I have a Thomson and it reads Verbatim DVD+R wonderfully. I highly recommend them!!

Oh, and my Sony DVD+RW works great too.

For Thomson, don't use cheap brands....Memorex grr.gif

i have a Thompson drive, and it's been picky about the DVD+R. Not sure why. I've used DVD+R on all of my backups, and have no problems execpt for 1 or 2 games. They work in other Xbox's. So far mine had read DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD-R. Those are the only i've tried.

I haven't noticed any problems with any of the + media I have tried, including Fuji, Philips and Nashua +R and Nashua +RW.

in order to do what all of you are speaking about you have to completley rip out the old xbox hd, and put in a new one right?
