Pioneer BDR-S12UHT available with Vantec NST-540S3-BK. Vantec's newest Model with new

Vantec DX NST-540S3-BK USB 3.0 5.25" External Enclosure. Fitted with Pioneer 5.25" BDR-S12UHT now £176.99 minus 5% = £168.14 plus postage for all MakeMKV forum members.

The new Vantec DX2 model now uses a new updated communications interface PCB. The newly design PCB incorporates the JMS578 USB 3.1 Gen1 to SATA 6Gb/s bridge controller. It provides a low power and high-performance solution for optical disc drives. The JMS578 supports higher data transmission rate and lower power consumption than its predecessors. The Pioneer BDR-S12UHT fitted to a DX2 enclosure is brilliant combination with it's sleek and stylish design. Performance is of a very high standard and the quality of the Pioneer drive combined with the the newly designed DX2 is a clear winner.

When you now insert a disc in the Pioneer drive it reads the 4k disc within 2 to 3 seconds, none of these loud seeking noises for 10 to 15 seconds that you get with the Hitachi or ASUS desktop drives it just reads the disc immediately. I can walk away and know when I come back that the disc will be completed successfully and there will be no read errors. The same goes for the Hitachi BU40N which is also an amazing wee drive.

"What is LibreDrive?"

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 19&t=18856

The new safe method of Changing Firmware "Using Asus Modified Flasher"

Thanks to mike we now have an alternative method to flashing firmware read more about it here: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 16&t=18873

In some circumstances when Cross-Flashing and doing be-spoke firmware changes I would use command line raw flashing.

I would like to compliment my fellow seller
Martymcnuts
who developed the SDF Flasher which is an excellent tool and makes life easy for forum members.

Also Billycar11 has provided excellent technical guides and videos to help and assist forum members. So well done to my fellow sellers for their technological knowledge and their support to MakeMKV.

MakeMKV now supports official UHD drives such as LG WH16NS60, LG BU40N and others, which is currently being built on. Hopefully Mike will be adding on some new drives shortly :wink:

"Firmware Flashing"

Firmware Flashing advice free. I will do my best to point customers in the right direction as this is generally an easy task and one I do not like charging for.

Any questions or queries on firmware flashing please email me on

uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com

I do this as a hobby and have priced the drives as keen as possible.

All drives are brand new and tested for 4K compatibility after the firmware has been changed. This drive has been removed from original packaging and connected to my PC to change the firmware to custom firmware which makes your drive able to read UHD discs.

Drives are tested by inserting a 4K disc, and back in the original packaging. Other than that, it is absolutely brand new. I cannot guarantee you will be able to plug this in and play a 4K disc on your PC. It will, however, READ them. Therefore, with additional software (NOT included in this auction), this drive can provide you options to rip, burn, copy, etc, giving the potential to change a 4K disc to a playable file format.

Also, for 4K playback the PC needs to have a motherboard, monitor and hardware that supports 4K playback as the drive is one part of the jigsaw.

All drives are carefully packed to ensure safe arrival. In the unlikely event you should receive a damaged or defective drive, a replacement drive will be sent in its place. If the drive is defective it must be returned within 30 days.

At the moment there are two types of BD drives that can read UHD discs. The two types of BD drives are official UHD drives and so-called UHD-friendly drives. The official UHD drives do implement AACS2 protection, which means that in order just to read the data from the disc the software must present the AACS2 host certificate.

"Questions & Answers"

Q: What Firmware will you flash my drive with?
A: I will discuss each order or query individually with you and make you aware of what options is available to you.

"Payment Methods"

If you deal direct with me, I accept payment via PayPal Friends and Family Method. Payment is made by sending money to my PayPal email address which is as follows: uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com
I also can send payment links to enable you to pay by card. There is a 2.5% handling charge from the merchant Zettle for this service.

Drive Speed Comparison By Asmcom

(Look at incredible Speeds with Libre-Drive 6.0)

Hello Everyone,

I have been asked on numerous occasions by potential and current customers similar questions that keep coming up.

What is the best UHD Friendly drive? Or what is the quickest drive?

