Re: Manufacturing Defects as Protection?

If I recall correctly I think it was a combination of both. I think I filled out some form on their page. After a few back and forth "troubleshooting" steps via email I think they called me to finish troubleshooting and gathering information. Of course I couldn't tell them that the problem was that...

Re: Cross flashing a LG16NS60 to BU40N

Isn't the bu40n a slim drive? If so, please don't do that. I'm not positive but I believe flashing desktop dive firmware to a slim drive can brick it. That would be very unfortunate. Some of the other guys will hopefully chime in that know more than I do on this subject but please don't do this unt...

Cross flashing a LG16NS60 to BU40N

I tried flashing the LG16NS60 to a BU40N using the ASUS modified flasher and DE_BU40N_1.00.bin to no avail.
It reports failure #5. Is it possible to do this, if so how? I have an extra LG16NS60, and thought it would be nice to have an alternate drive.
Thanks for any help.

I always use my NS60 official drive on fw 1.00 with MakeMKV. Works great.
I changed the FW on my LG16NS40 1.02 to LG16NS60 1.00, and it ripped fine. Thank you for the help.

Re: Mask of Zorro UHD (Amazon US)

I was wondering what drive you are using to rip this movie? My LG16NS40 F/W1.02 chokes on it, have tried multiple cleanings. Maybe I should get a different copy. Are different drives less prone to read errors?

Case for BU40N

Is there a case for this drive to be used with my laptop, with it’s own power supply. From what I have read USB doesn’t provide enough power.
Thank you for in advance for any help.

I found title 800 by clicking each title one at a time on the left hand side, then on the right hand screen it will show which is title 800. Deselect all the other titles

I got the new Doctor Sleep UHD disc from Redbox. MakeMKV failed to open the disc. Where can I submit the dump file?
I hope that isn’t a valid email address.

Re: 4K movies from the UK

Not sure where you've got the idea about flicker :shock: , but no, there won't be any flicker or any issues whatsoever. Unlike DVDs and standard Blu-rays, the 4K UHD Blu-ray specification doesn't have regional restrictions so they will play just fine, even directly in your 4K player (if you have on...

4K movies from the UK

I will being going to the UK on holiday soon, and was wondering about getting 4K movies while there, as some aren’t available here. If I rip to a file will they play ok on my system in the states? My understanding is there may be some flicker. Can anyone confirm this?
Thank you for any information.

Re: Alien 40th Anniversary problems -- disc or drive?

I have successfully ripped just the movie using the same drive. Sometimes you need to clean the disc multiple times, as some discs are very finicky.
