I have a problem with my Beosound 5 / Beomaster 5 and a CD Ripping Device:

I have connected a normal CD USB Drive (not the original B&O drive) to my Beomaster 5 via USB. Everything works fine, i can rip a CD, can play the CD if i press CD on my Beo4.

But I can't see the CD entry in the Mode Menu, where i can see all the sources (N.MUSIC, N.RADIO, Spotify and A.AUX). So i can only start playing the CD inside the drive by pressing CD on Beo4. I have tested three different non B&O drives but nothing changed.

It can be possible that B&O make this restriction for all non B&O CD ripping drives?

I have the latest Firmware (7.04.01.1945) and to test every possibility i made a recovery. Nothing worked.

Is there anybody who has the same problem and can help me or has a solution?

A third party USB CD drive will work for ripping, but not, as you have discovered, for CD playback.

I actually wasn't aware that you could trigger it to play using the remote - my BS5 is actually in audiomaster=no as I have a BS9000 as audiomaster in the same setup, so this wouldn't work for me anyway but is useful to know.

I suspect the software looks for the specific USB ID / string of the official CD ripper but I don't know for certain.

Is there anybody who knows the manufacturer of the original B&O drive? Maybe an Teac?

My pre-owned BS5-BM5+RD is ob its way , I should get it next week.

So if I could be of any help.

Is it possible to get into windowsXP on the BM5 ?

If yes, I could reed the properties and name of the RD in windows explorer and you could perhaps change yours to the same name
