Re: Looking to buy laptop w/ compatible optical drive that can play 4K UHD blu rays (playback only)

Good ...

Re: My mistake, Asus BD-16D1H-U Pro

Thanks for clearing up some of my incorrect thinking. A costly mistake on my behalf. Here's what MakeMKV says about the drive in Mac OS X version. I have seen comments that the Pioneer drives don't have BDXL support but the retail box clearly states BDXL Support? The Pioneer retail box with the tex...

Re: Looking to buy laptop w/ compatible optical drive that can play 4K UHD blu rays (playback only)

Hey Guys, I am struggling to put a laptop together that can play 4k UHD blu rays. I understand that I'll need an external optical drive and PowerDVD ultra. I'd be extremely appreciative for any guidance. Like what Woodstock and BillyCar11 stated, there are hardware strict requirements to playback 4...

Maybe wait for a couple of days and the new hash key will be available by that time.

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

I’ve also been getting the “Automatic SDF Downloading is disabled…” message but luckily still able to rip 4K UHDs successfully in Mac OSX. Avoided configuring the DNS as I’m worried it might mess up my internet connection.

Re: Need a 4K UHD “Friendly” / “Official” Blu-Ray Drive? - Any configuration, any size, any place, I'm at your service!

Alex do you have a drive that i could install in my mac pro 5,1 addition which would be able to rip my 4k blu ray disc? The blu-ray drives Alex sells will work well in your Mac Pro 5,1 installed internally or as an external BD drive. My Mac Pro is the same as yours. In my opinion , I would recommen...

Re: Fatal Error - BD+

Yes, I agree that it’s something to do with this version. I can see where I added Independence Day (BD+ disc) to my server last November so something has happened between then and present day. Hi Lovely Rita. Not sure if this will work, please try to reset your Mac’s “PRAM” if you have not done thi...

Re: Pixels Problem in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

Thank you. I'm glad to finally learn someone else has this Blu-ray and sees this same "pixel" problem at the start of the movie during the "WB" screen. As you describe, these pixels are not visible anywhere else in the movie - only at the start of the moving during the "WB" screen when Godzilla is ...

Re: My head hurts from this...

I tried that.... both things... several hours later... Wasn't lazy. Did several searches and read several threads... tried several firmwares and flashers... That firmware didn't load. Checksum error, etc... Maybe you can provide more details on how you're applying the firmware to the drive or scree...

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

I also got the message “Automatic SDF Downloading is Disabled or Failed” but the 4K UHD ripping continued and was completed successfully. Hope no other problems occur. Using Asus BW16D-1HT Firmware 3.00 with MakeMKV version 1.14.3. Mac OS Mavericks.

Who did I actually just give $50 to exactly? Just wondering.
Congrats and enjoy. MakeMKV is a good long-term investment and I've enjoyed using this app for many years.

Re: TSSTcorp SE-506AB TS01

Hey guys, MakeMKV tells me that my drive supports LibreDrive but it's not yet activated. Does that mean that there is a chance an update might remove the rip-lock sometime in the future? If so, are the chances good or rather bad it being an older drive? Is there anything I can do to help? Cheers Yo...

Re: WH16NS40 Flash UHD 4k Movie Not Working

@h8dyt In your first post you mentioned “the first UHD movie that….” If I’m not mistaken, I’m assuming it’s the only 4K UHD disc you’ve tried so far. Maybe you can try other 4K UHD movies and see if the work. Or try cleaning the 4K disc you currently have. Just a thought.
