Measuring from the connector end along the length of the drive, the
old one has holes at 1-3/4 inches and 2-7/8 inches. The drive I had 
hoped to replace it with has holes at 9/16 inches and 3-9/16 inches.
The drives are 4 inches by 2-34 inches; the old one is 3/4 inch high
and the newer one is 1/2 inch high.
