To answer your second question first, it depends on the Xbox. Mine, for example, hasn't worked with any RW DVD media, but I have no problems with R DVD or CD-RW.

As for what media works with the 500A, the only one I haven't gotten working so far has been Memorex DVD-RW. I've been through so many brands/types that I'm not favoring any particular one at this point, but I did try some cheapo PrimeDisc and Optodisc RW media successfully.

My suggestion would be for you to buy/order a bunch of single packs and find out what actually works in your Xbox.
