- I have a modded XBOX.

- Nero version 184.108.40.206
- Princo 1-4x DVD-R Media
- TDK DVD-RW media
- Using Xbox Media Player & Xbox Media Center
- Using a LITE-ON LDW-451S
I am trying to get animation tests (outputted from 3Ds Max in avi format, xvid or divx codecs) to play on the xbox, however it will not read the DVD's. I can't even get a file list.
If I output the animations and burn them off as a DVD movie, they read/play fine (so its not the media).
I've tried using ISO, UDF and ISO/UDF settings, including the "Force DVD-Video compatibility mode (Required for Xbox TM)" but they still don't read on the XBOX..
you didn't mention what program you're trying to use to play the video files on you xbox. in case you didn't know, you need to use something like Xbox Media Center (which is what i use) or Xbox Media Player in order to play video files on the xbox. if you ARE using one of those programs and still can't play off the dvd, and since you say the media works with dvd movies, your only option is to ftp the videos onto your xbox hard drive and play them from there. a quick way to test whether or not your dvds are truly readable in the xbox is to place the dvd into the xbox, ftp into the xbox, and check the contents of the /D/ folder, which is the dvd-rom drive.
