"Unknown Format" on Bose 321

Postby pbasch » Sat Nov 26, 2011 8:00 pm

I burn a DVD with ConvertXtoDVD version 2 or 3, and I also burn the same material with Nero Vision 10. The ConvertXtoDVD disc is rejected by my Bose 321 player, but the Nero Vision disc works fine. This is repeatable.

These are DVD-R discs.

Problem is, I much prefer ConvertXtoDVD, because it incorporates the SRT subtitle streams, while Nero Vision does not. Also I prefer the interface, which is simpler.

Any idea why this would be the case? ConvertXtoDVD used to work perfectly on my cheap Toshiba DVD player.

Many possible causes for this, impossible to say without conversion log.

Actually, the Bose readout is "!Format Unsupported"... no idea what that means, it was a perfectly ordinary DVD-R, according to Nero InfoTool. The manufacturer is "MBI 01RG40".
Furthermore, the disc plays well with Windows Media Player (though I can't see the subtitles), but VLC rejects it, saying "your input can't be opened".
I hope someone has a brilliant suggestion!

Re: "Unknown Format" on Bose 321

Conversion looks ok, your system might have problems burning because of PIO mode. (more with google - best to fix it)

But you can play that DVD in computer? Other than one you burned it with?
VLC should be able to play DVD just fine, if it does not work on same computer where WMP plays it then your burn is most likely bad.
Open video_ts/video_ts.ifo with VLC to play it.

Just to be sure, try with other computers and DVD players. If none of them (or only some) can play that DVD, then DVD is bad.

One more thing; you don't have last version of v2, check top of this forum.

Re: "Unknown Format" on Bose 321

Postby pbasch » Sat Dec 10, 2011 12:59 am

Hmmmm... I just was on the phone with Bose, and I suspect that the problem is that the Bose 321 will only play DVDs that are coded as "Region 1". ConvertXtoDVD encodes DVDs as region-free, or "Region 0". The Bose spits them back out at me. It is, apparently, a legal thing.

I have looked through this forum, and whenever a user wants to know how to make a DVD Region 1, the answer is always how to make it NTSC, which is not really relevant.

Can someone at VSO give a simple answer to this question: Are all DVDs burned with ConvertXtoDVD automatically region-free, or can they be encoded SPECIFICALLY as Region 1, in addition to being NTSC?

Thanks.

PS: perhaps someone knows of a hack to render a Bose 321 "region blind"?...

Well, that player is set to refuse region 0.
Try these:
