X box 360 wont rip all songs from music cd.

I tryd ripping music to my xbox 360 some from store bought cds and others from burned cds to were i transfered my online purchases to., only like 4 out of the twenty cds ive tried have ripped complete albums, the rest it gives me that circle with a line through it.

and the disc are clean brand new outta the burner or package , not a scratch and it still only ripped half of the songs or sometimes none.

and the songs do play through, but its at the last second it gives me that caution circle.

is there a download to fix that?

oh and my Xbox 360 is brand new.

    the disk that you are using (that you burned) did you burn them from media player or itunes? It will probably load better if they were burned from media player

you can always try streaming the music from your pc to the xbox, look on the link above for more info

I think the problem you are having may be protected content,
songs that have embedded content protection may not transfer to the Xbox 360.

Sorry I cannot be of anymore assistance

I'm trying to add music and videos

Xbox 360 1) Insert the Music Disk into the 360.

2) A screen should appear with it showing a visualization picture and showing the tracks (songs).
If it doesn't appear, go to the dashboard scroll across to the Multimedia section and go to Music.

3) Up the top of the screen it says options like "Burn and Rip".
Choose "Rip" and it'll copy the songs from the disk onto the 360. Give it time to finish.

4) And it should say your done. And it's saved onto your 360.

To listen while playing; When you are in the game, press the xbox guide button (the X button in the middle of the controller that has the green light) and wait till that screen pops up on the side of the screen.
Then Scroll down to where it says (I think it says Music) but you'll see the "Pause, Play and Skip etc... music buttons, and choose "Select Music" and then it'll expand and take you to the music library (In your hardrive) And just choose the song.
And it'll take you back to the gamer tag picture, like before, and press the Xbox guide button and you're back to your game - while the song plays throughout.

And it wont take you away from your game.
Hope I helped ?

Playstation 3 ok, you can put music from a cd onto a ps3. heres how.
put the cd you want into the ps3 then go to music then go to audio cd. instead of x to view the tracks hit triangle and select copy. the ps3 can take songs from a cd and put it on the hard drive

you can take songs from the computer and put it on a ps3, heres how.

first, you need a flash drive (if ur not tech savvy, its a lil usb thing that holds information. make sure its a decent size ( 1gb would be best but more or less is ok). then go to my computer on the computer and you should see removable disk. click that. now drag and drop all the songs you want to move to your ps3. once ur done, take the flash drive out and put it in the ps3. go to music and select usb device, however hit triangle and hit display all and it will show you all the music files. hit triangle again and select copy multiple and get all the songs you want from the flash drive

and yes, you can download songs from the internet of a ps3, heres how

heres some of the sites i use
find a song you like and click the song link. when you do, hover over the link and hit triangle then go to file and select save target. certain files cant be downloaded because keep in mind that it needs to be an.mp3 file for it to be directly downloaded and ready to use (and since you cant rename files on a ps3, you can always download it to a flash drive and change the file name on the pc and then put it back on the ps3)

To download music from a cd

  1. Put the disc in and it will start playing, bringing up the Now Playing part of the Media Blade.
  2. Select Rip CD (it's somewhere on that screen).
  3. Choose the tracks you want to rip (using the tick boxes) and press done.
  4. Enter the Album information. It will start ripping.
  5. You can change song information while it rips.

The Xbox plays the music with the song names and everything but the Rip button is faded and won't rip.

It has to be a disc in order for it to rip. If you are playing a mp3 or other device it cannot rip.

I want to setup my xbox to store music it is an xbox 360 elite

You can store all your music on a USB stick drive and plug that into a usb port. You can stream Music from your computer over your network to the 360.

you can also burn it onto CDs then rip them on the xbox 360.

unfortunately due to stupid DRM (digital rights management) you can't drag and drop music onto the 360 hard drive.

Ripping problems


this could be several things.
1:) the console does not recognise or support the format, in which the cds are being ripped in. i.e WAV/Mpeg3/Avi et,c.
2:) The disk is not being Finalized ( session ended Table-Of-Contents not Written )
3:) The console does not like the type of media/cd/dvd you are using.

thankyou for using Fixya.
