In case one has to RMA a dead drive that came with 1.04
If it needs RMAing, just put 1.05 on it.

Re: LG BU40N with Firmware Revision PH07

unfortunately I now had to notice that the drive has an unknown firmware PH07. Did you notice MakeMKV writing an FW_xxxxxxxx.tgz file for this drive? Should have been created on first disc opening and placed into MakeMKV data directory. Please send this file to support@makemkv.com I would flash my ...

I am trying to find a factory copy of the 1.04 version for a WH16NS40. I can only see 1.03 and 1.05. Would anyone happen to have a copy of that? Thanks.
why would you need it?

Re: WH16NS40 Flasher

Because the latest firmware versions SUCK!!!! Really, the latest versions are NOT BETTER in any way. Know this is the older thread but was looking into libredrive, and enabling... Why do the newer versions suck? Specific behavior, error, or performance? Would like to be informed to avoid potential ...

Re: WH16NS40 Flasher

Does this mean the downgrading is complete after flashing the second firmware (WH16NS40-NS50-1.03) on it or do you recommend to then downgrade further and flash either WH16NS40_1.02_NS50 or WH16NS60 1.02MK on it? I have not fully understood if the second firmware "only" restores the capability to f...

Re: LG BH16Ns40 UHD Friendly

Well if they didn't do the win pe dos flash thing right Like not move the cal data over by using the data mover tool they may have flashed a drive now with blank cal data so it will never read discs again now. But some people have reported success using someone else's cal data but that is on mt 1959...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Can someone recommend or confirm what kind of cable I could use to connect a slim/laptop drive to a PC via USB (mini SATA -> USB)? I bought an LG BU40N recently, don't have a laptop, was hoping that one of the two "approved" Unitek cables would work, but they have the full large SATA connectors. I ...

Re: BE-RE WH14NS40 which firmware to use

Hello, I have read the guide a few times and have watched the video. I get the process, just am confused about what firmware to flash to my drive. It is encrypted and I'll post the MKV info below. Wanted to ask before I tried anything. Recommended Firmware to flash for MakeMKV: WH14NS40 > WH16NS60 ...

Re: MakeMKV cannot see new LG BU40N drive

Hmm yeah that's quite strange maybe makemkv has some weird incompatibility with that usb chipset. Mike has fixed problems like that before on the nforce sata chipsets so it may be fixable but really it's probably better to just buy one from my list that is known to work with flashing so even if make...

Re: MakeMKV cannot see new LG BU40N drive

But does windows see a Blu-ray
Cd and Blu-ray use different lasers and perhaps a different way to talk to the pc because many usb to sata converters don't fully support optical disc drives and that seems to be whats happing with not being able to flash it and makemkv not seeing it

Re: MakeMKV cannot see new LG BU40N drive

Ok the real question is not if windows sees the drive.
It is when you put a disc in does windows see it?

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

I have an LG WH16NS40, tried to jump straight to firmware DE_LG_WH16NS40_1.02_NS50. Kept getting "Update Failure #4". I then started the app and selected mk-firmware-park-20200720/MK/HL-DT-ST/WH16NS40-NS50, then selected HL-DT-STBD-RE_WH16NS40-NS50-1.05-NM00900-212005061440, selected the drive that...
