Re: So does LibreDrive require recent bd drives?

I'm guessing that LibreDrive leans on certain chips being in the drives. If the chipset is supported, that's the key. The chipset in the various LG/Asus UHD drives got first dibs since there was the most demand on that end. Beyond that, I'd assume more will be added over time, assuming support is ea...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2019

Buffalo BRUHD-PU3-BK, UHD Official, External Slim 9.5mm USB 3.0- must be removed from case to flash I don't believe this is true. I downgraded a BU11 drive to BU10 using the ASUS_ODD_FW_Changer method. I haven't tried cross-flashing other BU40N FWs. But, I definitely didn't have to remove the drive...

Re: Firmware downgrade using official (patched) flasher, the "Ultra hax0r guide"

Just FYI, I just received a new BRUHD-PU3 with BU11 pre-installed. I made my own DE version of BU10 right around the time this post came up. The BU11-installed PU3 works fine with the DE version of BU10. :) (I assume Mike will generate an MK version at some point.) I'll try the BR40N FW on the PU3 ...

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

Good news: I just confirmed that my extracted FW works! I just got a new BRUHD-PU3 with BU11 pre-installed. I made a "DE" version of BU10. The downgrade worked fine with the modded Asus flasher posted on the first page. The "DE" version should be posted soon (and I suppose Mike will post an "MK" ver...

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

Question: Does anybody know which tool can be used to remove keys and laser data from FW dumps? The good news is that Mike was able to extract the FW from my BU10 drive, and will hopefully post appropriate materials very soon for downgrading. :) In the meantime, just in case something goes wrong, I'...

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

I sent Mike some data that'll help him determine if the FW can be extracted. I haven't heard back, unfortunately. I'd imagine his plate's pretty full right now. :( Oh well. Good things come to those who wait.

Re: Cant Rip certain discs

Yes I was successfully able to use the tools provided here to flash 3.02 but Im still having the same issues(drive makes grinding noise with some triple layer discs), although this time it actually made a dump file but I don't know where to send it. I also couldn't find this supposedly working 3.10...

Re: WH14NS40: Firmware 1.02 or 1.03 preferred for LD?

I don't think that's right. I've been using *ahem* other software here & there as needed. (Don't worry, MakeMKV is my first love.) All the drives not only have MK firmware but are cross-flashed as desired. At least, I'm pretty sure I picked the MK versions of the FW. :)

Re: Are my drives supported?

Hi. I actually did plug in my drive eventually. With the BU10 firmware, it's good to go. :) I sent Mike some data to see if there's any way to either revert drives with BU11 (it doesn't work, or so I'm told) or to mod the firmware such that it'll work with LD. To be clear, drives with BU10 firmware ...

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

Hi. I have a drive with the BU10 firmware still on it. Is there any way I can help out with extracting the firmware or otherwise doing something Mike or other devs will find useful? I'm technically competent but haven't been following all the flashing tools. Just let me know the steps to follow and ...

Re: Need help with LibreDrive, current threads a bit confusing

You're fine. MakeMKV will automatically handle everything.
