Re: New LG WH16NS60

Thank you for the quick reply, Billycar11. I clicked the link you provided but can't find short version flash WH16NS60 1.02MK. I have downloaded the both Asus and LG firmware flashers and the fw v1.00 for the WH16NS60. Do I just put the drive in a compatible external enclosure and just update the f...

Re: Step-by-step guide for the best (IMHO) drive: LG WH16NS60

I'm glad new folks continue to enjoy my guide. Yes this guide is still up-to-date as of June 2020. I just updated the link to the new firmware pack (https://www.makemkv.com/download/mk-firmware-pack-20200415.zip) but it still contains the same patched 1.02 firmware file for the drive I recommend. So...

Re: Step-by-step guide for the best (IMHO) drive: LG WH16NS60

Thanks for the detailed instructions! It was very easy to follow. I did note, however, that the firmware link you provide is not the latest firmware package that Mike provides, and it doesn't include the 1.02 firmware. The correct link is: https://www.makemkv.com/download/mk-firmware-pack-20190911....

Re: Step-by-step guide for the best (IMHO) drive: LG WH16NS60

I just picked up a new WH16NS60 today from my local Microcenter store. It was manufactured April 2019 and came with 1.02 firmware. Like the noob I am I followed your instructions and tried to flash down directly from 1.02 to the 1.01 firmware you referenced but got the ‘write dram ng error”. Figuri...

Re: Correct .mpls for Independence Day: Resurgence

This is a correct answer from pieman. The flag difference is visible starting at 3'22" in the movie. Title 00 shows the Japanese flag. Title 09 shows the South Korean flag. Nationalistic pride shows up in the smallest inconsequential details :D To quickly find video differences in two mkv files, in ...

I agree and so your thread deserves a bump I think. My WH16NS60 is already "fixed", but AFAICT your steps are right on the money, good work.
Thanks.

Re: UHD drives

The WH16NS60 is an "official" UHD drive and yes, in my opinion, it is the best drive to have, when used with MakeMKV. I have never had any UHD reading issues when using my WH16NS60. I have done a lot of research and I agree, the WH16NS60 is currently the best drive to get for MakeMKV. Easy to buy (...
