Question about Bose (321GS) System
I get a message saying "Format Unsupported" on all CD's and DVD's i play on my Bose 321 GS. They all used to play perfectly well until a week ago. These are all original CD's and doesnt have any scratches on it. So please dont give me a solution saying "Clean your CD's" - thats not the problem. Can you help?

You need to stand at the front of a Bose store and tell everyone about to enter your story, until the manager of the store agrees to give you a new one. This looks like an ongoing problem that Bose knows about and will not address. $900+ and maybe 60 hours dvd time and I'm on the same boat. I thought Bose could be a trusted company.

So funny mine just started doing the same exact thing. I put a DVD in and it says format unsupported. Then I turn it off take the disc out and try it again. Seems to always work the second time around

Format unsupported simply means the unit can not read the disc. The problem is either the disc or the player.
Contact Bose technical support if you are sure the discs are good. 800-367-4008

According to Bose, the message that you have is due to dust in the system ....
They have offered 3 ways :-

I know its frustrating, However, we cannot play more with Bose as it might void the warranty if any.

Everytime I want to play an audio cd, it says format unsupported. This is happening very often. And I have also cleaned the cds,but still there is no difference. What is the solution?
