Sounds like your firmware has been scrambled for some reason. The firmware is downloaded and then burned to a cd and placed in the drive and the unit will update when the power is cycled. The problem you face is obtaining the firmware code to use. I obtain firmware updates from Panasonic. But as a consumer, I'm not sure if panasonic will provide that to you. I would call Panasonic tech support, explain your problem and ask for a firmware update disk. Or, you could take the unit to a shop and ask for the firmware to be updated.

Chek your settings and make sure it is set to NTSC not PAL. Check the DVD to see if it is PAL format. Good Luck.

Unsupported format read cd dvd when it read if before?


Sometimes cleaning the disk will solve the problem. Also resetting the system by pulling the power cord and putting it back in can solve the problem. If this does not help, then sometimes updating the system with the latest software can help. Just call Bose and ask for an update disk. Last but not least if nothing works, send the unit to Bose for repair.

When a DVD-ram disc put on,it's either say cannot record or play because it's not formated(it's formated and have been recorded played for a long time)or say no disc.


it may be a unsupported format on your dvd player, you could try upgradeing the firmware on your dvd player/burner, or try another dvd drive.

What does unsupported format mean?when downloading/playing video from fromflashdrive in the deck this message appears,unsupported format.


Some dvd players only play .avi files, the cheap ones use a pc dvd drive and will play most files, get a movie encode, ( some are free ) and encode the film into the type your dvd plays, good site to see what dvd's play what files is video help . com

FREEZES UP AND STOPS.SCREEN SAYS CANNOT READ DISC OR UNSUPPORTED FORMAT


Check the disk for scratches, and attempt to play it on another DVD player or your computer, if it has a DVD drive installed. The drive will have DVD written on the front. If the disk isn't a commercial DVD but playable on the computer then the problem is a unsupported format. To make sure your DVD player is working correctly put a known good DVD the player to ensure it still works.
