Anyone have an image of the driver disc for BE16NU50?

Post by mwillbanks » Thu Apr 26, 2018 10:17 pm

I've torn apart my entire office, found the Cyberlink media suite disc but not the driver disc. I checked the Cyberlink disc for the driver. Apparently the only way to disable the Silent Play option on the BE16NU50 is to have the driver found on the driver disc. If anyone has an image or can make one I would greatly appreciate it!

That is because most drives (and a lot of other new PC hardware for that matter) do not come with a "driver disc" anymore. That is a thing of the past. Saves the manufacturers money/time to post it on their site for download if it's needed. Won't find something that the manufacturer does not provide. There is a likelihood you may have to reach to LG directly if there is anything that they do provide that turns this feature off. Or Google your way to success in case someone has posted a method to turn this off.

As LG states in their website for most of their drives, they are plug-and-play:

Thanks....

In the event someone else tried to go down this path, LG support clarified that the option cannot be turned off because it is plug and play and does not offer the ability to change those settings. For me, this renders this drive of use for blu-ray but nothing more.

You should never ever use any driver other than the cdrom.sys file dated 2006 or you are asking for trouble.
