Edit 2: Yes! Wii U <3 Icy Dock. But wait. Argh. I think it is being surprisingly sensitive to how carefully I plug it in. Boo. Everything really does seem secure, but until I took it apart and put it together 4 times, stuff didn't load, and errored one time. Right now it is totally happy though.. not sure what to think. Do you guys have any further recommendations for converters? They do need to be as close in dimensions to a real 3.5 drive as possible, because the enclosure uses 4 rubber bushings to just kind of float the drive by the corners and isolate noise. Other than that all that matters is those 2 screws.
Edit 3: No idea what happened, everything is working great now. Since one of the rubber corners was uniquely shaped for a bare hdd, I had to cut out a small cube of it to accommodate the Icy Dock. That was easy with an X-Acto. Getting the whole thing to slide back in and line up all 4 rubber blocks so they could cling to the corners was a little bit of a game, but just a matter of patience not difficulty. Sliding the case back together was much easier than taking it apart.
