Can I add an internal blu ray drive?

580-023w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is there an internal blu ray drive that can be used with the 580-023w?  Thank you for your attention.

 

 

EDIT:  I want to install an internal blu ray drive in my 580-023w.  I'm not interested in any other ideas or suggestions other than a blu ray drive model number that will work for sure.  Thank you.

Hi JM2249

 

The HP specs for your product appear to show a standard CD/DVD drive. Verify it is not a laptop type device.The internal connections will not work and a standard optical drive will not fit in the chassis if it is an Ultra Slim CD/DVD drive.

 

You can still do this if it is a Ultra Slim device but you will have to purchase a compatible device.

 

You can swap in a Blue-ray CD/DVD reader/writer by removing the current optical drive. There is no place to add a second optical drive.

 

An external Blue-ray drive will work fine when connected to a USB 3.0 port.

 

Tom
