Download latest nero burning software. choose udf/iso en there is a special xbox button "force DVD-Video compatibility mode (required for xbox TM)" then burn a game or divx file en play you DVD or CDR.

|No,almost none of the Xbox consoles will read a backup on a cd-r,all backups must be burned to a cdr-w or dvd-r or dvd-rw,also some dvd+r media works as well. Games can be burned to a cd-r,but must be recopied to one of the above media types in order to play.|
ok..at the time of my original post, we was on the 1st generation of xbox.... and almost none of them would read cd-r's.... now they are shipping with different brand dvd drives,and people are having great success with cd-r's.... this is wonderful..... so everyone should atleast play around with a couple different brands of cd-r and hope that it works.... chances are if you have a newly purchased xbox,you will be OK!!!!!

Just to throw a wrench in the works, I "settled" for a Phillips 1.0 system and found it to work fine any any CD-R media that wasn't blue.
I helped a friend mod his 1.1 Samsung and it wouldn't read hardly anything (including DVD-r's, and rw's).
(Oh, and yes, I only burn at 2x ... although the phillips still reads at a 6x burn)

|If you have a phillips drive and you wanna get it to read any CD-R, just tweak the pot a bit. It was easier for me to remove the top of my phillips drive and turn the pot 1/4 of the way (and it reads everything I throw at it) than tearing up a PC-DvD-Rom, and cutting up my case to make it fit, etc. And I pot tweaked several phillips drives and they are still going strong.|
To those wondering if they should tweak their pot: if you are at all familiar with tweaking PS2 drives, you should know that the Xbox drives are constructed with much higher-quality components. As long as you take caution in tweaking the potentiometer, you're far less likely to damage the drive than you would be with a PS2 drive.

|There probably will never be any games that can fit themselves on a single CD.|
There are many a game that fit on a single cd, for instance Monopoly Party, The Sims, Smashing Drive.
|OK i have put in CD-R media on my xbox and it plays sweet but if i can run CD-R music cds can i run CD-R data? and if so what kind of data? only stuff that is compatible with the Xbox?|
Why would it play something that is not compatible with the Xbox?! lol
