@ripnrun,

If you are located in Australia, I can help you out with a UHD Friendly drive. If you are in USA or elsewhere, contact @jonghotti or @Billycar11.

10-4 Good Buddy

I will get a hold of them and see what they want for a ready to go. Normally I would do myself but newborn work blah blah blah. If it isn't a horrible up- charge someone just take my money already.

Anyways thanks. I'm definitely old school looking to play again. Brings back memories.

Howdy yall

I'm new to this game, kind of, at least recently.

I was going through the thread and wasn't sure if the beginning thread was still accurate and with all that I read I was hoping someone can clear something up for me.

I don't run a PC tower but a laptop, therefore I wouldn't normally go after an internal. I know there are ways to adapt things but was wondering if there are external USB drives that can read UHD.

I apologize if I missed anything, just want to be sure before I take the plunge and have a turd on my hands.

What do you guys think? Thank you for all of the help in advance
There are 3 external drives that work with DeUHD (not sure about MakeMKV though!). They are:

Buffalo BRUHD-PU3
LG BP60NB10
LG BE16NU50

They are quite expensive though. You could buy an internal drive and a USB enclosure to make it external for less than the cost of an actual external.
Well you guys are the experts. Can you hook me up with a model of both? I'd like to stay in this community so I should go internal with enclosure.

You guys were by far and away the most prevalent that I could find and most recommended at that.

So just to make sure I understand correctly. I get an internal, put it in enclosure, connect via usb, don't update firmware, and I should be good? If there is a weird firmware then I flash to something different?

I think that was what I gathered from all the reading.

Thank you again for the assistance your knowledge is much appreciated.
Sir I can hook you up with genuine articles of either of the LGs you listed. And/or build you the equivalent for much less.

The BE16NU50 is long extinct, but supported by MakeMKV.

The BP60NB10 is still in production, not supported by MakeMKV, but I have something put together that looks and behaves almost exactly like that drive AND works with our wonderful program.

Please email me at alexcoluzzi32@gmail.com or text/call 650-7201869 I am at your service.

the MakeMKV product far superior when compared to the competition AND
You’ll be stoked to meet the coolest bunch of disc ripping rock stars anywhere, that make up this community!

What's the best drive to buy today? I was thinking of the ASUS bc-12d2ht or the ASUS BW-16D1HT
LG WH14NS40 downgrade
LG WH16NS60 cross flash
LG WH16NS40 downgrade
ASUS BW-16D1HT downgrade
Once WH16NS60 and latest 1.01 firmware is able to rip UHD discs (which seems imminent), would you recommend it or the BW-16D1HT? I don't use the drive for anything other than ripping discs with MakeMKV.

i would recommend the WH16NS60 because its nice to have a drive that recognizes uhd disks natively with no workarounds it will also have no sleep bug.

I have two older LG BH16NS40's, but one doesn't have an SVC code and the other says NS40. I'm guessing there's nothing that can be done to make these friendly?

I'm looking at getting a Asus BW-16D1HT with the correct firmware for 4K rips. Is there anyone offering their services in the UK?

How close are you to Dorset sir I’m sending at least two drives that way in the next couple days and will trust these two fellows who live within 30 miles of each other to work out a meet up. I can easily make it 3. Drives aren’t expensive by themselves but it’s the shipping across the pond that’ll get ya.
Or does “across the pond” refer to the English Channel? Not clear on that.

I'm actually right next door to Dorset in Devon. Do you happen to know the shipping cost if I was to cover the cost of just sending one to me?

24.50 for first class takes 6-10 business days never had it take longer than 7 and there is a tracking number via the customs paperwork.

@subman,

I'm pretty sure your current firmware (3.00) is UHD friendly. Just pop in a 4K UHD disc, open MakeMKV and see if you can back it up to your hard drive.

If it works,then you are all good. If not,then, yes, you can easily cross-flash it. Not sure about if it will write to Blu Ray discs after being flashed to BW-16D1HT.

That doesn't sound too bad. How much are you charging for the drive itself?
