Remember that the 600 requires 12.7mm drives and I suspect the 770
probably uses 17mm. The thinner ones always seem to be a size
behind, for pretty much the same price (i.e. when I got my 6.4 from
Bill, the 8.x was available in the thicker drive).
I've got two drives in my 600 now, at the cost of no internal CD,
although I could swap around.
