Can the OPTICAL (DVD/CD) drive be user swapped out/changed in the Pavillion P590-0066? To Bluray?

Pavillion P590-0066
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can the included Optical (DVD/CD) drive in the Pavillion P590-0066 (on this model the tray spits out vertically, not horizontally) be taken out and replaced with a BluRay drive instead? Or can it not be replaced? I'd like to have a BluRay writer, and would rather have an internal one than an external one.

 

I've seen posts about adding hard drives, but nothing about the included optical drive.

Can it be taken out and replaced with an aftermarket internal BluRay writer (such as by LG, Asus, Pioneer, etc) or no?

 

And if so... what's the connection type (SATA? etc)

 

Haven't opened up the case yet (just bought it, waiting for it to arrive) and just wondering if it's at all possible to replace the current, included CD/DVD drive with a bluray drive instead.

 

Thank you!

I replied but found my reply deleted for some reason. I'll try again.

 

Computer is: Pavillion 590-0066

Model: 3LA87AA#ABA

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05999927

 

Somewhere at HP's website I found, under this model #, a generic "upgrade/replace" PDF. I no longer have the direct link because my post before was deleted somehow, and I didn't bookmark it. But the PDF showed (by pictures) how to take out and replace various parts of the computer (not the exact model, but it looked somewhat similar, and popped up when I entered the model #). How to replace/upgrade things like the optical drive, memory, hard drive, etc.

 

It basically showed how to take out the included drive, and insert a replacement drive (ie, if the included drive goes bad).

But since it was only pictures, it doesn't answer the question: if I can install a 3rd party SATA bluray drive there, or ONLY the SAME EXACT DRIVE that came with the model in the first place (ie, if it went bad or something).

 

Please help, people. And PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS POST AGAIN.

 

I just want to know:  can I take out the included DVD/CD drive, and replace it not with the exact same drive (ie, if it goes bad), but with a different, SATA BluRay drive?

 

Please help folks.

Thank you!
