Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

I love my NS60 drives. I'm even using the NS60 firmware on my BW-16D1HT.

CPU is pretty much irrelevant for ripping. There's no encoding going on. It's just data shuffling.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Right, the upcoming announced hotfix image will not include the DV fix. This is a public beta that anyone can sign up for over on the nvidia forums that includes some wifi and audio drop issues. The test image I was referring to was one that I'm guessing was offered to a few people through DMs by a...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

New NS60 drive came today. I literally just put it in the vantec case about 10 minutes ago. MFG'd in May 2020 and it came with 1.02 on it. SuuuuWEEET! Ran the following awesome commands: makemkvcon64 f -d \Device\CdRom0 rawflash -i .\HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_WH16NS60-1.02-NM00100-211810291936.bin And then.......

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Brilliant! Can't wait to see the resulting player work to support it. And of course we need a new makemkv build as well. But this is exciting!

Re: How to install the LibreDrive patched firmware for BD drive, in linux?

That's what I get for reading too fast. Yes, all of that. But, sometimes the SDF won't load properly for 1.15.1. Reverting temporarily to 1.15.0 can help if you're using the proper SDF and still getting the error.

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

I just flashed my drive to NS55 1.04-MK and I got no warning at all. It simply worked fine. But when I put NS60 1.02-MK on the drive, I got the error I talked about with no way to continue. So I would say it works for SOME firmware (probably those that make a drive truly friendly) but not others. T...

It doesn't. It links to their downgrade ripo...er software. Just an ok button. No yes/no. No don't show checkbox.

Just got around to testing. Indeed, there is no way to override the firmware check. That's annoying. It'll make life harder for some people.

I guess I can experiment with it tomorrow as I've got a lifetime license. I don't ever really use it but I bought it as insurance just in case. I can try flashing different firmware and see what happens. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk Cool!! The results might help some folk that like to use b...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Have you tried using WH16NS60 1.02-MK and just ignoring the DVDFab incompatible firmware issue? I tested this a while back on the trial version of DVDFab with BH16NS55 1.04-MK. When DVDFab gives the incompatible firmware error, I just clicked "do not show this again" and then used DVDFab as normal....
