Yes. It's is replaced in some models by weight saver.
So you can just replace these weight saver with the DVD+/-RW Double layer Super Multi Drive (includes cable, bezel, bracket, screws).
They are having HP part number 779456-001.

Go through Page 1, 2, 16, 18, 32, 33 in this service manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04341799.pdf

Hello,

 

For your particular model (J2V78UA), you cannot add an optical drive to the notebook as it never with one specifically. 

 

To verify I removed the cover from the 15-f009wm model and attempted to add one myself. *please see pic*

Make it easier for others to find solutions, by marking my answer “Accept as Solution” if it solves your problem.

So unless you open up & see what's in there in each of the models out there in the market, nothing can't be decided, right?
These manuals are just for namesake I suppose.

 

@FuturePerfect Thanks for the update & correction, appreciate it!

So was it possible to do after you got the port open or no?
