Thanks inglisd! I was able to SSH into my BDP-3 and poke around.

The directory where the music on my internally-mounted SSD is /media/Music. Fortunately, this directory is readable and writable by all, so we are good to move/add/copy files in and out.

If you insert a flash drive on one of the external ports it will show up as "/media/Samsung-USB" or something similar based on the flash drive manufacturer. I ran a USB3 extension cable from one of the rear USB3 ports to get easy access to USB3. The two ports on the front of the BDP-3 are only USB2 and too slow to transfer files.

If a user has some experience with the linux command line, moving files on/off the flash drive to the internal SSD is easy.

I backed up all the files on the internal SSD to another drive via rsync in case the internal drive goes bad or the BDP-3 stops working. I'll post more on that later.

Remember to unmount the flash drive via the MM system interface. We can't mount/unmount anything without root account access, and we don't know that (yet).

Hi all,
Will replace my Bdp-1 with a Bdp-3, is there a way to copy my playlist from the 1 to the Bdp-3. Thanks

I have the BDP-1 and BDA-1 combo and was wondering if the BDP-1 can be used as a USB/SPDIF converter?  Maybe I am crazy but seems I read an article one time where someone was using it that way.  I ask because I want to to play Tidal via my PC rather than using the manic moose interface through the BDP-1.  I currently have my PC directly connected to the BDA's USB input, but of course this way it's limited to 44.1 and 48kHz data.  Is there a way to send the signal from the PC's USB to the BDP-1 and then to the BDA (by coax or AES) to utilize the resolution support up to 192k on the BDA-1?  Or will I just need to look into an a separate DAC/SPDIF converter?  Thanks!
