Need Help with Asus BW-16D1HT drive


#1

Picked up a new Asus BW-16D1HT drive. It has Firmware 3.02. I would like to move my UHD Library to my NAS. When I try to Rip the UHD disc it tells me to get a UHD friendly drive. So I figure I got a drive that been fixed to not use UHD disc. I read I could flash the firmware to and earlier version and it would work, but I tried several ways I read about but none seem to work. I did get DOSFLASH to read on firmware and save it, but that’s all. Does anyone have a solution for a drive like this? Any ideas anyone? Is there somewhere I can get a drive that will work for me, for sure?

The Asus BW-16D1HT with Firmware 3.02 that I just got from Amazon would not work for UHD. I used DosFlash32_BH16NS40 and BH16NS40_EEPROM_Data_Mover to create and flash a new Firmware. It worked great, drive is now friendly and working great.
