You can do this. You need WinDVD Pro 12 or other current software that can play UHD and a compatible drive.


I have tried various 4k players, and none of them will open a 4k disk. Have to have right combination of Hardware. I have no issues playing 4k with any of these programs (Have plenty of 4k trailers etc).
Just tried again using Windvd and others, and no go. As far as I can assertain, no players will Decrypt disks presently, as if you can do this on a PC, then should be possible to reverse engineer this and come up with a ripper.
On the Disk ID front, just tried Pacific Rim 4k disk and it found a 4k match in the Database with ID
386F4CF4DA734303
So if drive can read disk, no issues with getting Disk ID.

I can read 4k disks fine. Even copy them to HDD. But until someone 'cracks' the potection properly, there is no way to use these files.
From what I read, this would possibly the only way to view them on PC. Looks like the industry (Read Studios in here) are throwing roadblocks in the way. I do not blame them as it is a big chunk of money they lose. And I myself personaly NEVER download movies. I wait for them to appear on disk and buy them. Which is why I am up to 65 4k and growing. And over 3000 all up.
Also there is one 'ripping' program out there, but it is disk specific in that the Russian group involved just grabs the decrypt key for the specific disk used.

EDIT: DVDFab and SlyFox will possibly NEVER offer 4k support. They have come out and said that they are not developing it. I suspect that they 'made a deal' to be allowed to keep doing Bluray but not 4k so the studios would leave them alone. Just my personal take.

Good luck. I have Blurays capable of reading the disks, but no way to play them yet.

"In order to play UHD Blu-rays, your system must support AACS 2.0 and Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX). You’ll need software to play the disc itself (CyberLink has an updated software solution set to ship in the near future), and a GPU with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support. AACS 2.0 also has to be implemented within the GPU driver, and no current stand-alone GPU drivers have this functionality. Finally, you need a 4K TV with both HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support as well.

This is a tall order. No Intel chips before Skylake support SGX, and just owning a Skylake board isn’t enough — many desktop boards never implemented the feature and don’t support it in UEFI. The HDCP 2.2 support requirement is also dodgy, since not every Intel board supports that standard, either.

In theory, the UHD Blu-ray playback situation should be better than the 4K streaming situation, since at least 6th and 7th-generation Core chips are both supported. In practice, it seems to be every bit as much of a muddle and a problem. Support is limited to specific SKUs and motherboards with particular features, and the dependence on integrated graphics for decode support means that you can’t use UHD Blu-ray with any Intel HEDT system (HEDT refers to Intel’s E-class chips — Sandy Bridge-E, Ivy Bridge-E, Haswell-E, etc).

For years, there’s been a push-pull between content pirates and the content production industry, with law-abiding fans generally caught in the middle. For years, the content consumption side of the business has warned that if technology became too draconian, people simply wouldn’t use it. That seems to be the point at which we’ve arrived. Given the snail-like speed of PC refresh cycles these days, 4K streaming support will take 3-5 years to establish itself in the market, while UHD Blu-ray playback may never happen at all, thanks to ridiculously strict requirements that block out entire swathes of the hardware market."

Finally got the Oppo UDP 205 (Hardware Modified) and hooked it up to my LG Oled 4k 3d 65".
Hard to describe the feeling when I put in my only Dobly Vision disk so far (Spiderman Homecoming) and had the TV come up with Dolby Vision  in the corner.
Both worth the monies.

Microsoft should be informed that they have broken some/an app(s) by making some arcane technical change, so they can restore the required features.


We run Enterprise version at work with Primier support from M$. When they came in to talk about the new servicing model, all they said was if an Application broke, then it was up to the application developer to fix their program. M$ had no interest in changing their code to suit.

Works fine on very latest 1709 release build.
Insider preview builds are just that, and no support from M$ for apps not working. They will tell you to go to the application provider.
I would not totally blame Invelos if you are using a Beta build.

Changing passwords is the way to go. Should be done on a regular basis.
Also MACs are subseptable to Malware.
I remeber a CBS doco on the Russian WInter Olympics where they took over a brand new unopened Macbook and phone.
Within 60secs of opening and joining the hotel wifi, they were infected.

Build 4.0.0.75 not showing 4k icon on the normal list view. Bluray and DVD are OK.
Shows icon when in details of movie.

Thanks for the review, your thoughts, on the UDP 203.
I am getting the UDP 205 shortly with the higher rated DACs. Just been released by local supplier.
Also is yours Region Free on BD? I am getting a Hardware moded 205.
I currently have the 103 moded, so need to get a region free one to play all my region A disks.

So based on your results, am looking forward to it.

my collection is starting to grow more and more of the new 4k ultra hd disks but unable to catalogue any uk disks as they dont appear on the invelos database.  Anyone else having this issue ?

I still have more Video Home System tape cassettes than Ultra HD Blu-ray discs.


I think I probably have more VHS than I do regular BluRay, much less UHD BluRay.  Getting a 4K TV next week though and a 4K player will follow within a month or two, so the games will soon begin...well, movies. 


Just be sure that the 4k tv is HDR enabled. NOT all 4k tv's are.
I upgraded to a 65" LG HDR 4k as it was damaged in the earthquake we had here. (Ceiling tiles in the shop fell down the back causing marks, screen OK).



Second that

I see this many of times where people are saying HDR is not working. Manufacturers do not enable UHD colour or HDR by default .

Samsung for instance you need to activate UHD colour for each HDMI port you connect a HDR device too.

Also when you get an firmware upgrade it dome times goes back to default.


Also the earlier 4K TV's do not even support HDR. Not even in Firmware update. It is something that has to be built into the TV via chipset. SO you have to be careful in the wording, a lot of TV's are HD which can mean 4k but NOT HDR. You need to make sure HDR is there. (Google is your friend, and good to look up on Internet on your phone while browsing in store).
As an aside I found a good Youtube video showing the side by side compares of OLED, QLED and Quantum Dot.

I use a very old Canon Scanjet 7400c that I have had for years.

If I'm not mistaken, a ScanJet 7400c is an HP scanner.

My bad, you are right.

My problem with Canon scanners is that their scan unit gets imaging errors very quickly (about a xear after purchase) which then leaves lines in the scan.


I use a very old Canon Scanjet 7400c that I have had for years. It is big, slow and noisy, but at 600 resolution it beats modern scanners at 1200+. This is why I keep it around. Also for its age it does not have any 'dead' spots on it, and it scans al the way to the sides. I also have the ADF feeder and negative/film scan unit.
I think that scanners are now throw away technology, and this was built for Corporate use when scanners were expensive.
Only drawback is does not work in WIndows 10 (no driver support), but will work if using VueScan program.
