Re: LG WH14NS40 flashed to WH16NS60 1.02MK - Only reads BD but not DVD

Got it, thanks! The BU40N looks like a slim drive. Those always feel fragile to me, like I might accidentally break the door if I'm not careful. Any recommendations for a standard 5.25" drive? nope all the 5.25 that are UHD friendly are basically the same for now and just rebrands or an aacs 2.x ch...

At the minute I'm using an xbox one s to play my 4K discs but I would much rather use my htpc and sell the xbox. Are there any uhd friendly drives which have 4K playback capability, rather than just for disc ripping?
Yes all of them but only some official and others unofficial

Fair reply but no it was sitting alone on the desk.
The laser does have the ability to move up and down I guess yours moved to far up might be best to get a replacement and see if LG will do anything about your disc but I don't think they will

Re: UHD (Official) Friendly Drive - Archgon MD-8107S-U3-UHD (Powered by LG BU40N)

Just bought one of these drives second disk i put in, it destroyed. Ripped the surface off of it. Looked inside the drive and the dust from the surface was on the edge near the laser lens. Im assuming it has a manufacturing flaw. Really disappointed in this. I have only ever see a BU40N do that if ...
