Re: UHD Friendly & Official drives for sale & flashing service (currently Australia & NZ only)

Greetings,

I am only posting here because I can't send PM's yet ... in all the time I have been using MakeMKV I haven't really needed to use the forums until now - when I'm looking for 4K/UHD capable drives.

I can get the LG BH16NS55 from my normal parts supplier (Marty if you PM me I can give you the details - they have them at a good price). I am wondering if the current versions need flashing, or if they come with a version of the firmware that allows access to UHD content. Since I have a desktop and 2 media PC's these drives look to be the way forward for me.

Slight note - I run Linux primarily (although I have access to a Windows machine if I need it), is there a way to flash the firmware via Linux?

Thanks

Yes, all drives these days need flashing. It is possible with Linux. I don't use Linux but there are a couple of threads about it. It is so much easier to flash on a windows PC if you can.

Thanks for the info. I currently get them at a good price. It is postage that is the killer!!
Cheers :D

Hi there,
MartyMcNuts recently set me up with a LG BP50NB40 (slim external USB) cross-flashed to BP60NB10. Really helpful, straightforward, and the slim little drive does everything I've asked of it. So far so good - Many Thanks Marty! :D

Kudos to MartyMcNuts for "above & beyond" service, delivery and product - supply BH16NS55 cross flashed to WH16NS60 + Vantec Y-1039
Emails replied to quickly with answers to any queries prior to order, ordered Wed and delivered Fri which was bonus and welcomed.
Highly recommended for all you who reside "down under" in Oz !!

I ordered a LG BP50NB40 on a Friday afternoon. It was prepared over the weekend and posted on the Monday. Works perfectly.

I ordered a flashed LG BH16NS55 from Marty on Monday, and it was here by Thursday!

It works perfectly, and Marty was super helpful with my questions before ordering.

Nothing I ever buy just works out of the box, but this has been a breeze!

Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

I have just taken delivery of The Archgon MD-8107S-U3YC-UHD supplied to me by Jason Kelly
I have connected it to my 2018 macmini running Big Sur beta and it works like a charm

Jason delivered the drive in less time than he said it would take and he was awesome to deal with.


Thank you
