Bose 3 2 1 Playing DVD-Recordable disks

I have an original Bose 3-2-1 system. The system will not recognize any recordable DVD disks, only commercial ones. Is this a flaw with the original systems? Is there a workaround or any upgrade to fix this?

Thanks!

Sorry, but many of the older ones are not made to play the recordable disc's. There is no workaround for it or any upgrade. When DVD players first came out, it was rare to get one that played recordables because the recordable disc's were not being sold, or they were still new to the market and not yet popular enough for the manufacturers to consider them an essential feature. In fact, there are still some DVD players being manufactured today that will not play them, about 5% to 10% of new ones today.

Panasonic DVD recorder dmr-ez485v displays "cannot record" on TV screen and shows code C744 on the unit...is it broken? Was recording fine yesterday...will appreciate any advice


Depending on your location, some pay TV programs may not be recordable. First make sure you are recording a free program. If problem remains, disconnect the unit from the power (wall) outlet for a minute. Digital recorders are quirky - sometimes I have had to insert a disk 3 to 5 times before it is recognized by the recorder.

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.


DVD-RW
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.

DVD+RW

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.


There you are.

Sony DVD+R AccuCORE disc recorded on HP dv4-2045dx laptop notebook will not play on Bose 321 system Get disc incompatible message What can I do?


Sometimes dvd players will have problems playing certain types of recordable discs. You might need to switch from the Sony brand and try a different one. Also there are DVD+R and DVD-R types. The Bose might have issues trying to play a "+" type disc. Also make sure that the disc is being properly "finalized" by the burning software you are using so the Bose system will recognize the disc. The burning software I use is called Nero Burning Rom and it is very easy to use. It allows you to control the burning for various applications and can help with "problem discs". If you are able to play other burnable discs in the Bose and the Sony discs are the only one giving you the problems then it is probably just that brand and you will not be able to use them with your Bose. And just a note some older DVD burners can only burn "+" type discs or "-" type discs but not both. Your computer according to the specifications from HP should not have a problem burning both types as long as the drive is the original.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 35 Series II and want to know whether it's compatible with a DVD+RW. I'll burn it in a Toshiba recorder, finalize it and then play it on the Bose. Will it play?


Hi This what Bose say about formats

"The Lifestyle® 35 system plays DVD-video in interlaced format, as well as music on CD, CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (re-writable). The system also plays MP3 files on CD and AM/FM radio. "

So by the sound of this i suspec that you may struggle with DVD/RW. but my best advice is try it.

My DVD palyer will not play copied movies. They play for a while and then begin to act up.


Have you tried a different brand of recordable disk?
Some do not record as well as others.
Also......copied Dvds don't last as long as a factory recorded disk.
If the disks are older disks....that may be it.
Other factors are ....your laser may be weak or dusty in the DVD player.
Do your disks have paper labels?
BINGO!
The paper has a different expansion rate than the plastic disk and will almost always bend the disk in the heat of the player......interrupting the playing of the disk....... usually about half way through it.......pop the disk into the freezer for a few minutes....then return it to your player to finish your viewing.
Never use paper labels.
Never leave your DVD player on unless you are using it.
