Looking for Slim DVD Drive w/o RipLock

Post by Allistah » Sat Nov 16, 2019 8:49 pm

Hey all --

I just bought a LG BU40N drive and have the 1.03 MK firmware on it. It works fine but is clearly RipLocked.

Does anyone know of a Blue-Ray (doesn't have to be a 4k drive) that is not RipLocked and that actually spins. the drive up fast for ripping? This BU40N drive is a good drive, but man, I really wish it ripped DVDs faster. Pretty painful.

On a side note, the BU40N is just barely faster than the stock SuperDrive that came in my 2012 MacBook Pro.

All LibreDrive drives have capacity to become riplock-free. This will magically happen some day in future (when time will allow this). ETA is unknown...
