    I love you guys, in a purely platonic way of course.
  3. way late to the UHD/4k party - but love it on my 65" samsung using my XBOX One X as the player. To make backups of discs I've bought using AnyDVD - is it possible to use this drive? It seems that from what I read out of the 12+ pages on this thread - that LG has a few that work - of course with the right firmware it seems.
    LG Electronics Blu-ray/DVD Writer Optical Drive - WH16NS60
    Is it worth $100?

    I just built a new Intel Core i9-9900K system and have lots more HP than my old i7-3770K. DeUHD needed or AnyDVD and Handbrake still the recipe for this?

    AnyDVD does not work with "official" UHD drives, so the NS60 is a no go. If you want to use AnyDVD to back up UHD discs, you need a "UHD friendly" drive.

    The most common (and popular) UHD friendly drives are:

    LG WH16NS40 (NS50)
    LG WH14NS40 (NS50)
    LG BH16NS55
    ASUS BW-16D1HT

    There are a few others (only LG & ASUS) but the above are the most common.
  5. Thanks for the quick reply. I rolled the dice and bought the Asus 16D1HT from a reseller on eBay that says he's rolled it back to FW 3.01. It will be here on Monday of next week.

    Marty knows this already but just for the record the ns60 official drive can be used if it's cross flashed to a friendly firmware. It can even be cross flashed to an Asus firmware if you're not burning certain types of media. Nonetheless the drive you got is excellent. I personally flashed mine with the mk 3.10 firmware found on the makemkv forum as it seems to have better triple layer disc reading capability. But 3.01 will work just fine.
