Hi.. I normally burn my xvid/divx and rmvb videos onto DVD-r and play using XBMC. I have burned over 100 dvds in the past and they all work fine. I used Datawrite Titanium Silver 8x DVD-r.

last night I found out that the last 25 dics I burned did not work. I restarted my xbox and I get the same problem, the xbox tried to read (busy) then says (empty). I tried an old dvd which I burned and it worked perfectly.

I have been using the same DVD-R. The only change I made was updating the firmware becaue previously I was burning at 4x. The is the only change I made.. I have made no other changes. I am using nero6. I then tried to burn at slower speeds and get the same problem.

I cant figure out what caused this. Can anyone suggest anything? anything please? I am already pissed that I have to burn the 25 discs again, but still need to solve this problem.

Dump Nero and burn with DVD Decrypter.. See if that helps your problem. And remember, burn at the lowest speed possible.

How would I burn as an iso formatt? I normally select the iso dvd in nero and drag the movies which I want over.

Are there anyother burners which you could recommend?

There's a chance that the laser in your DVD-burner could just be weak. Try picking up a stronger media. Memorex and Verbatim make some of the top DVD burnable media, or so I'm told.

If you can't stick those movies on your hdd and you don't want to worry about dvd media limitations get the samsung pc drive and mod it, it'll play anything. I believe it's 616t but i'm not sure that could be the stock samsung.

So after the firmware update you started making discs at a higher speed correct?

Slow down the burning speed (I always burn discs for the Xbox at 2X myself) and see if that improves the reliability.

Nero is fine (in my opinion anyway) for what your using it for.

I tend to watch my divx/xvid movies directly from a share on my PC.

I am using dvd blank media which definitely works

I burn at 2x or 4x

I have updated firmware. Then tried downgrading fireware.

I use nero and compared with a friends settings that work.

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

Since I have two of the same brand/make dvd-r, one working with XBMC the other not. Are there any programs out there that can analyse the structure of the two so that I can compare them to see how they were burned differently?
