  1. I don't use backup software to backup my music folders and files, I have batch files that I use to copy everything to two other computers across my network, as well as three different external drives, one of which I use on my Oppo player. The external drives are always offline (read off and unplugged) when not backing up and one is kept in a fire safe. I use Macrium Reflect to backup my primary drives, and I worry more about those than the secondary music drives (since I already have 6 copies). Macrium makes images, much like Norton Ghost did. If the primary dies (or if I want to put a newer/faster drive in), I plug in the rescue media, boot up, restore the image from the secondary drive, and restart the computer. I just couldn't justify the cost of a NAS.
  2. Generally, most routers won't change the IP address once it gets set as long as the device gets used fairly frequently. My 18 devices, once set, have never changed. You shouldn't have to go to each device to set that either, it can generally be done in the router setup.
  3. I keep a wired connection to my Oppo, but my laptop where the master DB is located is wireless. I just plug in the flash drive Turn on the Oppo Insert a disc after the door opens and then close it Load SACD (the IP is already set) Rip away... Completely painless. Thanks to everyone here for all their help.
  4. I haven't turned on the Oppo for a while, and that disk just happened to be in there. I didn't really think too much about it simply because I almost NEVER listen to a CD on the Oppo, all of my CD's are already ripped, so in the back of my mind I was thinking SACD. It never even occurred to me until BS&T started working. I retired last November after 30 years in technology and years as a network systems engineer. This is one of those days where I overthought everything and just assumed it was a configuration/setup problem, and I know better. I appreciate you taking your time to help me out, sorry I wasted it! 🙂
  5. Uhmmm... yes. I feel REALLY stupid now. It is a CD. I have a different Carpenters that is SACD. I profusely apologize. I had actually ripped the CD before, and I guess I was thinking I needed to go back and get the SACD part, not think that it was only a CD. Again... thanks to everyone for the help, but you just can't fix stupid. 🙂 Have a great day! 🙂
  6. Ha! Discovered something. I swapped SACD's. The SACD that didn't work is: Carpenters - with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra I stuck this SACD in: Blood, Sweat & Tears - Original Master Recording The Carpenter SACD is brand new... I wonder if there isn't something about it that prevents this type of copying? Right now, BS&T is ripping without issue.
  7. I just ran the SACDExtractGUI. Ping was fine and the port was accessible. But when I try to run, I get the same error as tyhe other program. Also tried a new flash drive to no avail
  8. Yes, all of the "auto" settings are off. Let me did up another flash drive and start over. The usb drive I'm currently using was just formatted this morning, but who knows, I've seen stranger things. I'll let you know how it goes. 🙂 Thanks for your help so far.
  9. The sizes are correct now. Still no luck. The tray opens, I close it, go to iso2dsd and get the same error message. Those 1k files are 141 bytes
  10. Sorry, yes, there is a folder at the root called AutoScript that contains those files
  11. Thanks for responding... I still think it's something to do with these, just not sure what. 🙂
  12. Good morning! Just found this thread this morning and trying on my Oppo BD-103. It's been a struggle. First it is firmware BDP10x-83-1226 Second. It's been working great with an external drive attached through the front USB port, and it works great using MC25 as a server. My first struggle was getting the door to open but that is now working. I can't get ISO2DSD to connect though. I can ping the Oppo on the network, and in my router I've done the port mapping to allow 2002 to go to which is the Oppo address. When I try to connect, I get what you see in this attachment. I thought at first that one of my three instances of MC25 on my network may be trying to connect and hold something open, so I turned "My Network" off on the Oppo with no luck. So I'm at a loss. I've rechecked the files (and getting these correct is probably my problem) but I've read multiple explanations of the file names and extensions/contents, so at this point I'm not really sure if what I have is completely correct or not. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
