    Samsungs dont read + media.

    I have a Samsung drive in my Xbox (version 1.1) and have only ever used + media. It doesn't seem to be bothered about brands either as I have several games on crappy 45p discs and yet this isn't the first time that I have heard people say that +R don't work.
    Perhaps it's the later models that have the problm.
