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.
