Maybe the DVD player you got is not supporting all DVDs from around the globe. There is this thing called NTSC region 1 for Americas, region 2 for Europe, Region 3 for Asia, Region 0 for everything. I don't know the other regions but that must have been the problem.

My bose 321 is frequently refusing to play dvd's with an error message on screen which reads 'format unsupported'. These dvd's have been played on the same unit at sometime in the past. The unit is around...

thats technology for you !!!
Ok , your head unit need to be updated
Have a look at your brochure as it explains how to proceed with it .
It may have to be taken to bose for an update .
These models are sensitive and will demand looking after ( due to electricity fluctuation )

Bose System Bose 321 unsupported format with dvd's

You need to stand at the front of a Bose store and tell everyone about to enter your story, until the manager of the store agrees to give you a new one. This looks like an ongoing problem that Bose knows about and will not address. $900+ and maybe 60 hours dvd time and I'm on the same boat. I thought Bose could be a trusted company.

Format unsupported

Format unsupported simply means the unit can not read the disc. The problem is either the disc or the player.

Contact Bose technical support if you are sure the discs are good. 800-367-4008
