Re: UHD drives

My motherboard doesn't have IDE, so I may need a flash service. Any ideas for a flash service or a way to force IDE on a motherboard that doesn't support it? well there could be a way to enable ide mode on your motherboard if it is pre skylake but that would require bios modding and we are not gett...

Re: UHD Drive/ Latest Software?

it wont hurt to try but im pretty sure how makmkv decodes it for vlc is just like it opening a disk, if makemkv cant open it will not work. dvdfab player supports some official uhd drives but that one is not on the list and they usually need older firmware like 1.00 for wh16ns60

Re: Direct Blu-ray playback with VLC stopped working after upgrading VLC to 3.0.5

I did all the steps, but what happens is I can see my blue light on my drive going constantly and I can hear the disc spinning/reading. I started at 3:10 pm today and as I am writing this post it is 3:17 pm and still doing the same thing and not playing the 4K UHD Venom movie. Also on VLC there is ...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

I quickly looked on the website and didn't see a firmware update utility but that's gotta be me not seeing it. ...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

I got it today and it had FW 3.01, I can watch blurays with PowerDvD 18 and I was able to rip Venom UHD at 47GB, which was almost twice and big as the Bluray rip which is pretty good since 4K is 4 times Bluray LOL! I can't read the UHD disc with the ASUS, but I knew that I wouldn't be able to, but ...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

I got my ASUS BW-16D1HT on its way. Obviously I won't know whether I can rip/read UHD Discs, until it is installed and I attempt it. So just curious... Should I always do a firmware dump of the original/initial firmware once I get it, so that in case I do need to flash the drive I won't brick it or...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

Yes it can DVD, BD etc. when I insert UHD disk, it will do loud seek for long time then it just stops and drive reports that it is empty. i only ran in to one asus drive like that once it had a 8/18 build date and on the original firmware it would read everything fine but UHD disks but on any other...
