Are you sure it even has a Blu-ray player in it ?
You're spec's say otherwise.
It says you're running a HD DVD player which is the Toshiba high definition format and as I am sure you know, that has been long discontinued.
If you open up the DVD drawer you should see two lenses there and there will be a small "Blu-ray" icon on the DVD drawer itself.
OR do you mean is there an actual Blu-ray drive that will fit in your Dragon ?

I'm sorry I wasn't clear. Your second guess was correct. I am looking for a Blu-Ray that will fit the 9010nr. I am aware that the drive I have is an HD player.
Thank you for responding,

All laptop drives are a standard size and any SATA Blu-ray drive will fit. Remove the rear mount and bezel from you old one and mount it on the new one.
Here is a thread where the guy has done the same thing, Huffer has provided a video. It talks about a Dell and it's a little long, but it does eventually get to the part where the front bezel's are change out.
This is one from e-bay that will work.
It has been reported that the Sony Blu-ray drives are giving problems, but after reading some of these threads, it sounds more like a software problem.
When you install the drive and boot up, Windows will automatically install the driver(s) for you. HP Media Smart DVD is the only Blu-ray playing software that HP has to offer and it can be problematic.
I would recommend to buy some third party software form ArcSoft or Cyberlink. Keep in mind that Cyberlink makes the software for HP, so if you have problems with MS DVD then they may occur with Cyberlink. You can always use their trial first.
Here is a link to MS DVD, I use this on in my dv8 and it will (should) work in your Dragon.
Save it to the desk top and install it from there, not from a temporary folder. If you are using Commodo Fire Wall and/or AVG anti virus software, these have to be disabled before downloading and installing MS DVD.
If you have problems installing MS DVD, post again and there is trick to get it to install.

I have the HDX9300 and if it has the support for it in the 9000-91000 series then you can use any IDE Drive, be it the UJ120 which is the Blu Ray ROM/player I have which I got configured to order, or the UJ-220 which is a Bluy Ray Writer as well. I hope to get the UJ220 at some point.
