Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS

OK, losing the will to live now. I've got a Asus BW16D1HT, firmware 3.02 (Jan 2018) which doesn't see any UHD disc whatsoever. Followed the downgrade instructions and all OK but I think I must be 'copying' incorrectly because the drive is a brick when I've finished. I can re -write my dumped firmwa...

Re: Asus BW-16D1HT Firmware

So I emailed ASUS about it and they're now telling me that I should receive the rebate in the next 14 days. We'll see how that goes. That would be nice if they did ship it to me! I keep forgetting to send this in. I've got at least six lying around so I suppose if the first time failed I could try ...

Re: UHD - Thor: Ragnarok - Correct Playlist

What do you guys do for audio for this? Suppose I want just the atmos track since I copy the mkv files to a usb stick and play them through my x800 player or st5000 sound bar (both Sony products). I've not yet learned how to name the audio tracks, not sure if it can be done just using the mkv file ...

Re: What are your playback setups?

Plex Server running on my iMac. Now Infuse app 5.7 on my ATV 4K has native integration of Plex Server, so just pointing to my Plex Server on the Infuse app. Audio sent uncompressed LPCM to my Denon AVR-X2400H connected to my Vizio P65 display. So far things are working great. Hopefully ATV 4K will ...

Re: BW-16D1HT Not reading UHD

If you do not have access to a PC to downgrade the firmware, you best bet would be to return this drive and get one from a forum member who sells these.

Re: BW-16D1HT Not reading UHD

I mean as far as the hashed keys are concerned I am simply putting the text file of the hashed keys in the folder where MakeMKV has designated the data directory right? In my case the data directory is "D:/Program Files (x86)/MakeMKV" so I just have the txt file of the hashed keys in there. Cleanli...

Re: Are there any drives left with the right specs?

Just wanted to follow up on this. Alex (in this thread) sold me a WH16NS40 with firmware 1.02 at a very reasonable price (too cheap all things considered)). Plug & Play. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Alex! Awesome .. next time I am in the Bay Area, I am buying you a beer for your good hear...

Re: BW-16D1HT Not reading UHD

Your firmware version indicates 3.02, however my drive had 3.02 also but a manufacture date of February 2018 where ASUS had plugged in the AACS loophole, so I had to downgrade it to the friendly 3.02 firmware. What is the manufacture date of your drive? It can be found on the label underneath the dr...

Re: Are there any drives left with the right specs?

It is pretty much a drive lottery now ... I got a LG WH16NS40 drive from Fry's Electronics that Alex had suggested that worked right out of the box without any firmware downgrade. The other ASUS BW-16D1HT I ordered from Newegg had the 3.02 firmware that had pugged the AACS loophole and I had to dow...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS

Hello. Fantastic guide. I have two drives on the way from Jet.com. In the event that I need to roll back, I have been researching this process. I was wondering if it is possible to install the EEPROM Data Mover program also on the root of the USB drive with DOSFLASH_Windows7 and execute it? Then th...

Re: UHD drives

I typically clean my discs under running tap water and using some dawn dishwashing liquid on a soft microfiber cloth. Then dry them with a clean dry microfiber cloth by wiping them from the center hole to the outside radially but NEVER in concentric circles. Even with brand new 4K UHD discs straight...
