I have my bdp3 installed with an internal 2TB SSD and WiFi dongle, how do I add or remove music file from SSD remotely? Thanks
I only have a BDP-2, and it is on hard-wired ethernet, but this is my guess as to what you need to do.
Can you access the manic-moose interface via http://bryston-bdp-3/
? If so, then your wifi is working.
Is your hard-drive formatted? If not, then use Manic Moose to format it via the "Erase" function, and choosing the drive (the interface could be a bit better). You choose a partition name, and do the erase (really a format). I choose FAT format (I don't know what the EXT format is, or if it is better). After a minute it should show the partition. Then click on Mount (make sure this doesn't unmount. the same button toggles between the two states).
That procedure is only for a new drive. It won't work on an already partitioned drive (which you can just mount).
One you have the drive mounted, you can add music to it by connecting from a PC as a Network drive.
connect to \\BRYSTON-BDP-3 via the Windows 10 search pane. It may also show up as a Network drive in Explorer (but I find that Explorer doesn't always poll what is recently on the network).
If you can't get there, you may have to go into go into "Turn Windows Features On/Off", and enable Samba 1 client capability on the Windows machine. I'm not sure if Manic Moose has upgraded the Samba version, but in 2018 I lost Bryston connectivity when Windows turned off the old Samba 1 for security reasons.
Once you have the drive up in Explorer, you can copy to it just like a normal Windows drive.
That's about the extent of my knowledge, and hopefully someone else or one of the Bryston people can help you if any step doesn't work.
