Hey, being the big dumb baby I am, I decided to install the latest update for the BW-16D1HT (3.10) and now realize that it isnt compatible with the libre drivers. Is there a way to flash the firmware and downgrade or am I going to have to exchange this bad boy at the Memory Express where I got it?

Yes, use the modified ASUS flasher to flash 3.10-mk.

You can then either use it with 3.10-mk or flash another firmware.

Is Windows 10 automatically updating 4K friendly drive firmware?
Or does Windows 10 only Install drivers and windows updates?

When it comes to optical disc drives Windows has never and currently still does not execute these types of updates. This is why—as it’s very clearly discussed in this very thread—you need drive manufacturer specific software flashers (e.g ASUS, LG, etc) to update (and in many cases as discussed in this forum as well, downgrade) said firmware.
