Make sure your items are not hidden, try using a different folder, also music and and other forms of media can be in different formats that are not recognized by microsoft. Try with other forms of media. Also next time when you post please be a bit more specific, like step-by-step, that way you might even solve the problem yourself!

Xbox 360 has limited codecs, if you want to utilize more file formats download the media pack on xbox live. but for your streaming pleasure try out TVersity or PS3 Media Server it also supports xbox. just install it on your PC then stream the videos to your xbox.

How do i put songs on my xbox


Follow these steps :
1.
Burn CDs. The easiest way to put music on your Xbox 360 is to rip CDs from your own collection. Simply insert your favorite CD in you Xbox 360 and then pull up the secondary menu with the Xbox logo button. Then select "Rip CD" from the menu to transfer the tracks from the CD to your Xbox hard drive.
2.
Sync your computer with your Xbox 360. If you have Windows XP Media Edition or Windows Vista (any edition) and a wireless connection your computer will be able to detect your Xbox 360 and can share media with it. Simply find the "Windows Media Extension" tool on your PC and follow the prompts to stream video to your Xbox 360.

Media sharing WMP11 networking.


Your settings on your PC may not be set to allow sharing to your 360. The way I do it, is I download windows media player 11, imported my itunes library and my movies I had on my PC and allowed sharing via media player. These steps can be seen in more detail by going to www.xbox.com/pcsetup

Can't stream media through xbox 360 using WMP11


I had the same problem in Windows XP and I just created a workgroup to share files on the network. Follow these steps if anyone is still having this problem. My gf has vista and must do it automatically but it's just a matter of remembering to establish a workgroup.

To summarize:
- Enable sharing on WMP 11 --> This should adjust windows firewall automatically but be sure to unblock ports for other firewalls, if need be.
- Create a workgroup --> Start...Control Panel....Network setup wizard.
Follow the steps, if you're connectnig through a router, select "this computer connects through a residentail gateway", apply this to any other computers that want to share files on this network, if necessary.
Restart computer to let the workgroup settings take effect and voila...your computer will now be detected.

Hey there Xbox 360 Question


Hey Buddy,
i,m not 100% sure about streaming mkvs, i,d imagine the 360 can,t keep up with the data input/output.
yet ironically they,ll deal with HD output fine.
I,d say it,s a possible buffer under-run, the datas not flowing in and out quick enough or bottle-necking somewhere.
I,ve been repairing the Best machine of all Time.
X-Box 1 what a babe, will play great games, and also the old retro classics.
i do a little softmodding, and have 1 or 2 collectables like a kasumi-chan limited edition. my own is a crystal with X3 80 gig seagate barracuda,, blue led top-jewel and Front panel, 80 strand IDE Ribbon. All my own work.
I prefer The Hardwired mods myself, but softmoddings cool, well until someone unlocks the Hard-Drive And Reboots to A frag.
Then it,s time for the ultimate repair tool. Xenium Ice Solderless.
Keep em posted Buddy.

Mike @ Compurepair.

Xbox 360 modding


You cannot transfer files to the Xbox 360, you can only stream the material eg songs or videos through it. You can put the items you wish to view on a usb memory stick, but again you cannot save them to your XBox 360 only play direct from the device you use to store the videos or music. You will also need XP media centre to use the media extender software, or even better Vista premium, XP home or Pro will not share the material with XBox because it cannot use the extender software.

Viewing pictures from computer


Did you have the same problem with Media Player 10/Media Connect or is this the first time you've tried it? Given that you have the same problem with pictures stored on a USB storage device this may well suggest that you are using an unsupported file format, how are your pictures saved? Try converting or re-saving your pictures, you can find a list of supported formats in your Xbox 360 user guide but JPEG (.jpg) is usually a safe choice.

Information from computer to 360


The only way to watch video files from the computer to the 360 is to stream them, which can only be done if you have Windows Media Center. Even then, the only formats that it would play are DVR-MS, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and WMV. So if you want to watch movies that are in quicktime, divx, avi formats or any other, you would first have to convert them into the supported formats.
