I want to upgrade the DVD Burner in my 17" Envy Notebook Non Touchscreen 17-j013cl
to one either wth just a BR Reader (BD Rom) and DVD Burner or one with All functions ie BD R/W and CD/DVD R/W.
I have downloaded the manual and see I have basically two options:
Blu-ray Disc Read/Write with SuperMulti DVD±R/RW - HP Part no.
Blu-ray Disc ROM with SuperMulti DVD±R/RW Double-Layer Combo Drive
HP. Part No. 720246-001
I think HP Made a error with the Part No. 720246-001 , as this is a DVD/R/W only drive if you check the speck. I think the Correct part Number for a BD-Rom + DVD/RW is
Either way , I cannot fnd these part numbers availble to buy anywhere at any sensible price.
Could anyone suggest a compatiable part thats avaiable to buy somewhere (ie Ebay) - preferrably one that has the correct bezel.
Thanks in advance..

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums! The forums are a great place where you can find solutions for your issues, with help from the community!
I read your post about the Optical Drive upgrade, and wanted to assist you!
If those are the parts that were listed in the Service Manual, then they should be the only compatible parts that will work on the notebook. You can try to find parts from here:

Thankd for your reply. Sadly the link to the HP parts store does not seem to be working.
But I also suspect HP will want a "arm and a leg" for the parts on a laptop thats almost 5 years old and worth about $100...
Hopefully someone will post a alternate part that will "do the job"..
