The latest firmware for the popular LG BH16NS40, WH16NS40 and BE16NU50 Blu-ray writers should improve Ultra HD Blu-ray disc compatibility. In reality however, the firmware update appears to close the loophole in AACS 2.0 that allows the drives to rip Ultra HD Blu-ray movies. LG has made it impossible to downgrade to an earlier firmware, but users on the internet are working on ways to solve that.
