Firstly,your Xbox will not be able to read normal PC Data-burned DVDs. You have to make a special ISO (CD Image) to burn onto a DVD so your Xbox will read it. I'm not 100% sure about adding subtitles to them, you possibly could. A good program to make Xbox ISOs is Craxtion4. For burning just use what you normally use for ISOs (Nero, DVD Decrypter etc.)
Secondly, why burn them to DVD when you can just transfer them over your network to your Xbox? It saves DVDs and would be a lot quicker.
Lastly, before making any more posts, atleast sign up and put some info in your profile. Use your signature as a description of your Xbox (Modchip, BIOS, HDD Size, plus anything else), so that other ppl know what system you have. We take time to help people out but it annoys me when people can't even take 5 minutes to join and make a profile. I'm not telling you off or anything (as you probably didn't know), it's just that I see so many anonymous posts here and it makes it hard to really give specific answers back to people.
Anyways, hope that advice has helped a litte. If you want more specific information you can search the tutorials here, or take 5 minutes to sign up. It's free for normal membership so you've got nothing to lose
