Slot load friendly BD drive

Post by ptr727 » Tue Feb 19, 2019 12:24 am

Hi, I have a slot load Matshita BD-MLT UJ265 drive for my small form factor NCase M1 case.

The UJ265 is not particularly friendly, and I am looking for suggestions for friendly slot load drives?

I also have a UJ265 that is frustrating me (not least an inability to go faster than 2x read speed within MakeMKV). I'm contemplating an external drive from asmcom (I'm based in the UK) as I assume flashing libredrive onto the UJ265 (if that were possible) is not going to make it UHD friendly. ... 484#p73484

I have a fanless media PC with a Streacom case and a Streacom slot-loading BD, which can't load UHD disks.

So I bought the drive you refer to from asmcom. Simple, just plug one cable into a USB3 socket and the other into a USB2 (though I expect this cable is only for power so a USB3 would do as well) and off she goes. Very painless.
