  • UHD Drive Tool Which UHD drive to buy?

    Looking to start ripping my 4K blu rays and wondered what drive should I buy? The Asus BW-16D1HT looks inexpensive and rated well on amazon! Any other suggestions for a reliable drive that can handle a good amount of ripping of both standard and UHD blu rays? I already bought the UHD drive tool so I just need a UHD friendly drive.

      Ironically thatís the drive I had my eye on as well. After doing a ton of research it looks like itís compatible with UHD and the Drive tool plus I donít need to search out a specific build code like the LGs.

        The sleep bug is only if you upgrade to windows 10, never had a problem rips like a MUTHA. but the choice is yours.

            Sleep Bug with the Asus drives never had that problem and have two of them for UHD as well as the LG WH16NS60 no issue with either the Asus or the LG?

              Well I do run windows 10, will that be an issue with the Asus? I had thought about the nativeLG drive but locating the specific build code version proved tricky.

                the sleep bug only happens with uhd disks left idle for 2+ mins and when you try to read it it makes a horrable seeking sound then you need to open and close tray to fix. its not a problem for riping but for play back if you pause a movie or something.
                Thanks for the heads up! I only plan to rip so hopefully the sleep bug wonít be an issue. Iíll try the LG drive you mentioned (official UHD supported) if the asus doesnít work for me. Itís twice as much money so I will try the Asus first
