    Would like to update FW (currently on v1.01) to increase media compatibility, but LG homepage only has v1.03 which ain't UHD friendly any longer... anyone who still has the original fw utility v1.02 from LG?

    ty in advance!

    Extract the attachment, completely close AnyDVD HD (or the like). Drive must be emtpy !

    1. Execute BH14NS40_N1.00-A4_patched.exe and click on the folder symbol (NOT! the "PLAY" button)
    2. Select flash_HL-DT-ST_BD-RE_BH16NS55_1.02.bin (or flash_ASUS_BW-16D1HT_3.02.bin if you want to crossflash to ASUS)
    3. Click on the "PLAY" button

    I fear the answer is no, but can this tool be used to downgrade firmware?

    Do you know, if these firmwares can be used for the Asus BC-12D2HT?

    Unfortunately this is only for up/downgrading/crossflashing a drive with already UHD friendly firmware.
    For downgrading UHD unfriendly firmware there's still only the dosflash way.

    Basically the firmwares can be used, if your ASUS is an UHD friendly NS50 model.

    Ich würde dir wärmstens empfehlen zur ASUS Firmware zu wechseln - läuft einfach "runder" und schneller.

    @All LG 1.02 firmware users
    I highly recommend to crossflash to ASUS BW-16D1HT 3.02 also included in the attachment.
    It's simply smoother (like a car engine with precision tuning) and faster.
    ...and you can flash back to the LG firmware at any time.

    Works well with the ASUS firmware.
    But what is better about it now than with the LG FW?
    Can not find anything at first go.
    Except that now in the device manager ASUS instead of LG is.

    (Funktioniert gut mit der ASUS Firmware.
    Aber was ist jetzt daran besser als mit der LG FW?
    Kann auf den ersten Anhieb nix feststellen.
    Außer das jetzt im Gerätemanager ASUS statt LG steht.)

    Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately, the post is only in the English section and I have to work with Google Translate.

    hi i am new here. i have an LG BH16NS55 with 1.03 firmware.
    should i still be able to rip HD Blue ray discs without downgrading the firmware?
    i am not worried about UHD at the moment.
    thanks in advance.

    Yes. Your drive is fine as is for standard blu-ray discs. If you want to rip UHD, downgrading to 1.02 is currently required.
