Re: 4K Avengers Endgame error

That's what I was trying to figure out. What can I use to try and make a back up? The link in the error report doesn't tell me what to use. All it said is either dirty disc, bad disc, or failing drive. The disc has only been used once to watch it so it's obviously clean. And I had literally bought ...

Re: LG BH16NS40 bricked?

I have to admit I bought the Asus a few hours ago, it should arrive tomorrow already thanks to amazon. The problem with the LG WH14NS40 is that it's not easy to buy in Germany, there's only one place and it costs nearly 50% more than the drive from Asus and will arrive almost in february. ah i see ...

Re: LG BH16NS40 bricked?

How do I detect a defective drive? the problem I have with slim drives is the slow reading speed. At least I would like to try buying a desktop drive, if it doesn't work I return it and can buy an alternative. So theroatical speaking, if I buy an ASUS BW-16D1HT and it works just fine I'm able to fl...

Re: LG BH16NS40 bricked?

Thanks, but first I will try do get my hands on an IDE-capable pc. But nonetheless: I will have to buy a new drive if I want to read UHD-blurays. My old drive won't work whatsoever. So I'm asking: The ASUS BW-16D1HT will do the job, right? And no matter what firmware the drive ships with I'm able t...

Ok, thanks!

Unfortunatly, it appears that my motherboard (Asus Prime X370-Pro) doesn't support IDE-mode. Only AHCI and Raid... I think this whole operation won't work with AHCI, right?
Nope no ahci mode won't work,
you could send it into me to recover if you want it fixed

Re: Unable to Rip Avengers Endgame

Thanks, but that doesn't seem reasonable if I'm able to rip other discs without any issues. When I've seen this happen before I've waited a bit until the codes have come out, and then everything worked fine. Been waiting a while for this and still no joy. It is 100% reasonable it is different from ...

I received my WH16NS60 ROM 1.02 yesterday (manufactured 2019) , and have it installed in a Vantec NST-536S3-BK. I attempted to flash to 1.0 the drive opens then I get an error #4. Is the issue the enclosure?

Re: Ralph Breaks The Internet ripping issues

If that's the case how do I go about cleaning the drive. I have no experience with this type of thing. I don't want to buy another drive because from what I read the new drives can not read UHD disc because of some sort of copy protection they put on them https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php...

Re: Samsung SE 506 info

I have tried using makemkv, but I couldn’t get it to work with the samsung drive. I have tried using VLC with that method, but no luck so far. I don’t use the computer for viewing movies, more for making backups. I think that a updated firmware could make it possible to turn a useless drive (that i...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

What are the next to ULTIMATE drives, and are there known or suspected issues with new drives sold on Amazon et al? I am looking at some kind of balance between, easy, and inexpensive, including new vs used. Used on ebay looks about like half of new on Amazon. Flashing can't be considered "easy", b...

Re: BD or UHD no longer work

I know it's the drive because I've tried to burn about 20 UHD's and almost all of them have failed at some point If you want to continue to tell me that you test all of your drives fine but please don't tell they work perfectly because they obviously don't. 20 is definitely enough to call it defect...
