Hi

http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=1KU52UA

I don't know, however you have a 920417-012   GNRC ODD DVD-Writer 9.0mm Tray Flyers fitted.

 

I suggest you check dimensions and cabling, but I do expect that you will be able to achieve a swap.

Maybe there is a manual and driver in the 14 where used list that may help.

EG:     Click Here to see the list of HP Products that Part Number  509421-001 is used in.

 

etc etc.

509421-001 is a 9.5 mm drive and you need a 9 mm drive. The slight thickness difference is enough to prevent a swap.

Lil_Boy_Blue,

 

Thank you for your time, sir, but it appears that the swap cannot be done.

 

Good day,
