Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Brand new LG WH16NS60 FW: 1.02 Windows 10 Pro 1903 I have downloaded all files from OP's original post. Have read this thread but still kind of lost. Thanks If you downloaded the flasher...

Re: UHD support

Quick question. I have the LG WH16Ns40 with fw 1.00 being reported by makemkv. UHD discs will not open when I put them in the drive, but regular blu-ray does. Is there any FW I need to install? I read about using LibreDrive but this is what the SW shows me: LibreDrive Information Status: Possible, ...

Marty,

I tried it again unsuccessfully, so I downloaded the flasher you suggested and ran it and chose the DE_ASUS_BW-16D1HT_3.02.bin file. When I hit the flash button, nothing happened. I waited a long time since I was unsure as to how long it would take. Any other ideas?

If I choose the bin file in subdirectory MK (the 3.10 version), would that one upgrade me to 3.10 but let me downgrade it then to 3.02? I'm willing to try if you think it would work (using the original ASUS flasher).
For further assistance please answer the questions previously asked. Thanks 😊
Thanks Marty,

If you are referring to something else running that would prevent the flasher from working, there wasn't. I did check it out but failed to mention it.

I did solve my problem though and I'll mention it here in case others run into the same situation.

I have a ASUS motherboard with 6 SATA ports. The first 4 ports have to be set in the same mode and then other ports have to be set together but they can be in a different mode. My first 4 ports are set to RAID because I have a 2 disk RAID setup in my tower. The last 2 ports are set to IDE. None of them are set to AHCI.

I had my ASUS optical drive plugged into one of the RAID ports. I changed it so that it was plugged into one of the IDE ports and rebooted. As soon as it came up my computer reported it had found new hardware and installed drivers. I then tried to downgrade my optical disk firmware to v3.02 and it worked the first time. I just grabbed any old Blu-ray disc and tried to rip it with MakeMKV and it worked first time.

So my warning to others is to not set your SATA port to either AHCI or RAID.

Thanks again. I'm a happy camper.
Ok, good to know. Glad you got it sorted.

Cheers

Hi Marty,

You ask:

A few questions:

1. How is your drive connected to PC?
2. What OS are you using?
3. How old is your drive?
4. Are you sure it came with firmware 3.03 (and not 3.10)?

I has a desktop tower with the ASUS mounted in a bay and connected to the MB with a SATA cable. I am running Win7 OS. I bought this drive early this year to replace an old one that went bad. As for the firmware, 3.03 is what MakeMKV displays so I believe that that is the firmware version on the drive.

Thanks,

KIt
Did you have anything running in the background that accesses the drive, such as AnyDVD, DVDFab etc? as these will hinder the firmware update process.

If not, can you please try it again. If you cannot get it to work, please try the LG flasher. Grab it from this link and place in the same folder as the ASUS flasher. Run it, click the little folder icon to choose a firmware, then click the play icon to flash.

Let us know how you go.

Got my BW-16D1HT today and flashed it with DE 3.02 (Manifacture Date Dec 2018, 3.03). Wasn't able to test UHD discs yet, but normal BD discs work perfectly so far! Thank you so much!!! Not sure about this one, but I think the Serial Number displayed in MakeMKV is now a different one? Didn't backup ...

I'm guessing this drive would be compatible with LibreDrive
Yep, has libredrive enabled and is also UHD friendly.

Apologies for being a newbie but I expected to get a new drive. Fortunately, it still works so I have already arranged a refund and return. I will source a new one from elsewhere and try to check that it is firmware 3.01 or above before I do anything. I'll also make sure I read everything possible ...

Thanks you for pointing me to the right places. Don't know why the Rufus generated boot disk did not work, did it twice, followed the Instructions.txt file.
