Re: Just Bought the Asus BC-12D1HT

It is not a very popular drive for this purpuse, but some have had luck with it: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/search.php?keywords=12D1HT So, if you can instead get one of the recommended drives where you live, do so. Read the guide for those requirements. https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php...

Re: Avengers: Infinity War key unknown

So again, this is occurring in playback for both the MKV container of the movie(s) and full folder structure? Is there any other PC available (with compatible/recent GPU for 4K playback) where playback of the exact same copies/files can be tested? Also, are you using the latest MakeMKV release/versi...

Re: Avengers: Infinity War key unknown

Have you tested play back on any other PC software player to try and rule out a potential specific software problem with the one you are currently using? E.g JRiver, MPC-BE + madVR, etc? Have you tried playback straight from the full folder structure backup? Same behavior? Or have you only tried pla...

Re: Recommendet internal LibreDrive for Mac running High Sierra

The same as everyone else. Read the guide:

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 16&t=19634

With the LG BU40N becoming more popular/recommended recently overall due to its reliability if willing to go external + enclosure under certain circumstances due to its slim profile.

Re: Need help remote flash

A very good point by SamuriHL. The LG drive pictured may be “flash-able”, but NOT the ASUS. The OP should provide the complete drive information for both to the person assisting with the flash regardless for proper assistance/advise.

Re: UHD Drive clarification for ripping 4K UHD discs

No, it will not. Drive manufacturers/distributors have patched the loophole that allows for UHD BD ripping on compatible drives they ship long ago. Hence, why the topic of flashing/re-flashing is still so actively discussed within the walls of this forum. If you are unsure you are capable of flashin...

Re: How to flash my BW-16D1HT?

You gotta provide the forum more information other than “it doesn’t work” regarding the problem(s) you encounter, so that someone can more properly advise on next steps. No mind readers here. What is the drive information as presented by MakeMKV? What firmware are you trying to flash it to? Was the ...

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

I'm assuming I did the flash correctly (above). If so, I have these questions, if anyone would be kind enough to answer. It appears to be correct, however, only YOU can confirm for sure. So, can you rip/backup/decrypt a UHD BD disc successfully on your end? It's the only way to know for sure. If I ...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

ok, I got my new drive in (B50NB40) and got it flashed to BP60NB10 1.00 HBD successfully, thanks too all for that. In the drive info of makemkv it says Unrestricted read speed: Possible, not yet enabled. Is that anything to worry about? I know it's going to be limited to USB speeds, but anything th...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

Yes, I did. I've read quite a bit as per my post, but all I've found still isn't clear as to if HBD BP60NB10 1.00 firmware will enable both libredrive and ripping UHD's. I want to think that is that it should be, but wanted to see if I could find out for sure. From my original thinking, I believe I...
