Its wierd u know xbox will only read xbox games and cd's you buy it will not read cdr's or cdrw its stupid, it should especially be able to read mp3cd's cause it has a 20gig hd and u can fit alot more mp3's and regualr cd take up the space a lot faster.. also read this http://www.xboxweb.com/features/dvd.html
it talks about xbox and watching dvd's and how xbox wont work with some dvd's like all disney movies or other movies just check it out... You pay $300 for the system you should expect it to do some extra stuff not just games... maby it wont read cdr and cdrw as a preventative measure from pirated games in the future?? just a thought

it does play CDRW, but it will not play CDRs, so, taken right from i site i write for -

Quote:
Playing burned music discs

Burn music onto a CD-RW (not a CD-R) disc, and close the session when you burn the CD. Place it in your X-Box and rip it. Note: This also works with .MP3 files. The Xbox can store .MP3s and replay them later and saves a lot of space when compared to the .WAV files that are standard on audio discs.


i still need to test this, to see if it works

well actually every x box has a 10 gig HDD
but each x box use 2 gigs of cach for certain games, plus the xbox OS an HDD partition.


here are the official specs on the Harddrive contains

- Windows 2000 Core OS
(Custom designed by MS)
- DirectX 8.0a (Drivers)
- Part 1 of the OS is on the hard disk < 1 MB
- Part 2 of the OS can be DVD disc < 500 K
- (Part 1 includes the core OS, DirectX, DVD playback, some drivers and 3D user interface)
- (Part 2 includes things like libraries, other drivers and other features needed by the developer)
- OS takes less then 3 MB in RAM
- The OS has a 3D user interface when no games are inserted to play music CDs, run DVD movies etc.
- The games run in ring 0, known as kernel mode which is the fastest mode possible
