Correct..as an external pc drive, I rip lossless wav in win media player ripping with the bot. The mm interface is too slow...many mistakes...it. copies a few tracks then spits out the disc. You're right as a cool add on piece to play cd's and use from mm...but trying to rip 500 cds as this unit is intended...I would be in a padded cell and the bdp/bda/bot would be in the blue recycling bin at the end of my driveway smashed to pieces...
Just my 2 cents

Chris

Are there any operating notes to go with (what I understand  to be) the memory play options from the prev and next buttons on front panel?

I have resumed using my BDP2 with an Plextor BD drive, the basic play and ripping options seem much improved now and I can also get  the memory play functions working too, but the latter only works for the first disc after startup, hangs on the second or subsequent attempts.  I'm also that mystified why the folders that memory play adds to the media player seem to persist even after rebooting BDP.

Thanks

No reply?....

he ho Waldhüter ihr!
it looks like the (fake) BOT is getting better at it, it finally found my favorite Parsifal 





although they we're related, and Covert is getting close, it still isn't there yet ;=)


 


All in all, enough to toy for the weekend,
Cheerio,

Hi folks

The latest beta software that Chris has been working on has an option that can rip the CD in about 1/2 the time (5 minutes) of the previous software by disabling the verification process

Great news for those with a BOT.  :thumb:

Hi,
My BOT-1 won't eject the disc.  I can hear the normal sounds it makes when it is ejecting, but the disc is not coming out.  What to do?  Thanks.

I had done that.  The BOT seems to be trying to eject but it seems like the CD is stuck.  I've been using it a lot lately with no issues and there was nothing odd about how the CD went in.  Any thoughts?

Hi Jay

No sorry I do not - it sounds like it jammed.  I would assume you have to unplug it and remove the top.  Please email Mike - mpickett@bryston.com -  and ask him to give you exact instructions.

Try playing a track, just for a few seconds and then ejecting it.  Which version of the firmware is installed and what's the bot's serial number?

It is using the latest version of firmware and is serial number 000102.

I removed the cover and saw that the optical drive is a sealed unit so I didn't attempt any disassembly.  I very gently poked a slim screw driver into the disc slot and tried to feel for a disc.  I was poking so lightly that I really couldn't tell if I made any progress.  I reattached the power cord and cable to the BDP-2 and the disc ejected.  It's been working fine since.  Still not sure what happened but it was clearly stuck as it was making the usual eject noises all along but just wasn't ejecting.

Thanks for your support.  You Bryston guys are fabulous in the way you support your customers!
