I have a v1.1 box with x2.1 lite installed. My samsung DVD will boot to any CDR but not Ricoh DVD+R which plays fine on my mates v1.0 box.

Any ideas why? do i have to set anything up in EvoX to play backups? This is the first time i have tried to back up one of my games.

That's right.. Samsung xDVD-ROMs won't read DVD+.

Well, most of them don't, it's like getting a philips drive to read CD-Rs.. Pure luck.

Conmods. Do you have your XbOx hooked to your soundsystem? Thats what I'm planning to do, Because I want to be able to put all my music on it. tongue.gif
