    I have been a customer for a very long time with your Slysoft.

    I have got a question to ask. I have a large Bluray Collection. When I buy a Bluray the first thing I do is a ISO straight copy with Anydvd HD and copy to my QNAP NAS Drives and then play with my Dune Media 4k streamer which can mount all my iso's.

    I want to buy new bluray writers my plector and pioneer have both failed. I am really confused now what to buy when people talk about UHD Friendly. There is a really brainy person on the forums that can make the drives read the new UHD discs by changing firmware. Is there anywhere you can just buy these reader/Writers with the firmware taken care off.
    Could you please recommend a Bluray writer for me to buy that is UHD friendly. I honestly admit I have no idea what it all means.

    I did read forums and found a list of friendly drives.

    Here is list of UHD friendly drive

    LG BE16NU50
    LG WH16NS40
    LG BH16NS40
    ASUS BW-12B1ST
    ASUS BC-12D2HT
    ASUS BW-16D1HT
    ASUS BW-16D1HT-PRO
    LG BH16NS55
    LG WH16NS58

    However the thought of extracting and programming firmware is beyond me.

    I saw this in eBay and was thinking is this what I require.

    Help would be appreciated. Is there a chance that the person who is really good on the firmware would sell drives. I know they might be more expensive but I understand he has to be paid for his expertise. My expertise is very little.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    Don't buy from those guys on eBay!!! Try me, I charge less and spend more time testing post flashing. I also provide technical support if you need it, I'm able to honor the original warranty even though the drive is modified. And if you're skeptical I'll send first if you agree to paypal me within 48 after receipt of the product , because I am the original UHD friendly drive seller with over 500 sales to date and 0 returns. Ask around about me. I've got you covered.
