PVC Megaminx Screws?

My DX PVC minx came and I wanted to change the screws. When I took one out, I noticed that it was similar to a type d fat screw. According to a video on youtube (That I can't remember), the screw should be all the way down in the center piece. But, my screw was at the top.

Is this a new "type" of PVC Megaminx?

EDIT: There are two different screws, the fat one and a very small one that is like the one here:http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3030/2716507842_85ed7c60b8.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10497&usg=__nYvSjNwD-R8yHltkqdgiYgqqi2Q=&h=333&w=500&sz=49&hl=en&start=3&sig2=4GhK_QHiRawMNamXgkqEcg&um=1&tbnid=hUzfCcv-gaMRGM:&tbnh=87&tbnw=130&ei=O7y-Sb6tDdvFmQeh-u2eDg&prev=/images?q=pvc+megaminx+screws&hl=en&sa=N&um=1

It's the screw on the left.

EDIT 2: There's also different springs. And, my screw/spring set from 9spuzzles does not fit in the minx's core. The screws a bit too long.

EDIT 3: It wasn't because the screw was too long. It's because of the big washer, which didn't fit into the center piece.

Yeah, I also have one screw un-screwing itself. I have speed cube springs, but they are too long and are very different from my Type A screws.
