Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Viewing pictures from computer

Using Windows media player 11, I am able to stream music to my console, but cannot view pictures from the PC. I am using XP sp2. The message I receive is 'no pictures found'. It is the same when I plug a USB stick into the console. Many thanks in advance. Steverton.

    Thanks for the advice nliwilson. My pictures are in the .jpg format. I decided to try it on my other pc and managed just fine. So I put it down to the WMP11 on my first pc, because I do keep having problems with that media player. For example, if I play music through WMP11, after about 5 minutes the program shuts down. I have tried to re-install, or roll back to WMP10, then re-install but to no avail.
    So thanks for trying, it must be an issue with pc1 and WMP11.

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.

    LOL! you've got to love Microsoft's "quality" software!
    As with any major technology from Microsoft always hold out until they release service pack 1 and even then check the forums first.
    Sorry I couldn't help.

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?


not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

Cant find a media server on my ps3


make sure your PC and PS3 are networked (you can do this via wireless but using the LAN cable is better if you want to watch films)

You need to set your PC up to be the media server. you will then be able to stream all you music and movies that are on your pc to your PS3

Upgrade your copy of windows media player to 11

once you have done this go to the libary icon. Select sharing and select share with other devices.

Then boot your ps3 up and search for media server

You should see a dialoge box on your telling you a new device want to access. Tell it yes. then you should be able to your view the entire libary.

To access your music etc you always need to make sure media player is running on your pc

Hope this helps.

Creative Zen - can't download music from XP SP2


When you plug the Mp3 player into 2 computers running slightly different versions of XP, a reformatting occurs which will cause it not to work on one PC or the other. You must reformat your player for the home computer. Actually, you might want to check the firmware also: Go to Creative's website and double-check the firmware - it will also give you the best way to reformat your player:

1st - BE VERY careful using limewire - it is SO very virus laden, and embedded in pictures and music.
