Jeez, what luck I have with my newly modded Xbox. I'm part of the lucky elite with the Samsung Drive that will play virtually any CDR's. Only problem is copying ISO images on to them. Everyone that I've recently downloaded, either is corrupt, or, poorly copied.Does anybody know of a reputable source where I can download 100% workable ISO's from?
Any help would be Magic.
Cheers

does dvd+r games work on xbox? cause I found a really cheap dvd+rw burner and was thinking about buying it. However, if they dont work in xbox then I dont want it.

Yes you can biggrin.gif

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!!!!!


PEACE OUT!!!!!!

There is no list of games that will fit on CD-r(rw). There probably will never be any games that can fit themselves on a single CD. You can although, use multiple CD's to fit the cd onto. For example, if you want to transfer halo to about 3-4 cd's you can. Put the default.xbe in each cd. Then put the mulitplayer maps in maps on one cd. Then put some of the campaign maps in maps, on another cd. You should be left with a couple of maps and put those on a separate cd too. Don't bother with the bink file...all it is movies. Or you can get the bink movie editor thing and downsample the movies. This will work for many other games too, you just have to diagnose how you should do it.

Heh, one more thing I forgot. I forgot to mention that even if y ou have a thompson drive, you can upgrade the firmware, that might help, but do it at your own risk, because there are bad flashes and bad firmware upgrades.

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 are many a game that fit on a single cd, for instance Monopoly Party, The Sims, Smashing Drive.
