Re: dvd player always says "no disc " when i play...
First try running a CD/DVD player cleaner disc thru the unit, you can find them at Walmart, Target, etc. Get one that uses fluid. If your lucky, it's just dusty and needed cleaned. If it's still inoperative, you need to send it to Bose for service. They will swap out the transport for a new one and you will get many more years of service out of it. Just occasionally clean it. The repair will probably run 100-150. You can call Bose support for average pricing for transport repair and they should give you at least a ball park estimate. Hope this helps

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.
Unfortunatley no, its not software that reads dual layer discs, its hardware. I sold Bose for 2 years and do not know of any Bose items that will read dual-alyer discs. Dr. Bose has a hard time keeping up with technology sometimes. Other than that, the 321 is a great system!
The first thing to try would be to clean the unit. If you don't have a DVD player cleaner you can get them at Walmart, Target, or any electronics store. Get one that uses fluid. run it thru a couple times and hopefully all will be well. If not, you need to send it out for service. They will just replace the transport. Generally at a cost of 100 to 150 and two weeks or so for turn around time. Hope this helps
i have begun having a problem with my
4-5 year old bose 321 system. sometimes
dvd's burned on my computer will not play
on my bose 321 system. sometimes they
will. what's up with this? it's not a bad media
problem. i've narrowed it to the player. sometimes
i'll play a computer burned dvd on the bose and
it will play fine. next time i try to play it it won't
thank you in advance
if will not read a laser lens cleaning disc , then it will need to be opened up and the laser lens will need to be cleaned manually with the cleaning solution and a cotton tip , but do it easy and dry the lens with the cotton tip
if that don't do it then the laser mechanism will need replacing
I had the same problem listed; send an email to BOSE tech support - they sent me a DVD with a bios upgrade and it fixed the problem. They should put the BIOS upgrade on their website so you could burn your own DVD rather than waiting for the mail. But it did fix the problem. Netflix disks were the worst; they must do something when they burn them to get that forced Ad to play that Bose doesn't like.
I love my Bose 321 DVD system, but a few days ago, it started acting weird. I put in a DVD, and it reads - "No Disc".....and I'm not sure why. I cleaned the disc, and I also played a DVD/CD Maintenance kit - I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems like I have a problem within the system - what can I do?
