  1. Hello.
    I'm new to the 4K Bluray game.
    I wanted to ask this:

    I have a full untouched 4K Bluray folder in my hard disc.
    With MPC I can play just the film without any problems at all.
    What player is there that supports 4k Bluray menu playback?
    I can't play it with PowerDVD ultra 19, nor with Leawo.

    Also, I bought this (i don't have it yet):
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264849119450
    Will i be able to play a UHD Bluray menu from a disc with it?

    Edit: Ok, I found the answer to my first question:
    DVDFab Player 6, plays the menu just fine.

    DVDFab Player 6 is supposed to be able to play a UHD Blu-ray disc with the LG-BU40N but you may need to use their UHD drive tool. See https://www.dvdfab.cn/4k-uhd-drives.htm

    Note that I have never tried DVDFab Player 6 because I don't need to. When I decided to build a new PC in 2018, I chose components that comply with Power DVD Ultra's requirements for UHD Blu-ray playback.

  3. Thank you for your reply.
    I read about the UHD drive tool, although I don't understand much about firmware etc.
    I don't want to copy or rip UHD Bluray discs to my hard drive.
    I just want to be able to play them.
    Anyway, I hope I can with this drive.

    I am less sure about DVDFab Player 6 Ultra's ability to play UHD Blu-ray discs now than I was last night. There is changelog information about DVDFab Player 6 posted in VideoHelp's software section that mentions "UHD Blu-ray discs". Today, when I went to DVDFab's website to check DVDFab Player 6 Ultra's features description, the webpage only says that it plays "UHD Blu-ray". Since DVDFab Player 6 Ultra's webpage doesn't specifically say "UHD Blu-ray discs" that could mean that it can only play pre-decrypted copies of UHD Blu-ray discs.

    However, in order to play UHD Blu-ray discs directly, DVDFab Player 6 Ultra software has to be able to decrypt them. Since DVDFab's UHD Blu-ray ripping software needs "friendly" drive firmware to decrypt UHD Blu-ray discs, I expect that DVDFab Player 6 Ultra also needs "friendly" drive firmware to decrypt them.
