HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_WH16NS60-
no no no please dont give wrong advice if they flash a BU40N to a WH16NS60 its probably permanently bricked they would need to do dos flash recovery

Please don't listen to the wrong advise that has been provided. The recommended firmware for your Archgon is DE_LG_BU40N_1.00. I should know, I've sold a lot of these units.
Cheers :D
