There are only two optical drives on the market at present that support Ultra HD Blu-Ray, Pioneer BDR-S11J-BK and DBR-S11J-X.

I have asked Pioneer support about support UHD BD on the BDR-207MBK. They answered me:

"As long as your computer software you are running supports this forplayback and decoding then the drive will read this information and pass italong to your software." i3 7100T + AsRock Z270 ITX + Pioneer BDR-211UBK

What's the rest of your hardware, are you using a dedcated GPU or your i7-5960X _ none of this should work according to Cyberlinks required specs ?

LG BH16NS40 is just a conventional BD drive, but NOT a UHDBD drive.
You may see the data files stored on a UHDBD by your BD drive in Windows, but it is NOT equal to suport "UHDBD".

There is no possibilities that a "Blu-ray" disc drive can playback "Ultra HD Blu-ray".
It regards not only firmware, but also "new hardware chipset" is required on disc drive to support such format.
Hence, firmware updates will not be a UHDBD solution for previous BD drive, either.

You should ask Pionner support again that a "BDR-207MBK" truly support "Ultra HD Blu-ray" movie playback?
Don't let them have any chance to fob off you with any vague answers. Ask them a "Yes/No" question directly.

The first UHD-BD drive in the world released on 2017 Q1.
Any optical device released before 2017Q1 is not possible to support UHDBD: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/1/25/14387744/pioneer-ultra-hd-bluray-drive-4k-pc

Is the above information very clear for everyone here who wants to play UHDBD on PC?

For building up an UHDBD, you may refer to CyberLink FAQ, there're some model numbers information

OP, please edit the thread title to include UHD BD, we are getting a lot of noise from people who apparently do not read through the body of the message.

I readed on AVSForum about support UHD BD on the LG BH16NS40 (new model after 2015). But need confirmation of it. i3 7100T + AsRock Z270 ITX + Pioneer BDR-211UBK

No, "Ultra HD Blu-ray" is not on the list.

I think it is very clear that Ultra HD Blu-ray has new spec for software and hardware.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD_Blu-ray
"Ultra HD Blu-ray discs are incompatible with existing Blu-ray players"

Ask LG for an official confirm or save your time to accept the fact that this drive is just a normal BD drive, but not a Ultra HD Blu-ray drive.

Unfortunately, that is what I expected all the time. Why would Pioneer even bother to release the UHD drives, right? But, just to satisfy my curiosity, what does the Advisor say to you? Can you post a screenshot, please?

I have that drive, or at least an LG one that can see the files on an UHD disc.

The advisor "Fails" the drive...

The BH16NS40 reads all the files on commercial 66GB and 50GB UHD disks I own just fine. I do not have any larger UHD discs. But of course cannot not decrypt them. Bought the drive in Oct 16.

On Planet UHD Earth II it shows 52GB used and files like AACS, Certificate,BDMV under the last one various files including STREAM. That in turn has about 30+ files m2ts - MPEG Video Files, including size in GB of all files

So it is a matter of not being to decryt them, even with DVD17 my 4K PC i76700 GTX960 GPU would not be able to do it.

However that disc looks fantastic on a 70" UHD TV and Samsung UHD player. I see no reason why to buy this software when the Samsung UHD player sells at Cosco for $220.00 and refurbished from Samsung for a lot less than that.

less than 1% of PC,s if that, can use this software for UHD anyway.
