hi i posted this in the newbie section but this morning i realized it might be better answered here. I have a bunch of movie files burnt on to CD-R's in data disk format. My xbox DOES read CD-R. when i put the disk into the xbox and go to XBMC it says the tray is empty. i know my xbox reads CD-R (this particular brand) because i have put a came on it and ran it and i have ripped CD's i made in this brand.

if anyone can help me get XBMC to let me watch my AVI's i would be much appreciative

Weird, I am quite sure the Xbox cannot read CD-R.

Anyways, if you burn the avis to a cd-rw or a dvd-r , there should be no problem.

Cant help with cd-r though :-/

well it should be able to i have never had problems- are the discs finalised (e.g. non multisession)

there is the following line in the the xboxmediacenter.xml that you could try experimenting with

QUOTE

<!--
ISO/UDF DETERMINATION
This tells XBMC how to treat DVD or CD that was burned as a UDF/ISO hybrid disc. Enabling it ("yes"),
means it will attempt to read the disc as a ISO9660. Disabling it ("no") will cause lead XBMC to try
and read the disc as UDF format
-->
<detectAsIso>no</detectAsIso>


is this a standard xbox drive or a replacement pc dvd-rom drive?

if so you need to enable this in the .xml file too (no to yes),

<usePCDVDROM>yes</usePCDVDROM>
