Hello

My BS5 suffered from staggering replay from the memory.

I have followed the various attempts to change the HDD to SSD. I bought SSD crucial MX 300 1 TB.- 1050GB to be precise. Also: sharkoon  Quickport XT duo clone.

Workaround: Connect the cloner to PC and plug new SSD in any slot. Formate SSD Fat32. Unplug cloner from PC. Plug original HDD in clonerslot1 new SSD slot2. Start cloner and wait, watch the LED for progress. It takes about 3 hrs.

Put back SSD in BS5, plug everthing together, plug in mains, wait until System is ready and enjoy the quick response at the wheel and the fast browsing through albums. The memory plays smooth.

No more worries about mechanical failure!

Best regards

Ruedi

Was your original HDD 500gb or 1TB ?

And still no problem with SW updates ?

Thanks for the tip. That is a quite nice and straight forward approach.

I hope that the MX300 will work flawlessly for you, someone mentioned that only the MX100 would be supported by the BM5.

Please let us know how it goes, I am also having a 1TB and the response is sometimes slow on mine as well.

It was 1TB and I have Spotify - all works perfect. I have not tried the update function since it says, that my cloned software is updated.

I have tried the update - and it works! First I made a reboot from recovery witch sets the sofware to delivery status: update lost, settings lost, music files 

remain untouched. It takes a while. Then settings - update and the download starts as ever. In short time the update is done and Spotify + A Aux

is back. So far I did not use the service mode nor the USB service tool. The easy way.
