  • Beomaster 5 Hd upgrade to Samsung EVO SSD

    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

    I have tried many different cloning software, the best result from EaseUS - the drive worked for few days. The problem must be in the drive Samsung 256G or 1TB for sure will fail, even doing restore. Reading in the forums, some say that only Crucial MX100 500G works with B&O BM5 - I do not have one and do not want to spend few hundreds to try. My problem is that my BM5 gets sluggish after while, this can be fix by going to Windows and defragmenting the files, but is troublesome. Regards

    You will have no problem to clone present drive to 3.5 inch drive. I have done it to Seagate, WD drives even not the same capacity like 1Tb to 500Gb - no issues. Cloning to SSD is a problem. In all cases I have used free cloning software, no need to buy DelayCon device. WD, Seagate, Hitachi use own "Acronis modified" cloning software, you can download from their websites and clone your present drive. I had the best results with EaseUS (also free software) as it offers sector by sector cloning

    Hi if you want to try 1GB Crucial I would suggest you invest some time and run their "Tool" on your BM5 and see drive recommendation. Maybe they have updated compatibility list? If it does not work you can always go after them and ask for help. Of course if you have another use for 1TB in case it fails, why not! Fully agree, it is shame that B&O does not want to help many users with an official upgrade path. Let us know the result

  • Re: Beomaster5 replace hdd

    Hi If you want to copy/clone current Beomaster 5 drive, the only problems you will have is new SSD drive itself. Samsung SSD and others will not work - period. You have to get Crucial MX300 - 500 or 1Tb drive and just clone old drive to new, cloning 500GB to 1 TB will be no issue. You do not need any cloning devices etc. Put your old BM5 drive in enclose or your computer and clone to a new drive. If you do not know how to do this take to any computer shops and they will do it. Trust me it is simple

    Hi Good luck with your project. What I know only crucial MX100 drive worked for few, so please let me know the outcome. The tool is available (or should be) through B&O distributors but I had no luck to put my hands on one .. Best regards

    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
