I bought my parts box from so you can refer to it if you need different sizes.

I finally got a chance to try the small fine threaded screw and it worked perfectly. I very slowly screwed it in to make sure there was no way I was cross threading it. I had no resistance. Perfect! But Sony I still want the original screw please.

Finally someone who has the same error as me!  I had the strange clicking sound too.  Sounds like a complete HDD failure.  I think our only option is sending it back to Sony.  You know, if that Fedex box every arrives...
