Nice drive - support ok - support website lessOEM purchased in bulk, so no direct support there. LG was more helpful, but had to get a supervisor to actually resolve. The website support points to links that actually do not download what they say they will provide.
But the supervisor at LG finally solved the issue - now I am happier.
I am a long time Systems Engineer, that is highly technical - so these "user" support issues can drive me crazy.

How can I make this Blu-ray drive work on Windows 10? I bought it a few years ago and just installed it. I can open and close the Blu-ray. I downloaded the firmware/driver that is supposed to work with it, but Windows 10 doesn't recognize the device.

I'm getting a weird pause and dropout as the Blu-Ray shifts from chapter to chapter. Research seems to show that a firmware update is needed, but I have the latest from LG.

I have the WH16NS40 config'ed in an external drive housing as an OWC Mercury Pro Professional External USB 3.1 Gen 1 Optical drive. OWC is so hyper-MAC, cannot tell what burner software I can use for PC. I want to be able to burn all formats esp. M.

What type of m-disk will this burner burn?
Asked by: Terrybee
I quite successfully burned an M-Disc BDXL 100 Gb with no problems as well as a DVD M-Disc. So I'm assuming it will work with all M-Disc formats.

I have a new WH16NS40, and when I play Blu-Ray Movie every 10 - 12 seconds the playback will hesitate for less than a second.
