This is what we were working on for a while - viewforum.php?f=19 . If you have any issues with LibreDrive mode, please discuss it in appropriate sub-forum. Thanks!
what drives/firmwares are supported with this LibreDrive mode?

The detailed list will be posted soon. About 200 firmware versions total, about 2/3 in supported state. MakeMKV now displays detailed information for the drive on the main screen, look for the LibreDrive information on the right pane. It will tell you if the drive is supported right now or can be possibly supported.

First, this Libredrive is awesome, good work! However, I don't see this in my MakeMKV, is there something that needs to be done to update the display of drive info?
Thanks!

Update: Figured it out, actually rip a disc, when it downloads the latest SDF it updated to use libredrive mode!

I use an LG external Blu-ray drive. It says the "hardware" has LibreDrive, not not the firmware. Is that the way it is supposed to be?

I noticed that normally the original files that are supposed to be copied are track 800. ... But I tried a movie called Night At the Museum 3 and it said track 800 is equal to track 850. But rather than leaving out track 850, it left out track 800. In the past, I could see both to see if the Segment Maps were the same. But now it doesn't let me - I only see track 850. Is that the way it is supposed to be?

Also, with the movie A Good Day to Die Hard, it had many hash errors and other types of "bugs." The bad thing is I was unable to get a report of this because it never finishes anything. Instead, it freezes and I need to press Control+Alt+Delete to turn MakeMKV off.

Any advice is helpful. ... Thank you.

When you say not the firmware, does it specifically say it isn't supported, or does it say "unpatched"? I may be wrong, but I believe that only the hardware matters for LibreDrive as it bypasses the firmware

No, it requires a supported version of the firmware. Mike is working on adding support for different firmware versions so it's possible to have supported hardware that's on a firmware that's not currently supported.

Hi Mike,
