I am wondering, is it possible to replace the standard DVD writer in my G74SX with a Blu-Ray drive/Writer? I know that on some laptops you can do this. If so, what brand/model of blu-ray writer would you recommend?
Thanks!
Thomas

Yeah, optical drives are pretty much interchangeable commodities these days. Any drive that has a 12.7mm SATA connector should work. You'll need to remove the Asus faceplate from your existing drive and put it on the new one.
