Re: Best Firmware to flash an Asus BW-16D1HT?

As Woodstock advised, the internal hardware for many of these drives is the exact same. Just slapped with different vendor badges. Again, if you take the time to read the many posts discussing this subject, you would get a pretty good idea of how this all works. It is very well documented within the...

Re: New UHD Friendly Drives and Associated UHD Hardware. 45 Drives Sold in 2 Weeks

I am a complete non-techie. We have recently bought a new home, and it is so much smarter than us! We have a Control4 System that I am buying 2 8GB Western Digital Drives in a bay. The thought is to load all our blu ray movies (as well as photos and songs) on them, then we can access them through C...

Re: Looking to buy a "ready" out of the box ripper

In addition to what VarHD advises, you are going to have to take the time to learn. From what you have written in your post, you are obviously lacking an understanding of how this all works. Not just with MakeMKV, but with any computer system and software/application. There are a lot of technical in...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

What happened? That has been very clearly detailed in all the previous posts in this thread. You’re gonna have to do some reading. If you do not want to update your networks settings, well... that is entirely up to you and it becomes hard for anyone here to help there as well. Because at that point...

Re: The Greatest Showman - video can't be decrypted

Hash key updates have been automated for the most part. The hash key file method is not updated as often as the new method. For quicker support do as Woodstock advises.

Re: SDF Fails to Download, MakeMKV fatal error opening UHDs

If a manual download is for now the work around, could someone provide the location and file name to download and then what to do with it please or if clear instructions exist, where may we find them? Though I get the SDF fails situations, I have been able to generate MKV files from UHDs except for...

Re: A few questions from a newbie to this technology

1. Which Blu-Ray reader should I get, it can be in a PC(SATA) or USB3 I do not mind, it must support UHD disks and going by my reading of this forum I think it should support LibreDrive? Region unlocked would be a bonus but not seen as a requirement? This questions has been asked a thousand times. ...
