    Hey all, I just went to go rip some tracks to my X-Box off of a CD-R I made and the box won't read any of my CD-Rs. Is this a defective unit or is it just not capable of reading CD-Rs? thanks.

    Xbox doesn't support cd-r discs but it did read a few cd-rw discs that I tried.

    I hear it depends on the dvd drive that your box has.

    The drives are really touchy. It depends upon the media and the manufacturer of the drive. If you are a gamblin' man, you can tweak the drive. (It requires opening the Xbox, etc...) Do a Google search for "xbox dvd pot adjustment".

    only xbox's with the samsung dvd-drive will be able to read cd-r .. most should be able to read cdrw though, early xbox's with thomson drives are the suckiest. thomson < philips < samsung
