Does anyone know for the Asus BC-12D2HT, which drives firmware can be cross-flashed to bring to read UHD dics, as mine is on 3.01 and not reading UHD dics.

I have gone through the Windows method for generating a dump file for my Asus BW-16D1HT but when I open the eeprom data mover.exe and try to select the dump file I created with DosFlash, it says "Incorrect firmware file." I created another file with a different name just to double check with the same results. Any suggestions?


Did you rename the file with the .bin extension? I missed that the first time.


I didn't have to rename it. It automatically created a .bin file. Did you have a different experience?

I did, but I ended up using the clean firmware files in the end.

For clarification's sake, are you saying that you can skip creating the dump of the current firmware on the drive and just use the download link on the forum? Because I read that it is extremely risky to do that.

Sorry no I didn't mean that. You have to download your rom first, and then the 2nd time you can use the clean firmware, it takes info from your rom, and puts it in the clean rom.

Okay, that's what I thought. I am trying to understand what I could have done wrong in creating the initial bin since the data mover will not accept it. If I can't figure this out, I am really hoping that foolproof method other members have mentioned drops soon.

Is there a no other way to downgrade the firmware? I just bought the ASUS BW-16D1HT with the 3.02 Firmware. My motherboard doesn't support IDE. I'll double check again but I didn't see that option.

I did it using an older laptop, in its bios it had a 'compatibility mode' for its sata hdd, which is IDE on sata. SInce you can boot with the Win 7 USB in op, I unplugged the HDD, and connected my disc drive using a sata extension cable available on amazon ~$5. Its not a simple way and you still need a not so new laptop, but thats one way to do it. I have done this with 2 drives using that old laptop.

If anyone is looking for LG WH16NS40 drives brand new with 2018 manufacture date downgrade from 1.03 to 1.02 or cross flashed to ASUS BW-16D1HT 3.01 as they say the read speed is faster, I have them for sale $85 including shipping. I can also do the ASUS BW-16D1HT drives as well but the LG's are more affordable with the same parts

Actually I take that back, if you're lacking in brain power to the extent where you'd opt to pay someone to flash your drive for you, rather than return it and buy an original no flashing required UHD friendly from me, then by all means throw your money away.

It's no secret that I sell drives, I just don't profit off of doing so.
