Question about Sharper Image MC502 System

2 Answers

Unknown Disc Format

When I load either a DVD or a CD, the system will try to load but then after about 2 minutes the message "Unkown Disc Format" appears on the TV screen. This even occurs when I put in a cleaning disc. The other features of the system work fine (ie the tuner). I haven't used the system in about 5 months but it has remained plugged in and set up during that time. Prior to now I have never had the problem. Thanks for the Help.

Depending upon how old your system is you might want to look into cleaning the laser reader..... I'm no expert so it's just a thought

This could be due to too much dirt on the lens of the player. Or it some cases damage inside the unit so the lens won't move, or damage to the lens itself.
You're best option is to remove the top cover to see the state of the workings. Then to spray the lens with Servisol Video 40 to clean it.
If that doesn't work it could be the lens is scratched.

Shows unkown disc when i put in a burned dvd-r but it will play a store boughten disc what disc format is compadible with yhis unit

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?

You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

It says..please insert a playstaion or playstation 2 disc format.

It's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Not an Audio CD/Format Unsupported

Clean the CD and try again. Also, if DVD displays "not supported", call Bose and ask to recieve an update disc. These updates are released every 6 months. Document your remote control settings before loading the update as they may be erased by the update and will require re-entering settings after the update.

Dvd is stuck

Ok what you can do (with power off and unplugged) is open the unit up, find the load and unload motor on the DVD carriage and manually turn it this will unload the disk.
