Re: Can a UHD disc kill a drive?

Nothing revived my drive.

I reinstalled my original firmware, then updated it to stock, and latest version, and it still wouldn't read.

I've returned it under RMA for repair/replacement.

Hopefully this will be resolved soon. I hate getting duds!

Re: UHD drives

Do you happen to have the file you made, or my original. Or at least the likely file names? I checked in Asus’ site and it says in warranty until July 21. Maybe I have a longer warranty than I expected. I actually show in my email, that the purchase was made on October 9th last year, and thought it ...

Re: UHD drives

Yes, I did, the tried the MK again, and before posting this I tried the DE version of 3.02 again. Still doesn't read any discs. It's odd because it seemed to happen suddenly. It tries to read, but fails. Help! And thanks. It's dead I have seen a few Asus's fail like that all of the sudden they will...

Re: UHD drives

Did you try the DE version of 3.02 (not MK)? If not - try it, that's the one that helped me. Yes, I did, the tried the MK again, and before posting this I tried the DE version of 3.02 again.

Re: UHD drives

For a few months my ASUS_BW-16D1HT was working fine. Now suddenly it won't read any discs. Someone commented that UHD discs may have messed up the drive. Other people are talking about calibration data being corrupt. I've tried to refresh the drive to 3.1MK, and then back to 3.02, and there is no di...

Re: Can a UHD disc kill a drive?

I'm now having the same problem with my ASUS BW-16D1HT. I've only read maybe a dozen discs in this drive at all. I've now had it a year. Now it won't read any discs at all. I flashed it with 3.01MK, and it still doesn't work. Can you say specifically what firmware you used to flash the ASUS? I hope ...

Re: Asus BW-16D1HT Firmware

I finally did the 3.10MK firmware update on the drive, and it still can't seem to read a disc.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Asus BW-16D1HT Firmware

I gave a ASUS BW-16D1HT, with 3.01. It's worked fine with UHD, and other discs fine. I haven't used it very much, perhaps two dozen discs have been in it since I purchased it about a year ago. (And downgraded the firmware.) Now it seems to spin and eject any disc I put in it. I don't know what's cha...

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

So I was successful in downgrading to 3.0.1 with your help. Thank you. I have a few questions at this point. Since I’m down to 3.0.1, does this mean that I can just update to 3.0.2 without having to hexedit? Is there any real benefit to 3.0.2? (Of course not the locked one. And lastly, I’ve transfer...

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

Hi All, I too just received a ASUS BW-16D1HT with 3.0.3. While I'm pretty technical, I'm not going to chance making a mistake in updating the firmware from the dump of 3.0.3. Would someone " @Teddyraspin ?" (Thanks for your great work! BTW) create a 3.0.1 firmware for me from the 3.0.3 dump? I'd be ...
