If you use the xbox file explorer and go to the d drive with the dvd inserted, what do you see?

1. It gives you an error that it can't read the disk
2. It shows you one big file xxxx.iso
3. It shows several files and folders, one being default.xbe
4. Something else....

If you explore the disk on your pc, what do you see then?

regards.

xbox dvd drives can be real picky about what medium they will read. Because of that, I hardly ever use the xbox dvd drive. I transfer all my game content to the 250 Gb xbox harddisk with an ftp client.
I never have dirty disk or load problems working that way.
Xman954 has once made a small tool that can map an iso like it is a real disk in a drive.
Using that, you can keep every game as one file on the disk.

It's hard to tell what media wil work and how you need to burn it.
It depends upon the brand of dvd rom in your xbox.
Sometimes, one brand of disks work, and another doesn't, even if they are burned the same way.

Have you tested with original xbox game disks? You can even test with a music cd(M$dash) or a movie dvd (xbmc).
If your dvd rom laser is on it's way out, it might have trouble reading those as well.

regards.

An X-Box bootable disc should not be readable in your PC (even if the PC burned the disc in the first place). If the PC shows the contents of your ISO on the disc, then you created the wrong type of ISO - use Qwix to make it. If the PC shows the actual ISO file on the disc, then you've created a data disc (instead of telling your burning program to write an image).

That said, no matter whether the image is of the right type or if you burnt is correctly, the console should be able to read something off each disc - the fact that it doesn't suggests the drive laser can't handle your choice of disc. Try different types of media and/or lower your burn speed. As a general rule, DVD-R seems to work best in the majority of consoles, but that may not be true for yours.
