The unit fails to play back recently burnt discs , other music systems will not play them either . The discs are of the printable type . I have tried blank discs from another pack , but still no good . The drive does work however with re-writable discs , both writing and reading . When I load a pre-recorded music cd, the drive sounds as if it is hunting back and forth across the disc for a start, but does not find one . I have tried un-installing and re-installing the driver , but it makes no difference . There does not appear to be an update for this driver . The drive is approx 8 years old , and the system was originally windiws 98se , but has been windows xp sp2 for about a year , with no drive problems until now . Is it time time replace the drive unit , and with what ?or is there something else to diagnose ? Look forward to your reply , cheers , Tony . PLEASE NOTE , I HAVE HAD TO PUT A DIFFERENT PRODUCT MODEL IN THE PRODUCT BOX TO GET THIS MESSAGE ACCEPTED , AS MY MODEL...SONYCD-RWCRX140E DOES NOT EXIST ON THE LIST .

The laser pickup unit [Optical Pickup Unit] is faulty. Bose uses a special type. You can't get it from open electronic spare part market. It is best to get this set repaired by the authorised service center for bose at your town.
The Bose Wave System was very expensive, and should be at least checked with someone that can give an honest assessment. It is possible the Laser Pickup Assembly may need a good cleaning, if it works you can enjoy more time with it. If it fails then it is a matter of choice.
This seems to be a failure of the micro controller of the unit as it fails to identify as well as display the functions.
You will need to check he connecting cord , check the connectors and the inner voltage to the circuits.
My first guess would be that the loading belt is slipping. This will prevent the cd from loading completely and thus won't read. The belt costs around $2-$3. Care must be taken when opening up this unit.
Is it just that disk or are all the discs not reading?? If it is just that disc try cleaning the disc with a lint free soft towel. Also is the disc a factory dvd or a burnt copy of media. Some dvd players will not play certain re-write discs some play DVD-R and some play DVD+R and some will play both ... good luck
is the Cd a burnt one cause if it is the player may sometimes not read the disc,could be some brands of burnt disc.If it isnt playing discs bought from a retailer theres probably something wrong with the units ability to read the disc and the unit or laser in it may need replacement
The unit can recognize that a disc has been loaded but can not read the contents. This can be as simple as a dirty lens or more drastic like failing optics. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to correct the problem and a music CD will play OK, then the optics are failing. DVDs require more laser power to read than a music CD.

GG My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player. The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader. They get dust on them and simply cannot read. The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.
