A special thank you to Mike for his Technical know-how and amazing abilities, he is nothing short of a Genius. He enabled a new 2019 model Hitachi LG-BU40N drive for me recently with (LibreDrive Firmware). This new firmware enabled the drive to allow people to back up their own personal 4K UHD disc collection among other options.

Please find below ebay links for UHD Friendly and Official Optical Drives.

Vantec USB 3.0 External Slim Enclosure fitted with an official LG-BU40N on Firmware version 1.03MK LibreDrive enabled.This Firmware is especially written by Mike Chen to support his world-renowned software program (MakeMKV) which is now the market leader in this sector.

The new safe method of Changing Firmware "Using Asus Modified Flasher"

Thanks to mike we now have a alternative method to flashing firmware read more about it here: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 16&t=18873

In some circumstances when Cross-Flashing and doing be-spoke firmware changes I would use Dosflash too. MakeMKV now supports official UHD drives such as LG WH16NS60, LG BU40N and others, which is currently being built on. Hopefully Mike will be adding on some new drives shortly :wink:

"Firmware Flashing"

Firmware Flashing advice free. I will do my best to point customers in the right direction as this is generally an easy task and one I do not like charging for.

Any questions or queries on firmware flashing please email me on uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com

I do this as a hobby and have priced the drives as keen as possible. I donate profits once a year every Christmas and will post details and pictures at this time.

All drives are brand new and tested for 4K Ultra HD compatibility. After the drive has been removed from original packaging and then connected to my computer, I change the firmware to custom firmware which makes your drive able to read 4K Ultra HD discs. Drives are tested by inserting a 4K Ultra HD disc and backing up a movie in relation to the application the firmware has been ordered for. After ensuring that there is no errors I put the drive back in the original packaging. Other than that, it is absolutely brand new. I cannot guarantee you will be able to plug this in and play a 4K Ultra HD disc on your computer. It will, however, READ them. Therefore, with additional third party software (NOT included in with the drive), this can provide you options to decrypt, rip, burn, copy, etc, giving the potential to change a 4K Ultra HD disc to a playable file format. Also, for 4K Ultra HD playback the your computer needs to have a motherboard, monitor and hardware that supports 4K Ultra HD playback as the drive is only one part of the jigsaw.

"Questions & Answers"

Q: What Firmware will you flash my drive with?
A: I will discuss each order or query individually with you and make you aware of what options is available to you.

"Payment"

All Countries outside the UK, I accept PayPal payment at my Paypal email address as follows: uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com
If you order via Ebay then the payment transaction is by PayPal.

I was looking at the ASUS BC-12D2HT that you were selling on Ebay for £59.99. Wish I had bought one. They are not advertised on Ebay any more. I would like it Cross-Flashed to BW-16D1HT v3.10MK. When will you have in stock again and if I order here will I get 10% discount. Kind of cheeky but I joined MakeMKV to get my 10% discount. I would also like to order Vantec External too :D . Thanks Harry

Thank you Ironhand you are the first person to reply to my new advert of supplying UHD Friendly drives. You are in for suprise :D

Being the first customer to reply I will send you a Vantec Enclosure with Asus BW-16D1HT free of charge as I made a promise to myself that I would do this for first customer.

As for ASUS BC-2D2HT I am expecting a new batch of 25 on Monday. The price as went slightly up, I will have to wait and see what shipping costs etc.. before I put new price on.

However, I have a test drive connected to my computer which I use for testing it is 3 months old. I will offer you this drive for £35.00 plus postage to UK I presume as you are talking in sterling. Please contact me on uhdfriendlydrives.com to firm up details and payment if you want BC-2D2HT. There will be no charge on Vantec as you are my 1st customer on MakeMKV :D

Also a big thank you to Mike for supporting me on MakeMKV and working with me on new drives.

I'm looking to buy either a LG BH16NS55 or an ASUS BW-16D1HT. Do you have any recommendations on which one is better, or are the drives basically identical?

Thanks for the reply. Can you confirm that the ASUS BC-12D2HT has the same specifications as the BW-16D1HT when crossflashed? Specifically, being able to read/burn all types of media is important to me.

Hello,

Just confirming your options of firmware, as you said reading all types of media was important to you?

Cross-Flashing BC-12D2HT cross-Flashed to ASUS BW-16D1HT v3.02

I would advise that if you flash your drive to ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware v3.02 it would support 4 Programs (DeUHD, AnyDVDHD, DVDfab, and MakeMKV).

If you flash the drive with Firmware 3.10MK LibreDrive then your drive will only support 2 programs (MakeMKV & AnyDVDHD). But saying this if you only use MakeMKV 3.10MK is best option.

I am here to help and support you. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me by ebay or at uhdfriendlydrives@gmail.com I will offer you 12 Months Warranty on the BC-1D2HT CF to BW-16D1HT. These ASUS Drive are very reliable.


Kind Regards

Sorry about that. The first ten were promotional prices as stated. Ten sold out in 48 hours.

But do not worry I will have another promotion coming up in the future.

New batch of drive and shipping costs have went up.

I got amazing deal on first ten drives which I passed on to customers and clearly advertised this sale.

Sorry you missed the opportunity.

Thank you for the amazing service. I'm in the US so I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with overseas sales but I'm sure glad I did. Your quick response and level of care is astounding. Within minutes of placing my order on eBay you contacted me to ensure I got the right product. Just a few hours after placing my order you had already sent me a reply with a picture of the drive boxed up and with a shipping label waiting to got to the post office the next day. Shipping took less than a week. I ordered it on Sunday and received it on Friday. Within minutes of receiving it I was already backing up my first UHD. Just plugged it in, fired up MakeMKV and it was ready to go. Fantastic!! Could be happier! I highly recommend you to anyone looking into moving to UHD's.
