I was googling for a way to get custom soundtracks without burning Cd's ( my Tomsons drive's doesn't read Cd's sad.gif) when I found this webpage.

Look at the lastest point :

QUOTE

7.Playing burned music discs
Burn music onto a CD-RW (not a CD-R) disc, and close the session when you burn the CD. Place it in your X-Box and rip away.
[/b]Note: This also works with .MP3 files. The Xbox can store .MP3s and replay them later and saves a lot of space when compared to the .WAV files that are standard on audio discs.[/b]

Actually the Xbox Linucx project has information about tip 6 i can't find the information right now but i'm sure it is their.

Anybody with a Samsung Drive and a spare CD-R willing to try tip7?

Great as far as i know the Xbox can't do that but i just want to be sure before i buy Cd-Rw's and.

Good to see you're going to test it for us biggrin.gif

Great it would be wonder full if more people would know that and it might even end the ''please add Mp3 support'' threads biggrin.gif.

I have to admit i really dind't know this feature was in the dash biggrin.gif

Anyway keep the conferment rolling people that way we can be sure it isn't just one one dash or in newer version

You probably have to test it yourself to find out.

Did you get a error or couldn't the Xbox read the Cd-Rom?

alot of people are getting confused, let me straighten this out for ya.

The xbox will NOT read .mp3 files of a CD-R/RW (or any media for that matter).
However, those saying they have jus done it, well you mean burnt .mp3 as a Audio CD, so that the xbox can understand them again. The xbox's default dashboard will NOT read mp3s on a CD/DVD.

If u wish to get your MP3s on the xbox's dashboard, you will need to burn them on a Disc in Audio Mode (example: In Nero, Select Audio CD, Not Data CD).

If you burn MP3s to disc in "Audio Mode", you are resampling them to WAV format!
