Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
is there a way to use my old xbox on my pc monitor? i don't know what kind of adapter to use so i can hook my xbox to my pc monitor. and also i want to transfer the music that i save on the cd ripper of my xbox to my pc. is that possible?
please help and many thanks, and more power.
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.
