I have been trying to upgrade Beomaster HD to SSD for quite long time. Funny thing is I can clone my original (1TB) drive to another 3.5 inch without any problems, but could not succeed cloning to Samsung  EVO and Pro. After start would get booth error etc.

There have been write-ups about this, basically most posts said - it cannot be done. Some guys recommended Crucial SSD ......... saying this is the only drive could work.

I have contacted Samsung and was told that the issue is with cloning software, cloning software guys said - Samsung drive is at fault. I have tried few cloning software including Acronis, Aomei, Macrium Reflect, Drive Clone etc. all attempts failed.

Reading one of the forums someone recommend EaseUS Todo Backup Free ... and to my surprise cloning worked - I have cloned original drive to Samsung EVO 1Tb (sector by sector - there are two options in the software , do not remember exactly what the second is - if you try select both) - and for the last 3 days everything is working as a charm.

If someone would want to try, please let me/us know if I am just being lucky or the issue is with cloning software. I will monitor and let you know if my luck will continues.

Regards

Makes sense. EaseUS cloner has an option to clone "sector by sector" and this is probably why drive lasted working for a while.

Hi Andy

Thank you for the advice. It looks as the problem is getting too serious for my knowledge in computers. I will try to get support from a local specialist - as you mentioned it has not much to do with B&O, but Windows XP.

Can someone please advise how to open the Beomaster 5?

It seems like it has special screws. Which screws do I need to undo?

Please help!

I put the SSD in last night and it booted up perfectly first time.

I selected NAS as music and played while it was gathering the rest of the music.

Today, when I press N.Music, it just keeps rebooting every time I press N.Music (it reboots perfect every time).

So I changed the music back to internal hard drive and everything is working perfect back to normal.

Now I'm wondering if it is because I don't have Twonky on my NAS?

I have a Seagate NAS and I don't think it can do Twonky?

Barry Santini:

Is there any company or person offering a service wherein a BM5 is sent in and it's drive copied and verified to operate properly with a 500mb SSD drive? And maybe offering installation of an updated anti-virus program, along with chrome or Mozilla?

B

Hi Barry

I can provide this service at a cost of your hard drive being shipped to me and back to you.

I will also purchase the SSD drive for you.

Please PM me.

I've done some digging and it seems the Crucial M550 range uses the same 'Marvel 88SS9189' controller chipset as the MX100 so I'm going to see if I can get the M550 1TB SSD drive to work in the BM5.,

I'll update the thread once I've received the drive and had a chance to test it.

Hi

Would it be possible for you or anyone else to download Scanner from Crucial website and run it on MB5?

Crucial told me that this is only way to know which drive will work with the system.

Thanks

This has already been done by another forum member, it's where the recommendation of using the Crucial MX100 drive came from as it was the only drive shown to be compatible by the tool.

Hi to all and thanks for the previous recommendations. I honestly think it is a shame that B&O offers no support on the SSD / upgrade issue, considering the price level of the BeoSound/Master 5.

My BeoMaster5 has a Western Digital 1.0 TB HDD. Unfortunately, the biggest size of the SSD Crucial MX100 is 512GB and therefore I cannot use this model as the clone drive should be the same size as the original HDD. I am now contemplating to try to clone to the SSD Crucial MX300 1.0TB, any opinions?

Thanks, Robert
