Backup of music from a Philips WADM

Does anybody know if music can be transferred from a Philips Streamium Wireless Music Centre WAC7500 to a PC for backup other than via a compressed Philips propriety format?

We have a customer who has been using a Philips Streamium Wireless Music Centre WAC7500 device and loading CD's into it to store the music on it's internal hard drive. 6 years down the line and with 4000 + tracks on it they are moving to a BOSE system. The Philips software will only backup all the music in a compressed file. Windows Media Player sees/streams the music but I cannot see a way to extract the music for transfer onto the new device.

This is the device in question:

Any help is appreciated.

It might be worth opening the device an placing the hard disk in a PC.

I doubt that you will see MP3s, but you might find *.ts files which can be converted
or some other file type that can be imported into the Bose system.

Thanks very much.

I feared that may be the only option. Will open it up and see what we can see and let you know how we get on.

Thanks very much, we didn't end up being able to get the data from the device but are accepting this as a solution as we are confident it would of done what we needed to do had the customer required us to proceed.
