Question about Bose Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Bose 3-2-1 and when we play any type of DVD movie it seems to freeze in the middle of the movie. I also try and play CD'S and it won't read the disc. I bought a CD cleaner and thought maybe the player was dirty but that did not seem to help either.

Try it on another unit, yours or a friends. Problem most likely if on all DVD's etc is unit. The most common reason for this is optical unit in DVD etc goes bad.

If the DVD's play well on someone else unit, the unit you are using is the problem.

The optical unit in these units is not worth replacing--cost of entire unit is less than repair will be.

If you have more information let me know--I am here to help.

I have just purchased an HP Desktop computer and when I burn a Cd for music, everyting seems to work ok but when I try to play that CD on another player in my home, it won't play. Is there a setting...


Check the type of the blank CD/DVD you are using. Certain players won't be able to play CD-RW for instance.

If that doesn't solve the problem you might try to slow down your burn speed for a better quality CD/DVD. Sometimes a faster burn speed will lower the quality and other devices can have trouble reading these.

I have a Bose 321, 5 years old. It has started dropping the dialogue track on DVDs but the music track still plays. It is tempremental about the DVDs it plays, often reads bad disk or the DVD freezes. ...


BOSE offered a software upgrade to address the issue of freezing and not playing certain disks. You can get that right from BOSE by calling tech support. I am not sure that that will help with the newest symptom though (the humming).

Freezes in the middle of playing a dvd


1. You say in the (middle?) That in itself is subjective, Does it stop at an 'exact' specific point after playing for x number of minutes? Is it the same point for any DVD being played, or does it stop at a random point? - Does it stop when playing DVD--R or +R or what type of Disc? - more details helps to find a solution.
Also it is never necessary to use cleaning discs - Do that and it will wreck your player - and may never read a disc again. Using cleaning discs could have caused your problem. Use cleaning discs only for practicing how far you can throw them.

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
