I believe the HDD in my BM5 has crashed.  It is the original.  I see much discussion about cloning the old HDD to create a new drive, but what if the old drive is broken so no longer clone-able?  I believe I have most of my music backed up (and, if not, I have the CDs), but can I just put in a new disk and run recovery and then copy in my music? 

Thanks,

Stan

400 euro's = the B&O price for replacing a 1TB harddrive

Yes that’s roughly what I have paid. Twice!

Well. After having cloned and installed an SSD disk instead of the standard disk, I am happy to have the old hard drive as a backup in case a crash should happen.

It turns out it was my system board (again) rather than my HDD.  On the one hand, I'm happy because I didn't have a recent backup of the HDD so it would have been some significant work to rebuild it.  On the other hand, I'm angry because this is the 2nd time this board has failed (1st time was under warranty) - one of the reasons I thought it was the HDD that failed.  Anyway, I just gave the service center the go ahead to fix it.  It is kind of painful, but I do enjoy it, and I don't really see anything in the market to replace it.  I was considering going with a Moment, but since that product is dead, and I'd need to buy a NAS to serve my music (when I first looked at the Moment, I was thinking I could use the BM5 as my NAS).  Oh well...

I'll probably take a shot at getting a SSD after I get it repaired (and backed up).

Hi Stan. Sorry to hear about our trouble.

But like you, I do also enjoy the BM5 as a music system, and my wife still prefer to take the remote and choose Radio and then the station number.

She still has not requested a system controlled from a phone. Yet.

Well. Guess we are still a bit old fashioned ;-)
