4k Blu-ray Discs not showing up in Windows at all

Post by grnday5 »

When I insert a 4k blu-ray disc, it does not show up in windows or makemkv. I have no problems ripping standard blu-ray discs. When I throw a 4k blu-ray disc into the drive, I get the following info:

Drive Information
OS device name: D:
Manufacturer: ASUS
Product: BW-16D1HT
Revision: 3.03
Serial number: K9DI2NJ4814
Firmware date: 2118-01-19 15:58
Bus encryption flags: 1F
Highest AACS version: 65

LibreDrive Information
Status: Possible, not yet enabled
Drive platform: MT1959
Harware support: Yes
Firmware support: No
Firmware type: Original (unpatched)
Firmware version: 3.03
DVD all regions: Possible, not yet enabled

BD raw metadata read: Possible, not yet enabled
Unrestricted read speed: Possible, not yet enabled

No disc inserted


Is there more info I can provide on from my PC specs to see if anyone would know why 4k discs arent even apearing in Windows despite having a 4k friendly drive? I appreciate any insight!

Your drive is on an unfriendly firmware version. So the results you're seeing are normal. It needs to be downgraded.

I am super confused by all of this, and I just tried the new flasher tool and got this error https://imgur.com/a/ZQ4kfpI I picked the "flash_HL-DT-ST_BD-RE_WH16NS40_1.02" I thought that was all I had to do? can I get some other way to contact you so I don't have to wait for the forum for a mod to verify my post?

OMG it's really that easy? thank you. Just from reading the previous posts it was confusing me, because I thought like I had to do some kind of hex edit or something. thank you so much. It seems to be working right now. Thank you.
