A warning for anyone who uses a LG drive to read the disc-id of Ultra HD Blu-rays: LG released firmware updates for some drives to "Improve BD UHD disc compatibility". However, in reality these updates close a loophole in AACS. The result is that DVD Profiler can not use the drive anymore to read the disc-id.

I see that native UHD ripping is now out. (I am fortunate to have a couple of 'friendly' blu-ray players in the pc. DO NOT do a firmware update as this removes the loophole to enable ripping.

I have done a few titles, and seems to work OK. Keeps HDR and Dolby Vision intact.
I placed the HDD with them on onto the Oppo, and the picture came up with the HDR / Dolby Vision logo. Also keeps the full HD soundtrack.

I personally would not bother doing this, prefer to own the legit copies. And at 50gig a rip, a lot of wasted space. Only averages 1hr to do the ripping.

EDIT:
OK looks like only the 70 titles that were compromised are covered. But more are being added all the time. I happened to test on 'good' titles. Tryed The Shape of Water, and not supported at this time.
