Just about to fit a new DVD burner

Any ideas how to get the 2 mounting screws into the far side ?

Has anyone left it with just the 2 in the near side ?

This would NOT be a good idea as the vibtation it a high speed CD/DVD drive a very high.
You want as much fixing as possible.

There will be some way of taking off the other side of the case to get access to the screws.

it wouldnt have been a good idea. I'll look at taking the other side off as well.

You may need to use a screwdriver with a magnetic tip to hold each screw in turn if you find problems reaching the drive from one side.

As SuperGaz rightly states you need the drive to be fixed as firmly as possible.

Enjoy it when it's fitted...:-)
