Does an original Xbox v1.0 as to have a thompson DVD drive?
And what media works best with that DVD drive?
( I'll mod my xbox with an xcuter 2.3B lite, I don't if it's important to mention)

The way I understand is that all 1.0's are thompsens. On my 1.0, I used TDK 2x DVD-R and Fujifilm 2x DVD-RW. These are all I have tried and work very well, sometimes don't load on first read, but if I eject and load, always work on second chance.

All Thompsons are different. Mine for instance, only reads the cheapest media (no-brand). My friend's on the other hand, won't read the cheap CD's and has trouble reading high-quality (Memorex) CD-R's. DVD-R (also no-name) work great on my Xbox (not sure about his yet). You gotta try all different kinds to see what works best for your Xbox.
