It does seem like the software became an after thought a long while ago, but it's been roughly twenty years so I assume Ken is preoccupied with other things in life.  I wonder what happened to all of the planned (mentioned) improvements.

The PC and Android version haven't been updated since the initial 4.0 release.  The iTunes app was updated multiple times since it's initial 4.0 release to fix issues, but unfortunately the Android version has never received any love and hasn't been updated to fix the quirks or the feature set available in the iTunes version.

You would need to find someone that has a copy of 2.1.6 or earlier or have a backup copy of that version.  I don't believe Apple let's you download older versions.

What is the ASIN for the item you ordered?

Just to clarify, while I wrote AsinInfo, DJ Doena wrote ASIN to EAS/UPC Converter, and my program uses DJ's dll that handles the communication with Amazon's API. So my program just provides a slightly more advanced user interface.


Appreciate the clarification, I must have gotten things messed up when I was trying to post to the thread from a cell phone.

GSyren, ever consider the reverse, an EAN/UPC to ASIN converter?


What for? You can simply enter the EAN in the Amazon search and find your article.


That doesn't always work though, especially for newly announced titles.

For example, using Code Red DVD's The Last Hunter Blu-ray release the media companies would be:

Code Red DVD (publisher)
Variety Communications (licensor)
Kino Lorber (distributor)

Yes, there is a method to the madness.  Here is the portion of the contribution rules which outline the studio and media companies.  Using the rules outlined below, you can confirm the studios (theatrical and production) by using the film credits, studio sites, and other reference sources.  The media companies (publisher, licensor, etc.) can usually be found on the back cover of the release by using the below guide.  If you have questions on specific releases, you can always post in this forum and ask the forum members.

http://invelos.com/dvdpro/contributions/Rules.aspx?display=filmdetails

Quote:
Studios
List the Studios in the following priority.

  • Theatrical Release Studio(s)
  • Production Company(s)

  • Media Companies
    The company(ies) responsible for the publishing (creating, assembling and ordering of the DVD/HD/BD content) and/or physical distribution of the media.

    Enter in the following order:

  • Publisher (Content) - Usually found as a logo on the bottom of the back cover or in the credit block, often containing the words "home video" or "home entertainment. Secondary publishers (eg. The Criterion Collection's Eclipse label) may also be listed.
  • Licensor (Home Video Rights) - Usually found (dated with the year of the DVD release) on the back of the box or in the credit block with words words regarding "under license from...".
  • Distributor - Usually found as a logo on the bottom of the back cover or in the credit block with words regarding distribution.

  • Some companies (using similar but different names) may serve more than one function. List such companies only once, using the name from the logo. List secondary publishers even if the name is similar. If you are unsure of the function performed, do not list the company.

    Do not abbreviate Studio or Media Company names. e.g, use Universal Pictures not just Universal; The Criterion Collection rather than Criterion or Criterion Collection; Walt Disney Pictures not just Disney. Exception: If the studio name is too long to fit, use standard abbreviation rules.

    Omit company suffixes such as LLC, Ltd., Inc.

    Omit any locality-specific suffix. e.g. Enter Paramount Home Entertainment, not Paramount Home Entertainment (UK)

    There is further information about correct listings of studios and media companies, and the opportunity to ask questions if unsure, in the Contributions forum.

    You might be able to purchase a license through Amazon.  I'm not sure if Amazon allows digital purchases from International countries, but it's worth looking into.

    Honestly, I'd pay a license fee just to get more frequent support, updates, and fixes.

    My contribution was for 2 movies that were NOT listed in the online database (I live in New York so would be the United States online database) and were the full and correct contributions direct from my own retail movies and included front & back case cover pictures.  I did not include any 'birth years' as the case did not supply that info.  I do not profess to be a typist so perhaps there was a typo.  Thank you ALL for your responses. 


    Were your contributions declined or are they still pending.  Also, which releases are they (what's the UPC numbers)?

    This is out of the norm for me, but I have a number of contributions which have been skipped the past few weeks.  You could argue the couple with zero votes may require additional review/voting time, but these seem excessive based on past experiences.

    No, the latest version of the WH16NS40 with firmware v1.03 will not read UHD Blu-rays.  When I purchased a second drive from Amazon in February it came with the patch firmware.  You'll need a drive with firmware v1.02 or lower.


    Ugh, that's certainly lame. It sounds like LG did that on purpose just to disable the UHD capability of the drive.


    Yes, they did and they did that to all of their older "unofficial" BD drives that would read UHD Blu-rays.  If you happen to have an older computer where you can set the SATA configuration in the BIOS fto IDE vice AHCI then there is a method in downgrade the firmware.

    From what I understood, past "official" LG firmware allowed you to downgrade firmware until the latest version which now prohibits it.

    Question for anyone out there that owns this LG WH16NS40 drive:

    https://smile.amazon.com/LG-WH16NS40-Internal-Blu-ray-Rewriter/dp/B00E7B08MS/
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136269

    Does the latest version of this drive read UHD Disc IDs in the Profiler program?

    I ask only because I already own the older version (mid-2015) of this drive, which does not have the "SVC code: NS50" on the top of the drive label and has a different looking front plate. The older drive does not read UHD discs, they simply spin and spin. It's the same exact model number (WH16NS40) and everything, but apparently only the newer versions of the drive/model (with "SVC code: NS50" on the top label) can actually recognize the UHD disc structure from what I understand. I think the newer versions of this drive model are post-2016 or so.

    It's listed as UHD "friendly" drive (with "SVC code: NS50") here for instance: https://www.deuhd.ru/supported.html

    It's really all I currently need...since my existing PC's motherboard, etc. can't support "full" 4K UHD playback and I don't need to actually spend twice as much $$ just for a similar fully compliant UHD drive model.


    No, the latest version of the WH16NS40 with firmware v1.03 will not read UHD Blu-rays.  When I purchased a second drive from Amazon in February it came with the patched firmware.  You'll need a drive with firmware v1.02 or lower.

    No, this does not warrant an alternate version since the covers are the same.

    The existing cover scan was of the Criterion DVD which looks pretty similar at first glance but is clearly different if you look more carefully.


    Yep, clearly not the Criterion Blu-ray cover nor does the proportions match up.

    The news stations are reporting nine deaths so far, including two children, and ~1M still without power.  I've seen reports that as many as 2.1M were originally affected.

    It seems they were affected by the power outage that resulted from the storm system that hit Virginia.  It's good to see the power is back on and hopefully the Coles' weathered the storm OK.

    Just curious, but why do your tabs look different than the normal tabs?


    That's what the tabs look like when you select "Text Only" rather than "Icons Only" or "Icons and Text".


    That's odd as mine don't look that way and are rectangular when the Text Only option is selected.  The image also shows text and images.
