Mounting Hardware for Disk Drives
Drives come in a variety of heights. You can install half-high drives that are less than 41.3 mm (1.6 in.) high in any of the bays. Drives that are greater than 41.3 mm (1.6 in.) high (full-high) can be installed in bay C or bay D. Bays C and D can each hold two half-high drives or one full-high drive.
- Mount floppy drive sized devices in Bays A and B
(floppy, tape, or PCMCIA)
Cover plates (sometimes called bezels) cover
the front of each installed drive. If you install a drive that
uses removable media (diskette, tape, optical disc, or
CD), you will need to change the cover plate.

The 3510, 56, 57, 76, 77, 85, and 95 all use the same HD Mounting Tray.
Hard Drives can be mounted with the mounting screw frame on the lower side, or the mounting screw frame above the rails.
