Well Samsung is supposed to be the best as reported by most people. However from my experience. My old Xbox had a Philips drive I believe and it read everything. Any brand of DVD-R and DVD-RW and CD-RW. I never tried CD-Rs in it.

And now on my current Xbox which has a Samsung drive I can't read Pioneer DVD-RWs and it seems to take a long time to read Verbatims DVD-RWs too. All my DVD-Rs seem to be working good. Oh yeah also I have problems reading TDK CD-RWs... Sometimes it reads them and sometimes not.

So from my experience Samsung is not the best as reported by most people.

i think there is not THE BEST drive - it all depends on the individual - especially the preferred type of CD-R/RW/DVD-+R/W and whatnot...
is there a list out there which drive supports which brand of blank disks? would be very helpful and could be made sticky for everybody to look up before wasting money on the wrong type...
XBOX 1.1 (Mexico 08/02)
Matrix EvoX 3.6 eject
Samsung SV1204H

now that i am in the usa i know how it must have been like in the beginning of the 3rd reich...
