Using a MacBook from 2005 with OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard (don´t laugh Smile), I upgraded to an iMac having installed OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan. I´m also running a Beomedia 1 which used to work fine with my MacBook via the BeoConnect app.

Now, with the new OS X, BeoConnect seems to build up a connection between IMac and Beomedia. Trying to transfer music files from iTunes to the BM, a program "iTunesDroper" opens, asking for my password. According to this forum and several internet sources, I checked BeoConnect within the system preferences. iTunesDroper I cannot find. The program is accepting my password. If then I drag and drop the file into the BC app, nothing is happening.

On the B&O website is no support for the BC app on new OS X available. I updated to Yosemite, same result as above.

Anyone solved this issue already or having an idea how to make it work?

Thanks and kind regards,

Rolf

Hello Dennis,

I came up with this solution:

Open Finder

Click on "Beomedia" in the left scroll bar

Open BM Shares

Two files appear in my case: "B&O Samples" and "Mac"; Mac contains my music

Open Mac file

Open iTunes (view in reduced size)

Drag & drop the album file into the Mac file

A pop up appears, saying that the file is in the transferring process

After that it´s done and you can hear the music from the Beomedia 1

The same works for the picture transfer using photos. There will be no pop up but a file extension saying ".exporting".

I hope this will help.

Kind regards,

Rolf
