Why doesn't my X-BOX...?

...Play CD-R's, RW's or any other copied media. I would have expected it to at least play CD-R's and RW's! This is proving to be a bit of a pain.

Also how big is the standard hard drive?

You dont necessarily need your Xbox modded to play CD-RW's, depends what DVD drive you have in your Xbox. I have the Phillips drive in mine which happily plays copied CD-RW's. The Samsung drive is the best one which'll play most things you can throw at it.

Mine also plays anything but it is chipped and according to the above link has a samsung drive.
I think the standard hd is about 8gb?


Novice Member
yeah standard is 8gb. i also have the 10gb seagate that they used for a few xbox's, so i got lucky there too lol

Mod it, chuck in a bigger hard drive and then FTP stuff across. Doesn't matter what DVD drive you've got then :)
