Swapping my internal Sony DVD Superdrive with Sony Blu-Ray Superdrive

I want to swap out the factory slot load Sony Optiarc AD-5680H DVD Player/Writer in an iMac with a Sony Optiarc BD-5850H bluray writer/player?

It has exactly the same dimensions and SATA connections as its in the same family as the original so is there any reason why it wouldnt work?

Is this a good question?

Chosen Solution

My only concern would be drivers/software. Physical dimensions are one thing, getting it working is something completely different. If you have a software solution in place, then have at it. It should fit without any issues.
