Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

@ MartyMcNuts

No PM reply thus far, so I guess he's too busy to check & reply. I'll sign-in every now and again for any answer, but will continue with trying it myself. Besides, working up a procedure is good experience. Thanks (and to everyone) for the help -- awesome work guys!

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

I checked my system but no SATA - IDE mode in the BIOS . So the laptop is useless for that task. I'll have to wait until I dig out my old system, determine if it has the IDE mode, figure out a way to connect my laptop drive to it (probably an external adapter?), and go from there. Any instructions h...

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

The first thing I tried was to test the drives in MakeMKV . The flashed, flaky-drive was ... flaky, so no info of any value there. Then I re-tried my working drive (not flashed) -- "retried" because, before all this, I tried MakeMKV and it didn't work on the 4k disc. My good drive always could read ...

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

An interesting thing ... I tried my flashed-but-flaky drive with DVDFab (1 month free trial) -- the drive kept getting stuck on the starting reads (as expected). Then I tried it with my nonflashed-and-good drive. Oddly enough, it ran without UHD-unfriendly errors. I was even able to copy a chapter o...

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

That's right (I knew it was IDE-something)!Well, then, I might be able to use the laptop for the procedure. Thanks!

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

I was afraid of that. :O

I do have an old system (I think IDE was the key to using that method, from what I've noticed in browsing) ... but must do some digging to get it setup. Is there a best & fool-proof & up-to-date procedure, with step-by-step instructions, here?

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

As I couldn't find my original firmware online (so far), to restore it in case something is needed from it in my day-to-day operations, I thought to test this on same-make-model-year, but flaky, drive. And it worked perfectly! Thanks again for the guidance, guys! If I can find my original firmware "...

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

Thanks guys! [I'm pleased to discover I had noted-to-self your recommended threads ... and flagged the right firmware (for BU50N), but wrong updater (ASUS), from other threads.] Now just run updater "BH14NS40_N1.00-A4_patched", load the proper firmware "HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU50N-1.00-NM00100-211711211006...

Re: Heads up - Support for LG UHD drives

I've read allot on the forum ... probably too much ... and am confused about what belongs where. (Would "archiving" the obsolete/old-info/wrong-info threads help?) So, where do I stand with this (from the slim-drive label): HL Data Storage (Hitachi-LG) UHD Blu-ray / DVD Rewriter ROM ver: 0415 model:...
