Question about Bose 3·2·1 II System
My Bose 321 II system failed to play any CD/DVD/VCD. It just shows "READING..." for a long time and "FORMAT UNSUPPORTED", but these discs used to work on the set. I can hear the player spinning but that's all. Feel it taking it apart to check it out.
My suggestion is to buy a different brand. I have two Bose systems and have repeatedly experienced problems with it. Considering that the Bose brand is marketed as a sophisticated system at a sophisticated price it shows a very poor performance. I am extremely frustrated as I thought that such an expensive product would give me top results.

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.
Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.
Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.
