Hi Marty,

You ask:

A few questions:

1. How is your drive connected to PC?
2. What OS are you using?
3. How old is your drive?
4. Are you sure it came with firmware 3.03 (and not 3.10)?

I has a desktop tower with the ASUS mounted in a bay and connected to the MB with a SATA cable. I am running Win7 OS. I bought this drive early this year to replace an old one that went bad. As for the firmware, 3.03 is what MakeMKV displays so I believe that that is the firmware version on the drive.

Thanks,

KIt
Did you have anything running in the background that accesses the drive, such as AnyDVD, DVDFab etc? as these will hinder the firmware update process.

If not, can you please try it again. If you cannot get it to work, please try the LG flasher. Grab it from this link and place in the same folder as the ASUS flasher. Run it, click the little folder icon to choose a firmware, then click the play icon to flash.

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... =75#p72531

Let us know how you go.
Marty,

I tried it again unsuccessfully, so I downloaded the flasher you suggested and ran it and chose the DE_ASUS_BW-16D1HT_3.02.bin file. When I hit the flash button, nothing happened. I waited a long time since I was unsure as to how long it would take. Any other ideas?

If I choose the bin file in subdirectory MK (the 3.10 version), would that one upgrade me to 3.10 but let me downgrade it then to 3.02? I'm willing to try if you think it would work (using the original ASUS flasher).
For further assistance please answer the questions previously asked. Thanks 😊

Got my BW-16D1HT today and flashed it with DE 3.02 (Manifacture Date Dec 2018, 3.03). Wasn't able to test UHD discs yet, but normal BD discs work perfectly so far! Thank you so much!!! Not sure about this one, but I think the Serial Number displayed in MakeMKV is now a different one? Didn't backup ...

I'm guessing this drive would be compatible with LibreDrive
Yep, has libredrive enabled and is also UHD friendly.

Re: Upgrading UHD drive to LibreDrive

I have a stock LG UH12NS40 drive running f/w 1.00. It works fine in MakeMkv, but I think upgrading it with LibreDrive support would breath new life into it.

Apologies for being a newbie but I expected to get a new drive. Fortunately, it still works so I have already arranged a refund and return. I will source a new one from elsewhere and try to check that it is firmware 3.01 or above before I do anything. I'll also make sure I read everything possible ...

Re: New BW-16D1HT, firmware, linux

Thanks you for pointing me to the right places. Don't know why the Rufus generated boot disk did not work, did it twice, followed the Instructions.txt file. Oh well, at least the other one did and all is well. No worries. Yeah, the boot disc issue is strange. The iso has been downloaded about 40+ t...

I created a boot USB stick using Hirens boot "cd", and, am able to boot into Windows 10 PE from that setup. Unfortuntaely, it does not include the .NET framework. I cannot find the link to the LG flasher, which i think would work. There is some link to some Russian site, but I can never get that to...

That's what I did, boot from the USB stick, Windows loading screen comes up with the spinner, then, I get this. Not sure what is going on there. It should boot to win10 desktop.
