Hello, Sorry you're having problems.

Which Bose "Lifestyle" system do you have here, and roughly how old is it?

Also, what do you mean by it's "not storing CDs"?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Lifestyle 38 about 8 years old

Also, what do you mean by it's "not storing CDs"?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
You put the cd in and it says reading and then says not audio cd and does not store in the hard drive.
Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

Okay, I understand. When did it start doing this, and does it do it with ALL CD's?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Just today. Same with all CDs I tried.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Haven't stored anything in a while.
Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

Okay, please first try unplugging the Bose from power for 5 minutes, then plugging it back in and see if you have the same problem. Let me know.

Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

Are you still having the same problem? If so does the Bose even read the discs and play them back?

Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

If you need further assistance let me know. Before you go, PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top your screen. That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Cd
Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

What I'm asking is this: Does the Bose system PLAY the discs and output sound? In other words is it just the storing them that is the issue, or does it not even play them?

Expert:  Aric replied 7 months ago.

Are you still with me here?
