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.

Did you have any no votes?  I know this site has really gone down hill when it comes to no voting for very petty reasons.

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.

Gotta tell Bill to start adding UPCs to his releases. I don't have any of these otherwise I would add them.

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.

There could be an issue with one or more profiles.  You could test by trying to continuously split the affected collection section in half.

i.e.

9500-9749 (bad)
9750-9999 (good)

9500-9624 (good)
9625-9748 (bad)

etc.

Pearl Harbor was contributed by a notorious IMDB-copier. I wouldn't trust any of that person's contributions.


She's credited as Christine Beveridge in Pearl Harbor.

The original front cover has compression artifacts along with vertical yellow stripes.  The new scans are clearly "significantly" better.

EDIT:  You'll have to resubmit since new contributions have most likely been processed since your last contribution.  Next time, you can open a support ticket and Invelos can review if the contributions haven't been rolled into the next online update.  Once they've been rolled in then they don't seem to have access to review the contribution rulings.

You can use a third party image hosting site to post higher quality images for comparison such as imgur.com.  Or you can post a direct link to those sites for review.

I disagree with the "significantly higher" theory, and I have my own speculations, but I've seen many image contributions be approved that I wouldn't classify as being "significantly higher", but were improvements none the less.

It seems like not much has changed from two years ago when it comes to approval timelines and the net result hasn't lead to these being approved consistently more quickly.  Have the number of contributions increased that much?

As Addicted2DVD stated, submitting the original release date is correct.  The date of the price drop shouldn't have been approved; do you know if that contribution received a majority of yes votes?

Are the two releases vastly different; I was under the impression the only difference was the price drop and the date of said price drop?  Unless something has changed I don't recall a price drop being reason for an alternate version.

Alternate versions are supposed to be for releases of the same title with largely different cover images or with significantly different content.

According to Blu-ray.com this is a Walmart.com exclusive.  Per Walmart, this was released on 4/29/2013.

The version of Black Hawk Down that I have has a UPC of 043396150232.  I preordered this version which has a 1/16/2007 release date.  Not sure about the set with a UPC of 043396426696, but I'm guessing the release date is much later given the much higher numbering of the UPC.

Edit:  According to pictures, the back cover has a (c) of 2013 for the design and layout which means this was released in 2013 (most likely).

... and 13digit ISBN use the EAN checksum algorithm. So, what is the difference between an EAN and in 13-digit-ISBN? - The dashes!

It is really cute how afraid of any European thing the Americans seem to be...


No one is afraid of Europeans or any European things.  The UPC, EAN, and ISBN all fall under the GTIN format.

I used the above to discover there's no UPC, but there is the EAN.  I didn't know about yours at the time, but will check it out when I get home.


Going by the English/German/French/Italian subtitles, I assume that this is a producted originally marketed to Europe which is now also available in the US. But since it does not originate in the US -> no UPC.


Incorrect, this is a US produced release.
