Rated 1 out of 5 by from Follow Up To My Post From Dec 2021 (WH14NS40) I returned 2 new burners to LG in Dec 2021, which I purchased from Newegg. Each burner died within 2 months from the date I received each one. I send both to LG for replacements. LG sent me used replacements. The 2 replacements were both model WH16NS40. I was able to burn about 15 Blu Ray discs with the first burner before it died. I installed the second burner. I was about to burn 6 Blu Rays before it died. Both would spin up and down, then fail. They ruined many of my blank Blu Ray discs. I installed both in another computer. They both failed. I ran Dell Support Assistant on my computer. After testing each drive, it stated hardware failure for both. Before 2021, the LG burners I purchased lasted me 1 year plus. The 2 I purchased in 2021 and the 2 replacements are junk. LG might be using cheaper parts to cut costs. I will not return these used burners and pay for return shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as expected Purchased this because a media drive failed in my desktop computer. Assembly was quick and easy. Connection to an 8 port usb3 hub purchased at the same time was simple. Fired my system up and was a little concerned at first but after allowing my system time to recognize everything, all was well. Drive is fast but is noticeable when it spins up but it is also sitting on my desk next to my keyboard. Firmware was up to date when it arrives at my home. Drive seems mechanically sound but only time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performance until they die I have 2 of these in my custom pc of 9 years, and worked fantastic, until they stopped being recognized by my pc. Talk about consistency, both players stopped within a week of each other. Any further comments are against writing guidelines, so we'll leave it at that.

Can this drive play "4K Ultra HD" Media?

Asked by: Dr P
It did not play 4K for me, so I guess the answer is No.

This drive claims that region B (Europe) blu ray disks won't play because they are the wrong region when I've bought and been supplied with it in the UK and the disks are region B. Why is this drive so stupid?

Asked by: Aminadab
The LG Super Multi Blue Internal 14x Blu-ray Disc Rewriter, Model # WH14NS40 supports Regional Playback Control Phase II for DVD-Video and since it supports Regional Playback Control Phase II for DVD-Video with CSS, a certain MPEG decoder card or Software without regional code setting may cause this drive not to read DVD-Video with CSS discs. This Drive enables you to change the regional code up to 5 times...^IFV

This came in a desktop that I recently purchased, but it does not play anything. I can find where the PC registers the DVD disk and files, but I can't play any DVDs. I also cannot play Blu Ray disks. What do I need to do so I can watch my movies?

Asked by: Jimangle
You will need to install (probably purchase) software for burning and for playing. Nero, DVDFab, and other software will write or burn. See here for a few BD playback sofware packages ( For burning, a couple of lists can be found here (,2817,2407553,00.asp) and here ( I use (just downloading because I had the same problem) potplayer for playing BD discs and IMGBurn, DVDFab, and Nero for burning.
