Title: Mounting apparatus with rotating member for retaining and buffering data storage device

Abstract: A mounting apparatus for mounting a data storage device includes a sliding member, a drive bracket, and a rotating member. The drive bracket includes a first side plate. A sliding groove is defined in the first side plate. The sliding member is received in the sliding groove. The rotating member is pivotally mounted to the first side plate. A curled piece and an arm are located on opposite ends of the rotating member. The arm defines a restricting room. The rotating member is adapted to rotate on the first side plate between a first position and a second position. In the first position, the curled piece abuts the first side plate and is elastically deformed by the first side plate, and the sliding member is disengaged from the restricting room. In the second position, the curled piece is released, and the restricting room receives and restricts the sliding member therein.
