I also have a Nucleus+ with 2 TB SSD internal drive (formatted ok) and want to connect a USB CD drive to rip directly to the internal drive in Nucleus. I connected the drive, but nothing happened. Not sure what else I need to do. Help?
I am also unsure of what “setup” I need to do within Roon before I start.
I wonder whether you’ve been bitten by a known bug. Try disconnecting the drive, reboot the Nucleus and then reconnect the drive again. If the bug is cleared, then putting a CD in the drive will start the ripping process automatically. The bug may return after ripping a few CDs, in which case you’ll need to follow the steps above again.
For info, here’s info on the bug (which is being worked on):
It was the USB cable, ugh. When I replaced the cable between the Nucleus and the external drive, the ripping happeded automatically as it should and the ripping status showed up on the webbase UI.
So yes, ripping does happen automatically now and it works as I would want it to using FLAC format etc…
