Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

While I can still go old school if required, I did email the company to see if they would permit the usage of their tool to create the custom WinPE image and host it. I fully expect to be told HELL NO but it never hurts to ask. It'd be a much faster way of doing things if they'd allow it.

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

I can make one old school if I need to. Takes longer and is a bigger pain in the ass to do but it can be done the old way. If I get time this week I'll see what I can do.

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

Whatever you decide, please check the NS40's SVC code before you put it in the machine and make SURE it's an NS50 drive before flashing it. There's a DE and MK firmware for the NS50 should it end up being compatible. The MK 3.10 ASUS firmware is what I run on my BW-16D1HT and it works great in both ...

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

I'll see if I can create the image this week when I get a chance. Busy day today so won't be today most likely unless I get around to it tonight.

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

Nice. Well, we'll see what Billy says on that idea. Then we could create a "NS40 non NS50 svc code: RECOVERY" thread, link the ISO image with very simple rufus instructions to create the USB media with it, and then detail the 4 steps required to recover the drive.

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

Glad you got it sorted out. Yes that's the latest firmware for that drive. At this point please don't flash it again with anything else. Lol

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

I've seen the video but I can't get that far because I cannot get DosFlash to run. Does the WinPE boot disk have to be created with DosFlash or can I use another WinPE boot tool and create it? use the tool i linked in video to make a 32 bit bootable pe and set your bios to ide mode Yes exactly this...

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

I don't know what you mean by "created with dosflash"... dosflash has nothing at all to do with anything but reading and writing firmware from am optical drive.

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

You should read through a few posts after the one I linked to in that thread. Billy has a great video on how to do this whole process. You can't just use "safe mode" as that's not going to work. You have to create a USB bootable WinPE 32 bit Windows environment with the dosflash, data mover, and the...

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

It already supported blu-ray ripping. You didn't need to flash anything for that. If you're referring to UHD ripping, then no, your drive is too old. Also I've updated my previous post with what you need.

Re: Flashed wrong firmware and killed drive

While the drive model might be slightly different it has the same issue. I don't know the differences between the drives, but, the same principal applies in that if it does NOT have an NS50 svc code on the sticker, then flashing an NS50 firmware will brick the drive. Given the symptoms you're postin...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

is it only MK 3.10 that has the sleep bug fixed? I'm guessing this is what I'm experiencing with 3.01 that if I leave the disc in after a rip for an extended period the drive makes a god awful noise and pressing eject does nothing however ejecting via MakeMKV pops it out ok. Silly question. Where d...
