Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.
your car stereo and computer are more than likely able to play the files but the bose cannot because the music files are burned in MP4 format I believe. I'm not sure if iTunes can be converted to MP3 so it will play in your bose.
Please check the format of the CD. It should be commensurate with the formats which can be played by the CD Player. This information is available within the booklet which has been provided with the changer. To give you an example I purchased Bose surround system in 1998. It can only play CD's which are recorded in wma format and will not play any mp3 CD. Some of the CD players do not play re-writable CDs. Please check.
To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs,
MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs,
make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs
The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability
is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was
recorded in and the actual disc used for recording. Note: iTunes
defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make
CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the
format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options
Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which
may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning
your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs
If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints
or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still
won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc
Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
hi try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd player with an original CD, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you
Mabye. I would suggest either opening the unit up and cleaning thr "laser" (optical pickup) with a q-tip. Or try using one of those cleaning cds that have the little cleaner fabric on the inderside...
if that doesent work something is most like wrong with the cd machanism wether its not spinning the cd or just not reading it due to a defective laser..
