ASUS BW-16D1HT - Failures after update

Post by Mtenga » Fri Sep 18, 2020 10:24 pm

Just had my second 161 fail after making it UHD friendly. Both failed within two weeks of being updated using the easy update options from this site on the ASUS thread.

Surely can’t be coincidence?

You can't generalize that. I also have an ASUS BW-16D1HT and I ripped hundreds of DVDs and BluRays, there was never a single disc which I couldn't rip (though to be fair I only posess two UHDs, but also hadn't any problems with them)

Define failed?

Running 1.15.2 my 16D1HT regularly insists there is no disc in the drive, yet 1.15.1 sees the disc fine. It happens too often to be the drive or coincidence.

Dead, deceased, passed on to the great drive repository in the sky.

Windows won’t see it anymore and there was no power to it. Now in the bin.
