Bose 321 won't play CD and VCD but plays DVD

My Bose 321 GS won't play CD and VCD (which it used to play), now it just plays DVD. Could it be a corrupted firmware problem? anyone knows where i can download a copy of the firmware?

I dont know if you can get firmware for the system, but I had a friend with the same system that would only play dvd's and I replaced the dvd drive to get it working again. That might work for you because your laser could be failing or dirty.

Won't play DVD , it plays VCD, CD , AM , FM


All DVD players use a twin laser pickup. One wavelength is for CD/VCD and the other is for DVD.The one that is used more often tends to fail first. Typical life span is about 750 to 1000 hours. If you have crossed this limit the Bose must be due for a replacement. Even if you have not crossed this limit the laser could have failed . They are unpredictable at times.

Problem with my Bose 321


I had the same problem listed; send an email to BOSE tech support - they sent me a DVD with a bios upgrade and it fixed the problem. They should put the BIOS upgrade on their website so you could burn your own DVD rather than waiting for the mail. But it did fix the problem. Netflix disks were the worst; they must do something when they burn them to get that forced Ad to play that Bose doesn't like.
