Re: I'm sorry, I can't figure out this Libredrive thing.

I'm sure there's a way I can tell once I get the drive? After you install the drive and open up MakeMKV, the information window should look something like this: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=19116&p=72276&hilit=described+with+my+LG+BH16NS55#p72276 You want to see that exact dri...

Re: I'm sorry, I can't figure out this Libredrive thing.

Whatever you get, ensure it’s from a trusted seller that will sell/send you new drive. Do not buy second hand used drives. I’ve seen way too many people get burned that way when they end up receiving an old incompatible second hand drive from some random scammer on ebay. That 2015+ manufactured date...

Re: I'm sorry, I can't figure out this Libredrive thing.

On what could be a small bright side to this whole ordeal, if you purchase one of the newer compatible models from ASUS, like the BW-16D1HT, it will be a good drive and you'll be ready for UHD BD backups along with LibreDrive comparability when properly flashed to a compatible firmware provided in M...

Re: I'm sorry, I can't figure out this Libredrive thing.

The drive was purchased in 2014. Honestly I don't see that as relevant though, it has worked perfectly on it's own and with MakeMKV until these updates concerning LibreDrive. It's 100% relevant because there are several revisions of drives put out over the years by manufacturers/vendors. Each time ...

Re: Asus BC-12D2HT unable to read UHD blu-ray discs

I found on the DVDFab homepage that this drive is UHD friendly when bought after 2015, with firmware 3.00. (https://de.dvdfab.cn/4k-uhd-drives.htm) Well... you found the answer to your own question over at that DVDFab link. Not sure what other answer you are expecting here. That manufactured date i...

Re: Asus BC-12D2HT 3.00 Official (patched) flasher

It’s not only Billy’s point of view, but Mike’s (owner/developer of MakeMKV) point of view and other well known developers who have been working on this for over a year. And they are correct. The most proper and safe way to flash the firmware of the drives in question is detailed in those posts and ...
