Sorry there aegis, the original xbox hard drive is a standard type yes, HOWEVER it has what they call a hard-drive lock on it, there is an eeprom on the motherboard of the xbox that locks/unlocks it everytime the machine boots, also the xbox runs "linux" file systems so your windows pc will not recognize the file system.
now as far as getting the music off??? theoretically yes you could get it off.....feasibly not without a lot of work, IE soldering a mod chip into your xbox, etc etc etc....i am not telling you not to do this...i have a modded xbox that i use on a daily basis for a media center and have modded hundreds of them....
i think in our day and age it would be easier for you to "re-acquire" said music than for you to get it off that hard drive. if you want more info on modding the xbox drop me a note

It depends entirely on the monitor. Some have a standard video-in but otherwise there isn't really an adapter you could use. If you take your xbox apart you'll find the hard drive in there is a pretty standard IDE hard drive, and you can plug it into your PC internally. You'll have access to all your music files and they will all be .wma files.

How can i recover lost save game data from xbox live profile?


This used to be possible. Xbox used to offer this service but you could only do it twice a year or something like that. Now they don't do it anymore. The only way is if u had the old hardware and a USB stick or Transfer cable.

Ive transfered my game saves off my old xbox 360 onto a usb and tried to put them onto my new xbox 360 slim but wen i try do it it says not allowed to transfer files so i try to play game and then save it...


the xbox does not allow this in order to stop piracy, you can enable your xbox to play games off a usb if you flash it. its not an easy thing to do but if you want to learn how, look it up on google

New 360


Your old 20 gig will work with your new xbox, the hard drives are compatable no matter how old the 360 is. You can transfer all the stuff but you will have to call xbox and get a transfer kit. Its an adapter so you can attach both hard drives to the same xbox and a disc that runs the program. call 18004MYXBOX and tell them you want one. They are free and you will get it in the mail in around a week.

How can i save music to xbox360


you cant save music from your mp3 player to your xbox but you can put the music onto a cd and do it that way. Or you can hook up your xbox to you windows pc media center but burning the music you want to a cd and then saving it on your xbox will be easier.

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.
