Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System
Lost all the stored music.
SOURCE: storing music in BOSE 38 system
The Bose uMusic system is a very powerful music management tool. The uMusic storage process involves pulling information from your CD (approximately 3-5 minutes per CD) then storing this information into a buffer area for processing. The buffer area will hold approximately 10 CDs worth of data. After the buffer is full, it must stop taking new data and process the data already in the buffer. The processing time is about 30 minutes per CD.
This means 5 - 6 hous of processing per 10 CDs. So be patient. This is not unusual. Other "media servers" such at Escient and Audio Request take 24 - 48 hours to process a full buffer. There is a lot of data processing going on during this time period and the result is amazing music management once completed.
I recommend clients load 10 CDs in the morning and let it process till after lunch. Then another 10 CDs and let it process until after dinner. Then another 10 CDs and let it process overnight. This routine completes 30 CDs per day.
If you have 100 to 400 CDs an automated services is available from HouseSys.com. This is the only automated service available for this system.

Unfortunately, an 802 error is bad. That means hard drive (HDD) failure. This can happen to any hard disc drive, and there's no way to predict it and no way to fix it from home.
If you even try to troubleshoot it (reset etc), you could loose more data (music you've already stored to the system). If you try to access 'stored' music- the error will continue. Also, every time you turn the system off, it checks your HDD, and will probably cause the 802 or 801 errors to display again.
The "Format Unsupported" message may be related, but usually temporary. The 802 (and also 801) errors mean irreversible HDD damage so it doesn't matter.
Call Bose tech support immediately.. They can repair it for $165 and give a new 1 year warranty. And if it's already under warranty they will repair for free. In either case they will replace your HDD with a new one, and transfer any salvaged music files from your existing drive to the new drive.

those are hard disk related errors..and probably will need a hard disk format action ...If you do not store any files on it is better cause the action will wipe out the hdd..
if after formatting it it will still make the same it is a physical issue and you will need to have it sent to be checked by professionals.
