Laptop Asus N53Jq Blu Ray drive replacement DRM FREE

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this issue since the laptop is big and heavy (not so portable) also it's a desktop replacement.

 

Its Blu Ray burner drive it's a Panasonic (I don't remember the exact model) but is the same as NEC and Matshita models, they are all rebadged.

The problem with this specific piece of "crap" is that it's hardware DRM protected and can't rip Blu Rays (or even just copy the files one by one), Any DVD doesn't work as well as I already researched on rpc1.org but there is not solution, there is no firmware for it.

No more Panasonic, NEC, Matshita in my life!

 

So I'm looking to buy another drive this time I must be sure to buy one that isn't hardware protected.

I found that the Pioneer BDR-TD05 is quite common on ebay and similar China or Hong Kong web sites but the strange thing is that I couldn't find any review/reccomandation about the Pioneer BDR-TD05, I guess they might be only available in Japanese or Chinese languages.

I need some of you guys advice me in case you already had similar issues and if there is any shop locally or to order within Australia that would be better.

Thanks in advance.

Funny ANY DVD works fine for me but you must use the ANYDVD HD licence not the ANYDVD licence.

There is a difference. http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvdhd.html

 

Otherwise you could try DVDFab products

Good luck with that because I thought that the DRM was a requirement of BD manufacturing licence.

Yes I'm using Any DVD HD, sorry for not specifing the exact software.

 

Indeed Bly Ray drives are DRM protected but this specific drive doesn't work with Any DVD or "any" other similar software.

Stay away from Matshita/Panasonic drives, I've lernt the lesson.

Jeebuz that's craptastic. So far I haven't had any issues with ANYDVD HD and my Liteon iHBS312 in my desktop.

 

Don't think my notebook has a BD drive but will check tomorrow and see if it has and what it is, then try it with AnyDVD HD.
