All of the above reinforces the idea that we must see what MakeMKV thinks of drive model "X"...

Manufacturers are changing internals without changing model numbers. A BW-16D1X-U from 2020 is a different beast from a 2015 model, and maybe even a 2016, but you cannot tell from the label OUTSIDE.

The flashing tool would not open unless I ran it as an administrator. The Asus firmware would not flash onto the drive. I ended up using the WH16NS60 1.02 firmware and it worked like a champ. Libre mode is enabled and I'm ripping 4K discs! Also, currently ripping Solo: A Star Wars Story with no problems!
Win 10 has been know to do that. :evil: Glad you got it sorted.

Was it required to use the "enc" option to flash this drive? This is an important piece of information.

I do not recall seeing nor selecting an ENC option.

If "enc" for encrypted was not required I just don't understand why you couldn't flash the other firmware. Makes no sense.

I honestly couldn't tell you. I'm just glad it worked.

We have ro be more analytic when the next drive of this type comes again. Just to be clear how to handle flashing it in the guides.
