Help Finding an Slim ODD

Post by josepr » Mon Jul 30, 2018 11:45 pm

I have a case with a slim slot avaliable and looking for a slim internal bd drive that supports UHD.
I see in the list the LG line of BU30N, BU40N, BU50N the only one that is marked as friendly the 30N i can't seem to find anywhere.
Can i buy a 50N or 40N and will it work? Could i flash it to make it work? Are there any other slim drives that are UHD friendly?

This is where a SATA > USB enclosure comes in handy.

I currently have two Asus drives in VANTEC USB 3.0 enclosures. But I would like to be able to add a slim drive to the PC so I could rip three UHD BD titles concurrently. I'd rather get an internal one if possible then another drive in an external case. Because it's much cheaper for the internal drive.

Although I should have picked up a third Asus in MAy, when they still had a $25 rebate. I recently replaced my three 3th/4th gen Core i5 PCs with 8th Gen core i5 PCs. But they all have slim DVD drives in them. And I haven't used a DVD drive since I started ripping my BDs in 2009.

I was looking into this myself. Best I could find was this: https://www.impactcomputers.com/bu30n.html

Take note that it's a supposedly refurbished unit and, well, I don't know anything about that site. Purchase at your own potential peril.

If that's a picture of the actual drive I'd just skip it, far too old. .

The BU40N is a 'UHD official drive'... un-friendly.
