On a rare occasion I use DVDfab, if I can't get MakeMKV to work, but I have another drive that I can use, albeit, not UHD.
if you want to use it with that go to WH16NS60 1.00 and it will work with both

Please read the 1st post of this thread for the drives that will allow you to rip / backup your 4K discs. You can also buy any one drive from that list and put it in an external enclosure.

No, none of those Archgon's are compatible. Only the MD-8107S-U3YC-UHD is capable as it contains a BU40N drive inside.
Cheers :D

But From Amazon : ‎MD-8107S-U3YC-UHDB-S "Archgon Style UHD External 4K-Ultra HD Blue BD Player, Blu-ray BDXL Burner for PC USB 3.0 USB-C, M-Disc, Native 4K USB UltraHD BluRay Players, Protection Box, Alu Silver"

An Amazon user said that "The Style has an LG brand BD-RE BU40N, the Star a Pioneer BDR-UD04. The Star is better in compatibility and quietness."

So if it's true that the Style has the BD-RE BU40N I can rest assured that it's compatible with makemkv for backing up my 4K?

Yes, the model(s) containing a BU40N are 4K compatible. The Pioneer's are not.

DE_LG_BU40N_1.00 is the best for your drive.

Thank you so much!

I succeeded and it works fine. (I'm trying right now to back up Blade Runner Uncut 4K).

So we can say that this MD-8107S-U3YC-UHDB-S works great.

Again thank you very much!
