win 10 build 1809 lg wh16n40 reads, burns, won't play br. Partial or total loss of function of optical drive is a known issue with 1809 update. This is with or without anydvd, including original br disk. But clonebd preview does play! I discovered this when I burned a disk with clonebd. I usually only get 11.6k burn speed but this disk peaked at 70000k!? It settled at 18.9k (which I never got before). Wouldn't play so I re-burned with imgburn after discarding the "coaster" I never checked if it would play on my other drive, since it burned in a very few minutes. I put imgburn created disk on my read drive, a venerable tsst sh-b123l combo litescribe drive where it plays just fine. So I checked the buy date of my lg and figured it was time for a new one. Same issue. Set old one aside for a spare. The work-arounds on the web are mostly not applicable. I think I need to roll back to 1803. Are there any members out there who solved this? Thanx! B ps: It took me this long to get 1809 installed. It won't install on my other pc so I can't usr the cloud clipboard feature anyway!
