Just bought one of these drives myself. Mine came with 3.03. Don't forget, you have to flash the LibreDrive firmware. This video was very helpful for me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfpf6HoMMis.

I used the flasher tool included in that guy's zipfile to downgrade my drive's firmware to 3.02, then I downloaded the custom firmware pack from here: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 19&t=19113 and used the same flasher tool as before to upgrade it to 3.10 firmware from that pack.

I've already ripped a 4k disc with no trouble! Whole flashing process for me took about 5 minutes.

Just flashed the drive and now everything is working properly. Running my first UHD now. Thanks!
