  • UHD Drive Tool Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 - Downgrade

    Is it possible to downgrade (or re-grade will probably be a better description of what I want to do), the above drive from Official to Friendly using Drive Tool?

        Really, without taking out the drive from the USB enclosure and connecting it to SATA bus of your PC? That's what I'm waiting for.

        I'm trying to delete my post, I just realized that you did the work around. :-)

          Ah, no. Took the drive out as per the instructions that were on DVDFab.

          To be honest, now that I've done it once I could easily do it again. Even left the old laptop that I resurrected to make the change in the same configuration.

          It's now a case of popping the drive into the laptop and hitting a button!
