I just purchased a Xbox. From what I read it said it could play Svcd and vcd's.


Hummm... mine does not.


I finally got around to dvdrhelp and states that the older Xbox's that had the Samsung player was a good dvd player and played everything. Then the news batch Xbox, which I assume is mine said that the dvd player is called a Thompson or something like that hat does not play nothing.


Is this true? I like for my unit to play Svcds. So say mod it or something like that, but since the unit is brand new,,, I am not sure if that is the route to go. Can anyone her confirm or maybe gimme any suggestions?


Thanks

You need a modded xbox to play those discs, they do not play them from the factory, nor will they read music CD's recorded on a CD-R. The drive brand has effect on media reading, but only on modded machines. Would not suggest modding your machine as it will ban you from using xbox live.

Shahram, thanks for letting me know that. Since this unit is new and I got the bestbuy 24 month warrenty... I do not plan to mod it at all. Xbox-Live I have not looked into that yet. ;)


Thanks again

mine does just fine. i think it depends on the brand of cd-r you use and the program you use to burn. i have a samsung drive and have never had a problem. a friend of mine has a thompson and could not play cd's i burned for him until i switched to nero for burning. now he has no problem playing cd-r's on his thompson.
