Re: LG BU40N PowerDvD playback

Yes I use the same steps on vlc to open the UHD discs, my doubt at this point is the startech enclosure that is not compatible, in europe where I can buy Vantec NST-510S3-BK 9.5mm slim sata case. Yeah it's not the case if you can open the disc in makemkv. If you are running the trial version of mak...

After 5-8 hours of use?

Re: LG BU40N PowerDvD playback

Run the UHD advisor I have tested the BU40N to work for official playback but powerdvd is extremely buggy and with all requirements met most times it does not work it likes certain versions of Intel me.
But you can do unofficial playback easy with makemkv + vlc easy

How do the Asus drives compare? Are they generally any better or worse than the LG ones?
They are rebranded LG drives so exactly the same

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide Updated 2021

Thanks for the reply. Can you expand on your post a bit? What constitutes "a good one" and what are the implications of not getting a good one? Thanks! A good one to me means no read errors if you don't get one of those you won't be able to rip like half of UHD disc you will be playing th...

The last time I flashed a drive was back in 2004 to play multi-region DVDs... It's ok if you get a Good one you have about a 75% chance of getting a good...

Re: Unable to flash BU40N, please advise

Hey Just wondering what steps you took to flash your drive? I have the same model and i'm unsure of how to find the correct MK firmware to flash. Did you just flash the one firmware from the all you need pack? yes all you need to do is as the guide says use enc if you have 1.04 with the bu40n 1.03 ...

Re: Drive used to work, now just spits out discs (macOS)

I have a similar situation where my working LibreDrive flashed enclosure stopped working and just spits out discs. I have an external OWC Mercury Pro 16X Blu-ray, 16X DVD, 48X CD Read/Write Solution which comes shipped with a LG WH16NS40 . When I received it at the end of 2020, I dumped the firmwar...

It is these two:

LG WH16NS40
ASUS BW-16D1HT

Those are the same drive

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide Updated 2021

Just made an account because I just installed a WH16NS60, and even though it came with the CyberLink software, I still have to go through all this DRM-cracking (for movies I legally bought) because my processor is a Ryzen and CyberLink doesn't like Ryzen for some reason. I'm hoping there's some way...
