Why we need to downgrade firmware on UHD Drive
If you want to back up a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc, you need an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive and UHD backup software. However, if the Blu-ray drive is originally manufactured or it was updated with the latest firmware, then it may not be able to work with the UHD backup software anymore. Actually, many newly released Ultra HD Blu-ray optical drives have been no longer UHD friendly.
Meanwhile, all the 4K/UHD Blu-ray discs are copy protected with AACS 2.0 protection, which is quite different form the AACS protection that could be decrypted and handled by normal Blu-ray disc decryption software like Leawo Blu-ray Ripper.
☉ Decrypt and rip Blu-ray/DVD discs with disc protection and region code
☉ Convert Blu-ray/DVD to MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV, FLV, and other 180+ HD/SD formats
☉ Convert Blu-ray/DVD main movie to videos for space saving
☉ Convert 2D Blu-ray/DVD movies to 3D movies with 6 different 3D effects
☉ Fast conversion with NVIDIA CUDA, AMD APP and Intel Quick Sync acceleration technologies
In such case, you have 3 different choices to solve the 4K Blu-ray disc not recognized by LG BH14NS58 firmware for playback: purchase a new Blu-ray drive that is compatible with your 4K Blu-ray discs, buy a new 4K Blu-ray disc that is compatible with your current 4K Blu-ray drive(LG BH14NS58 firmware), or choose to downgrade your existing LG BH14NS58 firmware to make it friendly with your 4K Blu-ray discs.
Without a doubt, the 3rd solution is the best for you since you couldn’t purchase a Blu-ray drive or a Blu-ray disc every time you get a new one. That’s why you need to downgrade UHD firmware.
