Re: Teardown for WH16NS60??

I had a disc get stuck inside my WH16NS60. I managed to get it out by using the brute force method and now the drawer doesn't close properly. When I do try to force it shut, I can hear the ratchet sound of the gears that operate it. Does anyone know of a youtube video or guide that shows a teardown...

Hey guys,
If I have a drive that ships with official UHD firmware (ie. bu40N) and I flash it for ripping purposes, will it still work with official disc playback on a PC via powerDVD, or would I need to flash it back to the official firmware?
It will still work

Thanks for the info. I assume that I will have to first flash the wh14ns40 1.04MK file, and than downgrade to the wh16ns60 1.02MK.

Or is it possibale to just flash directaly from stock to wh16ns60 1.02Mk. ?
go directly to 1.02mk

There is a 1.04Mk file for the wh14ns40-ns50 folder but the wh16ns40-ns50 folder only has a 1.03MK. you can use the 1.04mk...

There is actually a method to re-flash back to NS40 from NS50 without dos-flash, the option will be added to sdftool shortly.
Option to save bu40ns flashed to desktop drives too?

Re: LG WH14NS40 1.04 >>> ASUS BW-16D1HT 3.10 >>> LG WH16NS60 1.00

Ok..installed the 1.02 firmware on the WH14NS40 and it's working fine. I then installed MKV, VLC, and moved the files over that are needed to play the disc. And it's working! One more question, how do I know if it's in HDR or not? When playing the movie the codec info in VLC says "Planar 4:2:0 YUV ...
