I think I went down this path partially before and then stumbled.

I didn't find a direct match for: "BU40N 1.03MK"

I found two so far
1) HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-1.04-NM00500-212005061142.bin in the Mk-firmware-pack

2) HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-1.03-NM00000-211810241934 which is from the "All you need firmware pack"?

Do I use one of those?

Thanks for the help!

Thank-you that worked.

I was able to use MakeMKV now on an UHD disks. I also paid for the copy of MakeMKV.

Does anyone know if there is a ROM that is safe to flash to this drive to make it AnyDVD friendly as well?

No, there isn't one. Slim drives cannot be made "friendly" for AnyDVD usage.
Cheers :D

Ok thanks! I can now rip mkv files for our NAS from our UHD disks so I am happy with that!

I really appreciate the help and the great software :)

Hi,

I made a mistake.

I flash my BU40N Lg Drive directly to the 1.04 original firmware.

I need to flash it with the HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-1.03-NM00000-211810241934.bin firmware or with the HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-1.04-NM00500-212005061142.bin firmware.

I get the same message :
"ChekSum is mismatched.
Drive will go to boot mode
Please retry again."

I didn't manage to flash it with downgrade tool (Both with Friendly Firmware Pack and Downgrade Enabled Firmware V.2)

I didn't understand clearly if it is finally possible or not.

Can you please make me see the light ?

Cheers.

"enc" is for "encrypted", all right.

But what do I do ?

I have to use SDF tool ?

Allright,

I follow the tutorial under "How to flash[...] and commands", at viewtopic.php?f=16&t=19634#p74718, recommanded here.

I copied the firmware to the c: root, open cmd in "execute" (not Powershell) and write :

"cd C:\Program Files (x86)\MakeMKV

makemkvcon64.exe f --all-yes -d E: rawflash enc -i C:\HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-1.04-NM00500-212005061142.bin"

where "E:" is MY path drive (be careful).

And it flashed ! :D

Thank you very much, guys, and see you. :)
