Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q865, bluray upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q865 from a member here on OCN.

My question is do you guys think I can put a BluRay drive in this?



I have seen several Qosmio's of the same generation with the Bluray option.



If its possible how do I go about doing this? Where can I get a drive at?

I'd give Toshiba a call honestly, or see if you can find specs on the lappy mobo. I'd assume you can install one, but it'll just have to fit the drive bay (obv lol) but if Toshiba says its possible, see if they'd sell you the b-ray drive that are on the newer models.

Could buying (or assembling) an external Blu-Ray drive be an option? That would at least allow you to rip movies to your Notebook for when you're on the go.

Yes you can upgrade blue ray. Take the back covers off and you will see 1-2 screws to get the ODD out.
