Underneath the drive there is sticky rubber feet. At the rear were the power plugs in gently use a small flat head screw driver and prise the flat rubber support feet away from the base of the drive. Store them with the sicky side up so no dust or dirt gets on them and they will stick back on quite easy.

You will see underneath where the rubber feet was, 2 small star head screws which can be removed with a small star head screw driver.

When you have done this the top of the drive can be prised off with a plastic tool or something like a credit card. When you get it started work your way around and it will snap all the clips out which holds it together.

Be very careful when pullings aparts as there is some fine cables that are stuck down the cables can be gently pulled away from the top of the drive. Do not you steel screw driver to prise apart or you will damage and mark casing.

Then at the back off the drive there is a metal sheild that needs to be taken off at this stage you can prise tge sata connector of the pioneer drive and fit BW-16D1HT drive.

Thank you, 😊
Thank you for the detailed instructions! I replaced the drive, added the new firmware thanks to this link:

TLDR: Buy internal or external ASUS BW-16* drive and do not update its firmware. Warning: ASUS BW-16D1X-U (external USB3 model) does not read UHD discs AT ALL. In fact, when I opened up the enclosure, I found that the drive is actually a Pioneer BDR-209MBK. So don't buy just any BW-16* drive, make ...

Re: HD-DVD Help

ricer23 Thank you so much for posting your experiences! I was having similar trouble ripping HD-DVDs with my Xbox 360 drive. I'm on Windows 10 but I was running into the same issue and it seems to have fixed itself after I reverted to MakeMKV 1.9.9. I successfully ripped Serenity just now. This is t...
