Questions & Answers

The Lenovo Ideapad 330 and 320 are compatible with this software?

The most likely answer is no if you are looking for a 4k dvd player for your laptop. Movies on Blue Ray might be an option. It is not possible to play 4K movies on those laptops. It is not the fault of the program that you are using, or the player itself. There is a Lenovo equipment spec for this. System that work with the HDR parameter are not accepted. This is due to Lenovo's lack of support. If you are using a nine, you may use that. They come with a DVD player and burner that are both 0mm. We hope that this info is helpful for you in making your decision!

Selected User Reviews For HLDS BU40N Ultra Slim Internal Ultra HD Blu-Ray Optical Drive/ 9.5mm/ UHD Drive

It is NOT possible to make MakeMKV or AnyDVD "UHD Friendly", regardless of the firmware
3/5

You may need to look elsewhere if you are looking for an "UHD Friendly" drive that can fit inside a "slim" laptop or laptop case. In spite of a lot of support sites listing it as being able to read UHD Blu-ray movies, this is NOT the original LG BU40N The right firmware must be installed on Blu-Ray discs. The pre-existing system appears to be complicated LG's ultra-branded version of the Bu40N is hard to find and sold out for a long time. You will encounter a Bus Encryption error regardless of firmware when you try to open your UHD Blu-ray Player There is nothing on this drive that is in compliance with the official (and extremely limited) When this device was updated to use the ULTRA logo, the manufacturer added something in addition to the simple Firmware blocks to deter 3rd parties from playing your UHD Blu-rays You can ray Last I checked, the "official" image format requirements for UHD movies were as follows You will not be able to get around This is the only Blu-ray that is "UHD Friendly" There are now 5 Ray drives widely available in stock. Drives with a 25" desktop size AND pre-installed drivers Firmware that blocks access. As of this writing, if you are building an HTPC computer and want UHD, the best budget combination is the AMD 3400G processor and the LG WH16NS40 hard Watching a couple of UHD movies on an old 1080p TV has proved to work perfectly with this combo. My test rig had an ASROCK B450 Mini-ITX motherboard as part of my test rig, but I prefer ASROCK products I've found on Amazon. The motherboard has an ITX form factor. DDR skills - Skill Aegis There are 3000 memory chips. It is also important to have fast memory because it affects the integrated graphics as well.

A firmware update is not possible
3/5

The firmware on this drive will not update since I got it to try it. This error states "A valid ATAPI device could not be found!". A BD-based F/W model is available Please make sure you reference This model number appears on the drive, and I checked the firmware at LG's web page and HLDS's website. All of them also said the same. This will be the first 4k Blu-Ray to be seen The vlc program and the blu-ray player don't work together. In the event that I cannot obtain the updated firmware for the drive, I will be returning.

I was able to fit it perfectly into my Dell XPS! Blu-ray was the only thing I was interested in In my new Dell, there is a Blu-ray player
5/5

That is not a service they provide. The only thing they offer is a DVD writer/reader. As a laptop format drive, the drive in the XPS desktop machine will fit in the Dell. I found online that this model fits in this machine. After carefully removing all of the face plates from each drive, this drive was a perfect fit. I'm also very pleased with how it works. This is a very happy day for me.

The Firmware is Unencrypted, so it can be easily flashed with MakeMKV's LibreDrive The firmware for this drive could be flashed quite easily to Libredrive even though I haven't tested this for UHD Blu Ray discs
5/5

There was an older version 1 in my BU40N. It has a version 01 official firmware, which is unencrypted so that other firmware can be loaded on It would have been updated to 1 if it had been updated. If you had been using an earlier version of Windows, it would have been much more challenging.

I found that it worked
5/5

Although the tray may be fragile even in a slim line case, it seems to be no more fragile than a regular sized drive, so you should It is important to me that it works for what I need It's great that it's USB powered, one less power brick to carry around.

This software is ideal for HD ripping and copying
5/5

Designed to fit my HP 15-inch monitor It works perfectly with an KY041WM notebook it can rollback the firmware to enable HD ripping and copying. For the price, this is a great drive.
