Here is what i do,

Grab ya self Nero Burn, you can get a trial version Here

Open Nero -->Audio CD -->Nero Express
Drag your mp3(s) you want to make a cd from and drop it/them into the Nero Express window.
Burn to a CD-R

You should now be able to play using XBMC or MS DASH.

I don't know how this plays out, but I can view images, divx, and avi in xbmp with a regular CD-R, my friend who has a soft-mod can also. I even burned the CD-R's at 16X. Don't know if it's a "special" Xbox or what, but it's a v1.3...who knows?

Ive burned ALL my audio cds and divx etc movies on to a cheapie brand cd at 48x and have no probs. I have a sammy drive as well biggrin.gif

good news for every one with the "crappy Thompson drives"
they can be slightly moddified to cd-r and most formats. it takes someone with a bit of knowledge of electronics and an ohm meter a couple of hours to make it read other media including cd-r's. if anyone is interested pm me and i will try to find the tutorial. this method will however void your warranty, and dont blame me if you hurt yourself...lmao

Yeah, that's the pot tweak tutorial. It's on http://tutorials.xbox-scene.com under hardware modifications.

i thought the pot-tweaking was only to make the drive better at reading formats that may work on occasion, not formats that it can't read at all? from what i gather Thompsons can't read CDRs. I'm a wrong about that? Cuz that's why I swapped it out for the 616T (now I can't read DVD+r).

I was going to start a new topic, but this one is close enough. My main question is the same one that xboxboy is asking. I thought Thompsons were incapable of reading cd-r's and that pot tweaking is to get rid of read problems for media that they can read. Does anybody know for sure if the Thompson can read cd-r's after being tweaked? Is it unable to read them do to a restriction set forth in the firmware, or is it a hardware issue? I'm assuming that pot tweaking increases the power of the laser, but I could be wrong. I tweaked my Thompson, and it is now able to read DVD+-R's and CD-RW's that it had problems reading before. However, it is still unable to read CD-R's. I have only tried CD-R's that I have burned already, which is the only reason I care if it read's CD-R's. I burned pretty much all of the CD-R's I tried at 52X.

SUBLOGIC: What kind of drive is in your XBOX? Are you suggesting that CD-R media will work on any brand drive as long as it is burned at a low speed?

Actually my xbox can read my backup cdr's just fine. The trick is this, make sure you burn your cd and make it a finalized session or CD with roxio or other cd burning programs. Also Put in a game first then take it out and put in the cd and go into the audio cd option. Then you can place your songs on your box.

I do not know what the heck people are spewing here but guess what Sammy's read it all i have 2 and they read CD-r, CD-RW, Originals, DVD-R, DVD-RW. DVD+R, DVD+RW. it reads everything for me. Maybe you all are writing stuff to them in the wrong way i suggest you use HSDEMONZ guide to burning Media that way you get it done correctly.

It's easier and cheaper to try a couple different brands of cd-rws than it is to replace the Xbox DVD-ROM. However, if you can't get it to read any CD media, swapping Xbox DVD-ROMs is as easy as unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one.

If that doesn't work, try this:
1. Take out the Xbox DVD-ROM.
2. Put in a PC DVD-ROM. Plug in the IDE cable, but you'll need a molex Y-splitter to splice power from the hard drive for the PC DVD-ROM. Ignore the yellow cable that plugs into the Xbox DVD-ROM.
3. Power on, flash your BIOS, do whatever you need to. The PC DVD-ROM will read anything that it reads normally, but it will not read original Xbox game discs.
Here's the full tutorial with pictures:
http://www.xbox-scen...es/swap-dvd.php
Read over this one too, it's almost the same thing without pictures:
http://www.xbox-scen...es/dvddrive.php

Then when you're done flashing your BIOS and doing what you need to do with CD-rws, simply reverse the whole thing, and stick the Xbox DVD-ROM back in for reading originals.

people i need help!!!!! im new 2 this stuff so bare with me i have just got my xbox modded with the chip called x b.i.t.

i do not have any back-up games or anything like that to experiment with it but i do have a cd-r with music on it that i burnt withy windows media player 9 most likely to have been burnt at full speed.

of course the cd does not work on the xbox im certain that my dvd-drive is a crap tompson because it was bought last year with the halo and mm3 bundle!

but 2 tell u the truth and no really bothered about cd-r music but what i am really bothered about is that im not sure that ill be ablt to play back-up games on my xbox with a cd-rw dvd-r or a dvd-rw and ect ect........... games im talkin about not about music.

by the way my xbox makes a loud loading nose when playing halo only that game. blink.gif

Sorry I didnt answer your question before CHADTECK, I have only jumped to these forums a few times recently due to RL issues.

In one XBOX (v1.1) I have a Samsung, and the other (v1.4 a MS refurbished xbox) has a Thompson.

I have never ever had a problem reading "LASER PLATINUM" CD-R in either of the drives.

Im not sure if its due to the fact that the XBOX with the Thompson drive is a refurbished unit from MS but it works and was only $179 AUS!
