Re: xbox 3060

There's a good article here from Microsoft on setting this up. Have you tried all these steps?

This article here applies if you have a Media Center PC.

Before we can help much more we need to know what operating system you're running and what version of Windows Media. It would also help to know how your PC and Xbox360 are networked together. Additionally, please provide some details on the steps you're following and where exactly it stops working.

Status code 04-8007065b for xbox 360

Dude, you probably have the xbox blocked in your PC's sharing options. Just go to: Control Panel>Network and Internet>Homegroup>choose media streaming options.Your xbox should appear on the list of devices on your connection. simple allow it.
That was my solution to this error at least...later.

Xbox wont let me play movies from my pc 69-807B0191

Xbox 360 has limited codecs, if you want to utilize more file formats download the media pack on xbox live. but for your streaming pleasure try out TVersity or PS3 Media Server it also supports xbox. just install it on your PC then stream the videos to your xbox.

Can i get windows media center without a pc?

No, unfortunately, you need windows media center on your pc to stream videos, music, and pictures from your pc to your Xbox. It kind of sucks I know, as windows media center isn't the most accurate of programs. Has a tendency to loose data. Also, since it is a windows platform, your Xbox will have issues playing certain types of media files. Hope this helps.

How do i get windows media to work on my xbox

To use your Xbox360 as a Media Center Extender, you must "link" the Xbox to your Media Center PC. Follow these instructions:

This should only need to be done once. If you just want to stream music/movies from your PC, it should be auto-detected by the Xbox as long as it's on the same network. Make sure you have the latest version of Windows Media Player (version 11).

I wanna use a phone line to get the internet and the music off my laptop to connect to my xbox 360...?

Phone line? As in dial up? No dice. You need, atleast, a DSL connection or faster to get Xbox live.

You can use a UPnP media server, such as TVersity to stream music from your laptop to the 360. What's cool about TVersity is that even though the music you want to play is an unsupported format for your Xbox, it will automatically transcode (make it into something the Xbox 360 can play).

If you have a broadband connection (e.g. DSL, Cable, Sat, etc.) you can have Tversity stream your favorite internet radio stream to your Xbox 360.

Download the latest Windows Media Player, Tversity or These other media servers, install, configure (TVersity is fairly easy to setup), and go look for the Tversity folder in your Music section in the NXE menu.

I wrote a how-to on setting up TVersity here if you need help setting it up.

Hope this helps,

Xbox 360 Not Playing Music Through External Hard Drive

In windows media player 11, click on the small down arrow below library and select media sharing. Check the box for share my media then turn on you console. I dialog box will pop up asking you to approve file sharing. You can then customize your options for that device. If the dialog box dose not pop up you have a firewall problem. For the Iomega Media Drive, you have to use the software that came with it. Open the program click on configure, select the folders icon, and look next to your media folders and make sure DLNA is on otherwise your console cannot access those folders.
