Can I Download My Music From the Bose Hard Drive?

With many people upgrading their older Bose systems, we are frequently asked “Can I download the stored music from my old Bose system”. This refers to the Bose Lifestyle 38 and 48 systems that had the ability to store music copied from a CD. Unfortunately the answer is no. Due to copyright laws, these systems were never designed with download ability. There is a work around that I don’t recommend. If you can find the necessary cables, the old Bose Music Center can be connected to your new console as a separate source. The reasons I don’t recommend this work around is first, this workaround is very cumbersome to use, involving music apps and remote controls to access the stored music. The 2nd reason is the abundance of music on streaming music services. With most music services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon music, you can access almost every song ever made. Once you become familiar with these services and that is very easy to do, I’m confident, you will never miss your old CD’s. Please visit our website at www.wbsouth.com
