Re: Lawrence of Arabia

FWIW, check of just LOA from the Columbia Classics 4K set worked via Backup for both Discs 1 & 2. Received mine from stock from Ingram Entertainment in Ohio. My other resource didn't work for Backup.

Re: HL-DT-ST_BD-RE BU50N

Riplock is currently not enabled for any drive outside of testing at least. It will eventually be enabled/released and support announced. Thanks for that information. That is reassuring! I've never had a drive I thought was really handicapped, but I've read lots about folks changing firmware to fix...

Re: HL-DT-ST_BD-RE BU50N

It’s a currently supported drive. Read the guide for the current and more popular supported drives: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=19634 The forum search will also return dozens of discussion regarding that drive. Yes, I get that much, that's why I bought it, really. Just wonder...

Re: HL-DT-ST_BD-RE BU50N

BTW, Just wondering...

I've got a new WH16NS60, it works great with my PowerDVD, and I don't want to change that. But, why does it not throw a firmware rip as the BU50N did when trying to Backup my Alien disk with makeMKV? Is that because it is already in the database?

Re: HL-DT-ST_BD-RE BU50N

You should have gotten a message like "saved FW dump as FW_xxxxxx.tgz. Please send this file ..." Can you please check your MakeMKV data directory if you have any files named like that? You need to actually open a disc with this drive to get a FW dump. Got it! I think I've attached the right one. d...

HL-DT-ST_BD-RE BU50N

What is this really? It has stickers that say it was made 23 July 2016 by Hitachi-LG. I've tried the Hitachi ODD Auto Firmware Updater, it just reports the firmware is up to date. From the info screen from makeMKV, I see this: OS device name: \Device\CdRom0 Current profile: BD-ROM Manufacturer: HL-D...
