Leawo Software just launched the first version of UHD Drive Tool for Mac. The UHD Drive Tool for Mac V1.0.0 could help downgrade firmware of UHD drives so as to help people smoothly play back, convert and back up 4K/UHD Blu-ray discs on Mac.

(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Shenzhen, Guangdong Jul 7, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Founded in 2007, Leawo Software is a professional multimedia software developer that attends to exploit media dissemination and utility software. In the past decade, the spectrum of Leawo’s products ranged from mobile devices applications to 4K Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD programs according to the market demands. This time, on July 8, 2021, Leawo Software officially unveiled its UHD Drive Tool for Mac V1.0.0 to downgrade 4K/UHD drives on Mac. 


There are premises when people need to rip, copy, or backup their UHD Blu-ray discs. First, the Blu-ray Disc drive must be UHD compatible. The easiest way to check this is to look at the disc drive itself. It may be labeled “Ultra HD Blu-ray” or something similar. Second, people need to ensure the owned UHD Blu-ray drive is “friendly”. The “friendly” drives can read regular BDXL media without implementing AACS2 protection, while the ‘unfriendly’ drives implement the AACS2 protection (basically preventing third-party programs to do any sort of copying). Because of these premises, UHD drive tools exist, as a way to make 4K UHD Blu-ray optical drive ‘friendly’ through firmware flashing or downgrading.


Leawo UHD Drive Tool for Mac is designed to downgrade UHD-unfriendly firmware on 4K drive to a compatible version for 4K Blu-ray ripping, copying, or playing via third-party programs, like Leawo UHD Ripper, Leawo UHD Copy, and Leawo Free Blu-ray Player. Leawo UHD Drive Tool comes with an easy-to-use operation: connect the UHD drive to Mac computer and then choose a desired firmware from the available list to downgrade, restart the computer after flashing firmware to make sure the UHD drive works fine.

Price and Availability

Leawo UHD Drive Tool for Mac is available in both free trial and registered versions, both of which are free to download and install. The free trial version can download target firmware but won’t be able to install target firmware for UHD drive, while the registered version has no limit to downgrade firmware. The registered version has currently 2 pay mode options: $59.97 for a 1-year license and $65.97 for a lifetime license, 40% off the original pricing.


System Requirements

Leawo UHD Drive Tool for Mac requires macOS version 10.13 or later, at least 512MB RAM, 2GB or larger of free space, and 1 GHz or above Intel Processor and Apple M1 chip to run the program flawlessly. Besides, an internet connection is also required.
