replaceing optical drive

HP Recommended
HP envy 750-530
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to replace the optical drive in my computer (it's the thin type, like the kind they put in lap tops).  I am looking at adds that advertise 9.5mm or 12.7mm thickness. What size is my original optical drive? 9.5mm or 12.7mm, or are they all  the same size and tray front that's different size.

@kabasue , welcome to the Community.

 

Here are all of the components for your computer on HP PartSurfer: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=Z5M09AA

 

If you look at the section titled "Drive", it lists a DVD drive and DVD Writer.  It shows them as 9.5 mm.  Since HP no longer provides them you can use the part # to search for them online.  I have found ebay to be a great place to find HP components.
