Hello all,

I am happy to own a new ROG G751JT-DB73. After a few hiccups and an upgrade to windows 10, this thing is awesome.
I would like to replace the DVD player with a BlueRay player instead.
To keep it all compact and portable, I don't want an external drive. Is there a recommended Asus player I can use, or any generic drive will do. I recall a post mentioning the drive is connected with a standard interface, so swapping should be ok?
Is this correct?

Thanks in advance,
John

I Suppose you can upgrade.
My JT Shipped with Blue Ray Player. since its the same model its possible to upgrade but I am not sure how to.
I don't use one any way cause I don't buy blueray CDS.

take out your old drive and buy the same BD drive with the same measurements.

I appreciate your help and input. I wonder if changing the drive will void the warranty.
Thanks again,
JW
