Asus BW-16D1HT 3.10 on Unbuntu no longer reading Blu ray discs

Post by shayman » Tue Feb 23, 2021 1:00 am

Sometime during the last couple of weeks, my Asus internal drive stopped recognizing blu ray discs. MakeMKV reports "no disc inserted". It does, however recognize DVDs.

MakeMKV reports the following:

Code: Select all

Drive Information
OS device name: /dev/sr0
Manufacturer: ASUS
Product: BW-16D1HT
Revision: 3.10
Serial number: KLPJ9NI0619
Firmware date: 2119-01-04 10:14

Highest AACS version: 72

LibreDrive Information

Firmware type: Patched (microcode access re-enabled)
Firmware version: 3.10

No disc inserted
And the MakeMKV debug log shows this:

Code: Select all

I've tried restarting the computer and reinstalling MakeMKV.

Any thoughts on what might be the problem?

Thanks
Scott

fully shut down the pc pull the plug and hold the power button.

then turn it back on and see if it reads blurays if not its time to replace the drive.

Restarting your computer does not reset the computer hardware. Since they've dropped the reset button from most computers nowadays, you have to remove power to get the motherboard to actually reset hardware to a known state.
