Hey guys I'm trying to play an avi file on my xbox, it works fine if i go over the network from my pc, but if I burn it onto a disc or to a flash drive the xbox wont recognize it. Infact it doesnt even say there is a disc or flash drive plugged in. Any ideas?

Your PC could be transcoding the video into something the xbox can understand. The list of codecs that the 360 supports I think is pretty small.
