I just got the unit today. It had fw 1.04 on it, so I used "sdftool_flasher" to get rid of the encrypted 1.04 and replaced it with MK1.04. Drive is manufactured July 2020. I'm just test driving it with GitS US (anime) disc. Curiously, my unit does not have UltraHD Blu-ray logo on bezel but has UHD Blu-ray text written on the label on top. So I assume this is official UHD Blu-ray drive. If I understood correctly I need to dowgrade to official 1.00 if want to use Anydvd HD or any other tool than Makemkv. What if I had latest PowerDVD Ultra and all the bells and whistles regarding DRM (I don't) could I playback UHD discs with this MK1.04 firmware or does it also require downgrade to 1.00.Billycar11 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 16, 2020 9:16 pmIf you have 1.00 leave it but I recommend 1.03 for most people because it is a simple 1 step flash and done less risk of bricking the drive 1.00 vs 1.03 in makemkv there is no difference the only advantage of 1.00 is comparability with other rippers
Seems to backup fast. It's done 18GB so far and reached 5.7X (24.6 MB/s) speed.
Max speed seems to be 6.0X (25.9 MB/s). I guess it is max for this drive model.
Full backup elapsed time 48:01 (63.34 GB, 3 layers). I wonder why Lionsgate used triple decker even though data size is less than 66 GB.
