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.

This may be a compatibility issue as Bose equipment is not generally compatible with non-Bose aftermarket products. The I/O interface voltages require different levels in Bose products. Without knowing your complete setup and the model numbers it is hard to say what may be going on with your set up. Sorry.

get an aftermarket deck. If you don't have the bose system, the OEM non bose does NOT play mp3 cds. It only plays audio cds or burned audio cds. It does have the aux jack if you hook up an mp3 player or your iphone/android phone to play Pandora using a headphone cable.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The 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

Bose lifestyle 48 says format unsupported for audio cds


Hi Johnxxlt,
According to Bose, the message that you have is due to dust in the system ....
They have offered 3 ways :-
Try cleaning the CD or DVD, as follows: 

  • Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to remove stains or fingerprints from the disc surface 

  • Wipe in straight movements from the center of the disc to the outside

  • Do not use any chemical cleaning products. They can damage the disc.
If the above will not fix the problem, you need to call them to repair the system.
I know its frustrating, However, we cannot play more with Bose as it might void the warranty if any.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Do rate the solution as "Fixya" if 100% satisfied.
