You’ll need either the Asus BW-16D1HT drive or the LG WH16NS40 with the correct firmware. As for general experience on the Pioneer BDR-2209, works gre...

Re: mac 1.14.1 problems

Tried MKV 1.14.1 on my Mac OSX and works fine in ripping Blu-Rays and DVDs. I’m using a Pioneer BDR-2209 UBK and Pioneer BDR-207dbk and works well with MakeMKV the past 5+ years.

Re: LG BH16NS55 - no disc inserted

@vonMalm Not sure if this is the solution, try cleaning the disc by wiping it with a micro-fiber lens cleaner cloth and hope it works.