I would recommend using MakeMKV for software and hardware as follows. For full size desktop 5.25” drives, I would definitely recommend a Hitachi LG-BH16NS55 as my 1st preference and the BH16NS40 as my 2nd preference with both drive models being Cross-Flashed to WH16NS60 on Firmware v1.02mk. If you use both MakeMKV and DVDfab then I would recommend to flash the drive to firmware 1.00DE.

The ASUS BW-16D1HT is a very good drive on firmware 3.10mk or v3.00, v3.01 for old school and more compatibility with programs like AnyDVDHD, DeUHD, DVDfab and MakeMKV.

The drives that are flashed to Official firmware are 20 - 25% faster than the standard UHD Friendly drives. An extra advantage is that the drives have no sleep bug. You can read up what the sleep bug is on the MakeMKV website. For compatibility some customers will buy an ASUS drive and a LG Drive. There will always be 4K discs that the ASUS will backup and the LG will not and vice versa.

All UHD Friendly drives have the sleep bug, this is when a UHD disk is left idle in the drive for 2 minutes. Once the drive goes to sleep, the UHD Friendly drive will no longer be able to read the disk without opening and closing the disk tray and will make horrible squeaking noises until this is done.

The LG-BU40N and the BP55EB40 is another very popular drive and is very neat when coupled with the Vantec Slim Enclosure. Firmware 1.03mk is very popular with MakeMKV and if you use DVDfab then v1.00DE

So, with isolation and time on my hands I thought it would be a good idea to post a topic on drive speed comparisons. I have carried out these comparisons all on a computer with the following specification:

Dell T7920 with Dual Intel Xeon 8168 2.70GHz Processors
256GB DDR4 RAM
P6000 24GB Graphics Card
Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit

Samsung 970 EVO Plus
All drives tested below, are connected by internal Sata connection.

Over the next few months I will add on to this and post new comparisons. Please feel free to contact me and request a particular drive selection that you would like me to run a comparison between. The first drive comparison I have carried out is a Hitachi LG-WH16NS40 firmware 1.02DE vs Hitachi LG-WH16NS60 firmware 1.00DE


Please see below the new Eurpoean BH16NS40 SVC Code NS51 Cross-Flashed to WH16NS60 1.02mk LibreDrive. I have ran this test 3 times with 3 different discs of the same movie title. The results are amazing to say the least. What Mike Chen has achieved is very impressive and this is stupendous leap for MakeMKV

The new Libre-Drive 6.0 using the BH-16NS40 SVC NS51 Cross-Flashed to WH16NS60 1.02mk is 29% faster than the older previous version of Libre-drive which I will call Libre-Drive 5.0. Absolutely amazing, well done Mike Chen!!

Hitachi LG-WH16NS40 firmware 1.02DE vs Hitachi LG-WH16NS60 firmware 1.00DE

ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware 3.10MK vs ASUS BC-12D2HT firmware 3.11MK


Image



ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware 3.10MK vs Hitachi LG-BHNS55 firmware 1.04MK


Image



ASUS BC-12D2HT v3.11mk Cross-Flashed to ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware 3.10MK vs Original ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware 3.10mk


Image

A disadvantage of the Cross-Flashed BC-12D2HT is that you cannot burn BD discs. However if you are new to ripping movies and you are not worried about being able to burn BD discs, then this is an alternative solution. The ASUS BC-12D2HT is alot cheaper than the original BW-16D1HT. I have had no problems reading discs with this firmware variant.

Conclusion: As a second drive or a cheaper option. The BC-12D2HT Cross-Flashed to a BW-16D1HT might appeal to some.



Requested by Aloha: Hitachi LG-BH16NS40 Cross-Flashed to LG-WH16NS60 1.02mk VS Original LG-WH16NS60 1.02mk Optical Drive.

For avoidance of doubt and clarification. The test below was done with brand new discs, out of the box, as I purchased 5 of each movie title for testing purposes. Each disc was cleaned before testing as new discs sometimes have a layer of film on them. I repeated the test with a second new disc, however the results were the same.

