[quote=O’Canada;2187576]OK… have done a little research, and I think I have it straight, now.
The original Xbox, with the DVD Playback Kit, will play std., out-of-the-box store-bought DVDs, and their back-ups.
The newer Xbox 360, as conceived in Microsoft’s infinite wisdom, will only play back *.wmv format video, using the installed drive in the Xbox. Playback (of store-bought DVDs) is possible by connecting a computer to the Xbox, playng the DVD on that, and relaying the signal through the Xbox to a TV.
So it look like your options are to either hook a computer up to your Xbox to get a DVD-DVD back-up to play, or, use the mobile option to create a file that can be written to a DVD and played back using the Xbox drive.
Hope this helps you at least a little…
Sorry to burst your bubble O’C:D, Xbox 360 can play back commercial DVDs as I tried that and it does play back copied DVDs as I tried that already also. The DVDs I played back for my copies were all booktyped to DVD-ROM
