Hi,

Has anyone notice that there is a new 1.04 firmware available for the BU40N Slim model since 12/22/2020, and is it not the opportunity to make it become a LibreDrive one ?

Cheers. :)

E-Gwen.
BU40N 1.04 has been around since about August 2020.

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide Updated 2021

Hi great Marty McNuts. I have a BRUHD-PU3 Thankfully, your tool downgraded from BU12 to BU10 I'm very sorry, but I have some Interrogative so I'll ask you a question. The contents of BRUHD-PU3 is it Hitachi-LG-BU40N? BU11 is it friendly firmware? I can't find the BU11 firmware, where can I find it?...

Re: Newbie - Correct Firmware?

Hi folks, I'm familiar with BluRay ripping. As I can now lay my hands on a few UHD 4k discs I'd like to try and make my Bluray drive UHD friendly, thereby enabling disc ripping via MakeMKV. I've been wading through this thread and it's a mine of info, saw a few posts mentioning the 1.02 firmware bu...

Re: Confusion On UHD Firmware Selection

I recently bought an official UHD drive, LG WH16NS60. It has firmware 1.03. When I used the sdftool flasher to read the firmware I got this: dump_user_HL-DT-ST_BD-RE__WH16NS60_1.03_212005081010_KLDKAMN4800.tar I believe this is encrypted, correct? After much reading, I think I have two choices of f...

Yep, it can be flashed and yes it will be able to read UHD's.
Thanks @MartyMcNuts

Can I just use your guide (SDF tool) and select the 'enc' flag when I flash?

Thanks
Yep, sure can!

Most importantly...Can it even read UHD discs? Thanks all - details below Drive Information OS device name: E: Manufactu...

Or 1.03 I’ve been trying to get off the 1.00.

1.00 is good because it also works with other software, unlike the MK firmwares.

Re: Running OUT of SPACE! (UHD’s are MONSTERS)

Try re-encoding them. You can pretty much halve the video bitrate without noticing any loss of quality and save yourself quite a bit of HDD space. I re-encode all my BD's @ 8000 and UHD's @ 25000 and they look perfectly fine on my 78" TV. As always, audio is untouched as I like my ATMOS setup. What...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide Updated 2021

Hello, I just got Hitachi-LG BU40N 1.04. I have couple question before I start to experiment with flashing. For enclosure I chose Delock (Item No. 42595). I contacted Delock support and got answer from their developer that they flashed many drives (Pioneer, Hitachi, LG, ...), so this may be +1 to y...

Re: SDFtool Flasher

My motherboard does not have IDE mode, is there anything else i can do? Not really unless you want to send it to one of the flashers for recovery but it's not worth putting $25 in to a drive that you can buy a replacement for $50 Yeah, sorry, didn't see that comment. Just chuck the drive in the bin...