Pictures below of original LG-WH16NS60 on Firmware 1.02mk

The Comparison: Hitachi LG-BH16NS40 Cross-Flashed to LG-WH16NS60 1.02mk VS Original LG-WH16NS60 1.02mk Optical Drive.
Image

Different Disc Same Story?
Image

Conclusion:
You would be better saving your money. I will add second test for this drive shortly as I am amazed myself!! Since this I have tested the BH16NS55 Cross-Flashed to WH16NS60 on Firmware 1-02mk and it actually performs better and is more reliable at reading discs.

The drive is more expensive to buy but the performance is better with difficult discs.

I was looking at the ASUS BC-12D2HT that you were selling on Ebay for £59.99. Wish I had bought one. They are not advertised on Ebay any more. I would like it Cross-Flashed to BW-16D1HT v3.10MK. When will you have in stock again and if I order here will I get 10% discount. Kind of cheeky but I joined MakeMKV to get my 10% discount. I would also like to order Vantec External too :D . Thanks Harry

Thank you Ironhand you are the first person to reply to my new advert of supplying UHD Friendly drives. You are in for suprise :D

Being the first customer to reply I will send you a Vantec Enclosure with Asus BW-16D1HT free of charge as I made a promise to myself that I would do this for first customer.

As for ASUS BC-2D2HT I am expecting a new batch of 25 on Monday. The price as went slightly up, I will have to wait and see what shipping costs etc.. before I put new price on.

However, I have a test drive connected to my computer which I use for testing it is 3 months old. I will offer you this drive for £35.00 plus postage to UK I presume as you are talking in sterling. Please contact me on uhdfriendlydrives.com to firm up details and payment if you want BC-2D2HT. There will be no charge on Vantec as you are my 1st customer on MakeMKV :D

Also a big thank you to Mike for supporting me on MakeMKV and working with me on new drives.

I'm looking to buy either a LG BH16NS55 or an ASUS BW-16D1HT. Do you have any recommendations on which one is better, or are the drives basically identical?

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WGC9e ... WtZ5ElSE5G A special thank you to Blackened & Czary2mary for producing this list

I would recommend for you to Purchase the ASUS BC-2D2HT as it is on offer and I can Cross-Flash to BW-16D1HT 3.10MK

Thanks for the reply. Can you confirm that the ASUS BC-12D2HT has the same specifications as the BW-16D1HT when crossflashed? Specifically, being able to read/burn all types of media is important to me.

Hello,

Just confirming your options of firmware, as you said reading all types of media was important to you?

Cross-Flashing BC-12D2HT cross-Flashed to ASUS BW-16D1HT v3.02

I would advise that if you flash your drive to ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware v3.02 it would support 4 Programs (DeUHD, AnyDVDHD, DVDfab, and MakeMKV). However you will not be able to burn BD discs.

If you flash the drive with Firmware 3.10MK LibreDrive then your drive will only support 2 programs (MakeMKV & AnyDVDHD). But saying this if you only use MakeMKV 3.10MK is best option.

I am here to help and support you. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me by ebay or at uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com I will offer you 12 Months Warranty on the BC-1D2HT CF to BW-16D1HT. These ASUS Drive are very reliable.


Kind Regards

Asmcom

Great price for the BU40N, especially in the UK! I had to get mine from US eBay.

Sorry about that. The first ten were promotional prices as stated. Ten sold out in 48 hours.

But do not worry I will have another promotion coming up in the future.

New batch of drive and shipping costs have went up.

I got amazing deal on first ten drives which I passed on to customers and clearly advertised this sale.

Sorry you missed the opportunity.

Please pm me anything else

Thank you for the amazing service. I'm in the US so I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with overseas sales but I'm sure glad I did. Your quick response and level of care is astounding. Within minutes of placing my order on eBay you contacted me to ensure I got the right product. Just a few hours after placing my order you had already sent me a reply with a picture of the drive boxed up and with a shipping label waiting to got to the post office the next day. Shipping took less than a week. I ordered it on Sunday and received it on Friday. Within minutes of receiving it I was already backing up my first UHD. Just plugged it in, fired up MakeMKV and it was ready to go. Fantastic!! Could be happier! I highly recommend you to anyone looking into moving to UHD's.
