I read a lot since December about decrypting/ripping UHD-BD’s including all news regarding DeUHD, those leaked keys, AnyDVD/DVDFab support and the latest News regarding MakeMKV and their hashed keys system, so I decided to give this a try now by my self.
I have one of those “UHD friendly drives” namely the Asus BW-16D1HT but since I don’t have a proper PC with SATA connectivity, I’m forced to use a external 5.25" enclosure and to connect this optical drive via USB to my notebook.
My first try reading a UHD-BD in general wasn’t successful but I think the reason why it failed is that my Optical Drive is still on Firmware 1.01 according to MakeMKV (I bought it back in 2014 as far as I can remember).
But updating/flashing the Firmware with a 3.00 or 3.01 dump failed as well and I guess the reason is that I work with this optical drive only external
Maybe someone with a external 5.25" enclosure can test this out if he/she is able to read a UHD-BD via USB? Is it because of that low Firmware my optical Drive have?
Thanks in Advance.
