I currently have an xbox modded using the xecutor 2.2 pro chip.
I've had very few problems until recently, when I've noticed that backups I make
are no longer recognised by the Xbox if they are on a DVDR (DVD-R)
Even my older backups, which worked before, are now not recognied.
Each time I insert one it comes up no disk.
Now I've upgraded the bios to try and solve the problem but to no success.
Even when I simply copied a couple of AVIs to a DVDR the disc would not be recognised.
It still reads normal xbox games, and also original DVDs. It also still reads CDR no problems.
Do anybody have any ideas on what the heck is going on?

Yep, your DVD-ROM drive in your XBOX is going out.

Gah, I take it there's no way it could be anything else?
£70 is a lot for a replacement drive....

Well I hadn't thought of that. I've had Princo media that worked for a month and then went bad. If all your games were backed up on the same brand of media, I guess it would be worth a try to use a different brand, but personally, I think your drive is dying. My guess is, in 3 more months it won't be able to read original game discs either.

£70 may seem a lot for drive but its only the cost of a couple of games and when you consider the stuff you can do with your xbox it has to be worth it.
Go on treat yourself get a new drive.

As said already, I would try another brand of dvd-r, especially if you used princo,
I've had a couple princo go bad after a while and sometimes didn't boot...Don't use them anymore...

ok, I've tried several different brands of media in the past, and have tried each one again, it definatly seems to be the drive.
SO! This leads me to a new question.
I have decided to buy a replacement XB drive rather than a normal DVD drive as it is a lot less hassle to fit.
Question is : My Xbox currently has the Samsung drive. Now, do I have to buy a replacement samsung drive? or will a thompson drive fit in and work ok?

Any drive (Xbox) will fit and work
