    @axel_1999 Hi you can find the Firmware Flasher to Vers. 3.02 (UHD friendly) on the Asus Homepage by Support Site

    @TheDarkKnight
    Even though it can be crossflashed to the internal one, axel is looking for the A201 firmware of the external BW-16D1H-U.

    I'm looking as well. Not entirely sure it exists at this point.

    Lookit ! ;)
    The firmware in the ZIP is a clean firmware, so DON'T use it with dosflash until you've injected/imported your calibration data as described in Teddy's guide:
    https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/dumping-downgrading-firmware-on-uhd-friendly-devices.74479/

    Please read his guide entirely. You don't need a Hex-Editor by all means.
    The attached EEPROM Data Mover will alternatively also do the job.

    EDIT: this is NOT for updating drives which have Firmware A101 !

    I have tried - AnyDVD displays A201 FW in its status window correctly!

    Sometimes patience pays off in life...

    Thanks very much, Terramex!

    I am afraid that you are right again - I will have to restore A101!

    Is there a version of A201 for my apparent NS40-model?

    Thanks anyway!

    I'm sorry to say that hardware-wise the NS40 models can never read UHD BDs :(
    ...and sorry for the hassle !

    Unfortunately, returning to A101 with the version you provided for (see posting 14 in this thread), does not work for me.

    I used your flasher "BH14NS40_N1.00-A4_patched" (see posting 12) - and I keep on getting this error message:

    "Checksum ist mismatched. Drive will go to BOOT mode. Please retry again."

    Any kind of advice?

    I have to admit that I have forgotten completely about that thread, so I am in a nice little mess now, am I not? :)

    What am I to do now?

    Try a modified firmware to downgrade back to A101 that's your only option to get it back working
