Ha ha ha! Will try to get one up soon. I have been listening to a lot of new music, both good and bad, off late. Usually I try to write them up during the weekend, but this time couldnt do it at that time, hope to get something on that soon.

Only DVDs. No it cant play CD-Rs. Dont know about DVD-Rs, to copy them to a DVD-R it has to be in a specific format (I havent really done any research on that). There are many sites which offer hacks to it (like a mod-chip) that lets you modify stuff on your xbox: like adding a bigger sized harddisk, changing the protection on it, etc. Searching on Mod Chip for xbox will let you know about this. Adding a mod-chip will void the warranty on it though. Let me see if I can get more info and if I do, I will send it across to you.
