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.

    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

You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs ...does this mean.. to burn the cd onto the computer?

Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa

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.

Follow these steps :

Simply insert your favorite CD in you Xbox 360 and then pull up the secondary menu with the Xbox logo button.

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.

I want to burn songs from my cd's to my mp3 player. I don't know how to load them on my computer. How do I load my cd's on my computer and then load them onto my mp3? I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 and...

First you need to convert the songs on the CD into mp3 music files then you copy these mp3 files to your mp3 player.
There are several freeware rip programs on the Internet that rip CD songs into mp3 files.
Do a Google search for these rip programs and install the program on your computer.
You can use Windows Media Player, it can rip music CDs and convert the music files into mp3 music files.

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.

How to rip musc to my harddrive

Play Recordable CDs Containing MP3/WMA Audio Files
To play recordable CDs containing MP3 and/or WMA audio files:

Press the eject button on the Xbox 360 console (or select Open Tray from any area of the Xbox Dashboard) to open the disc tray.

Place a data CD-R or CD-RW containing MP3 and/or WMA media on the disc tray with the label facing up (to the right if the console is vertical).

Press the eject button (or select Close Tray from any area of the Xbox Dashboard) to close the disc tray.
Go to the Media area of the Xbox Dashboard. Select Music, Current Disc.
To play all tracks on the CD, select either Play All or Add to Current Playlist.

If you have an existing playlist open, Add to Current Playlist will append all tracks on your current CD to that playlist. Selecting Play All will clear a current playlist and create a new one consisting of all the files on the current CD. (Be sure to save your playlist, if desired, prior to selecting the Play All option.) Files are added to a playlist in alphabetical order by file name. Playlists start again from the beginning once the final track has played.
