LG BP5050NB40 support

Post by ionblue » Mon May 06, 2019 12:43 pm

I just purchased a second external drive so I can rip multiple BR's on my Mac. I had no idea that there was a possibility with this drive to be able to rip UHD material though. I saw the error about the LibreDrive firmware on my first rip and was like, what the heck is that all about?!

Anyway, I don't need to rip UHD just yet, but knowing it might be possible with what I have already is kind of cool. Anybody have any idea for this drive: LG BP5050NB40.

This drive and it's UHD Official cousin the BP60NB10 will continue to go unsupported by makemkv until a flasher that works over USB is released.

It's already available

Use USB Emulator & Linux Devil Claw Firmware Extractor modify and reflash

https://github.com/devilsclaw/flasher/r ... nt_Release

Also some hardware versions available but very very expensive mostly used for forensic Superspeed USB3 Host emulator Connectivity work.

Hope I have pointed you to solution, as works for me. Mike also as solution for this. But is very tricky I would say is the word.

Regards
It's the start of a solution yes. Which USB Emulator do you use? Thank you.

I use a hardware solution that a kind friend built for me. It hangs together but does job. I know a ex customer of mine, who would describe himself as a Linux Geek. They built, designed and wrote the software for their own custom USB/SCSI/SATA emulator.

I know they used and adapted the open source for Devil Claw Flasher along with their own Gerber files for component built.

I will ask them if they are prepared to share with MAKEMKV and report back if they are prepared to share.

Regards 😊
