To my knowledge (someone correct me if i'm wrong) Windows does not support Dolby Vision at the point.
Well it's complicated and simple windows can output Dolby vision but only in games for now the only limitation is no playback software maker is paying the licensing fee I think.

Re: Spider-man Far From Home and ASUS BW-16D1HT

Do you want to document pulling one of these apart and cleaning it for people? I suspect that process would make people nervous if they've never done it before. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk Sure maybe I'll start a UHD drive troubleshooting thread But for now the basic process is: Eject the ...

Re: Spider-man Far From Home and ASUS BW-16D1HT

Did you get anywhere with this? I've just purchased Cinematic universe Phase three and the only disc it can't read and says "no disc" is Spider Man Far From Home. I have the same drive so wondering if you resolved this or if anyone else is experiencing this with different drive or same drive? Thank...

Re: LibreDrive for HL-DT-ST BD-RE BT30N GL02

Thanks alot for your fast respond. I'm amazed how old my drive is, I knew it's old, but that old. Wow. Can you recommend me a good one that is not too expensive? Thanks in advance for your help. BU40N but its 9.5 mm not the 12.7 of that one you would need to find some sort of spacer all these drive...

I must be doing something wrong because it takes me 40 or so minutes to RIP a 4K UHD disk now. I am curious how you got the speed so fast.
40 mins is normal for a 66 GB disk 100GB discs 60 mins
i think he means he was setup and flashed in 15 mins

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

Not at all. That last post could be very helpful indeed. If Passkey will work - that's fine. I did flash the BU40N to the MK 1.03 first, and then to 1.00. That allowed me to rip 4K discs. If I can crossflash to BU10 and make it PassKey compatible, that would be ideal. 1.00 works with dvdfab no need...

Like what Woodstock and BillyCar11 stated, there are hardware strict requirements to playback 4K UHD movies.

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

Yeah I’ll be flashing it on a VM. What are the drawbacks between these two drives, outside of cost? LG WH16NS60, UHD Official Internal 5.25 LG BU40N, UHD Official Internal Slim Sata 9.5mm Are their speeds the same or is the NS60 the best one? I’d prefer the slim one for portability and it’s a bit c...

Hey all -- Thanks to those that created this guide and have continually contributed. I think I've settled on a drive but I wanted to get a real-time check on it to see if there was something that I needed to know before I buy it. I have MacBook Pros at home and I'm looking at getting the "LG BU40N,...
