    What are you using to create the CD's -- are you doing it withing the Media
    Center interface, using Media Player outside of Media Center, some third
    party software, etc..

    Information for Windows Media Center Extenders
    Windows Media Center Extenders, such as the Xbox 360, use network ports to
    communicate over the network with computers that are running Windows Vista
    Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate. This update rollup contains updates
    to Media Center programs that may have been previously configured as
    "approved" or as "allowed" by a third-party firewall. If you use a
    third-party firewall, you may have to manually update your firewall to let
    the new versions of these programs access the ports. If you do not perform
    these firewall updates, you may experience failures when you try to connect
    the Windows Media Center Extender to the Media Center computer.
