xbox 360 doesn't want to play divx dvd

ok I have an xbox 360 and xbox live so I have the latest fall update
and I just burned some divx files to a dvd and put them in the drive
and the xbox doesn't want to play them it says unrecoginized disc

if I put them in my laptop dvd drive it sees the files no problem
is there something special I need to do to get them to play in the xbox?

its not the divX files ,  its the disc it can't see.  try a different blank
the types are:    DVD+ or DVD-  or DVD+WR or DVD_WR
or if the divx  file can fit onto a CD try a CD

if the xbox is saying "it doesn;t recognise the disc"  - its the disc not the contents that is the problem. ptr andother type or manufacturer
