SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 48 Error code 801
We had this problem. I called Bose, and they reported that the 801 error is a hard drive problem. The unit started squealing while I was on the phone to support, and the guy heard it. Said the hard drive was failing.
$200 to ship the unit to Bose to replace the drive. Wish they had a secret warantee for what seems like a common problem.

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.

The problem exist because of the latest umusic software update disk. Since the release in January, some of these disks were corrupt. As a result, you get the error message 801 or 802 call bose. if you explain to the bose technical reps that the problem occurred right after you loaded the latest software release, they may consider swapping out the media center for free.
