What’s the purpose of the UHD Drive Tool, what can be done with it?
UHD Drive Tool is a handy GUI tool that allows users to downgrade the backup-unfriendly firmware on a 4K UHD drive, so that the drive becomes capable of backing up 4K Ultra Blu-ray discs.
What are the DVDFab version requirements?
The tool is available only in Windows DVDFab v11.0.1.x or later, running on Windows 7/8/8.1/10 x86 or x64. And note that the DVDFab platform must be the same as your system platform (DVDFab x64 is used on Windows x64, DVDFab x86 is used on Windows x86).
I have a UHD drive connected to the PC via USB cable, is it supported? Like LG BU50N, Buffalo BRUHD-PU3.
Yes, it’s supported if it’s in the supported drive list but does not support to downgrade the firmware via USB cable directly for now. We are still working for downgrading firmware via USB directly.
However, there is a workaround for you, but it requires an extra step: taking out the drive from the USB enclosure and connect it to SATA bus of your PC. This is no easy task for anyone. If you feel hesitant to try, it’s OK, just wait for an updated tool that can work with USB drives directly and easily.
I have a Pioneer UHD drive (BDR-S11J-BK) but it’s not in the supported drive list, can it be supported?
No, Pioneer drives are not supported yet, but we're working to enable them in the future.
In the BIOS settings of my mainboard, SATA Mode has AHCI only, I could not switch it to IDE, can I use the tool to downgrade the firmware for my UHD drive?
No, UHD Drive Tool works only in IDE mode, we are working for AHCI mode, please wait.
Can it work with any UHD backup software after downgrading the firmware for my drive?
Yes, you can back up the UHD discs with any UHD backup software (like DVDFab, DVDFab Player 5, DeUHD, etc) after downgrading the firmware successfully.
Do I still need to downgrade the firmware if my drive works with the backup software?
No, you don’t need re-flash the firmware if your drive works correctly already.
Can I try it first before order it?
No, the new tool does not provide the trial, but it will work correctly if you follow the steps above with the supported drive.
Is there any sort of introductory discount?
Yes! All unexpired DVDFab AIO users can enjoy 50% OFF at Member Center. While newcomers can enjoy 30% early-bird discount which shall be valid till Feb. 10
I have the new DVDFab Prime service, does it include the Tool?
