    i think i remember a way to burn a CD that will work in the XBOX, as in songs.

    we cant get a burnt cd to play in there.

    i heard people talking about black CDs and CDRWs.

    anyone have any ideas or know anything that would help?

    Those would be the "audio specific" CD's.
    They have a prestamped lead in or "boot" area on the disk that makes them appear as a normal audio CD to older players that wont recognize the burned CD's. Or somthing to that effect.

    I believe Memorex makes them. And they come in packs of 10 with the half thickness slim jewel cases.

    Ive never heard of one type of CD working over another...so give it a try and see.

    lol it doesnt have to be a rw, read the instructions that came with it.

    try cleaning it first off, if that doesnt work then try using a cd that was burned with another computer. if it still isnt working then see about getting it repaired.

    Err, I believe this is a technical Xbox issue, not having to do with your CD discs.

    A Xbox will not play any burnt discs because of the ability to install things onto the Xbox, or extract information from it.

    The only way to get mp3s onto your Xbox is to buy the Xbox Music Mixer, or mod your Xbox.

    Your Xbox is gay. That's why.

    ... Either that or it's just going through a phase.
