Put it on a usb storage device, like an Ipod or a pendrive and plug the storage device into the Xbox 360's usb port in the back. For some reason I had issues getting it to work in the front USB ports, but not the back.

How to play video/music on xbox what formats does it support


Movies I convert them to .avi and stream them from my PC to 360. Music is .mp3. Again I stream these from my PC. You can put a music cd in the 360 and copy the contents to the HDD.

Here's a link for one of my other answers to link your PC to 360:

How to stream video through xbox


on the dash board go to media center
write down the 4 digit number and log onto the site it tells you
enter in the number
you will use the media center to look at pics listen to music or watch movies off any windows pc on the network in your house. If you have multiple computers in the house you can access them all with the media center extender.(your 360) it streams all this over your network. sometimes this can be a problem due to lagging. I bought a Western Digital 1terabyte (1000GB) my passport external hard drive and formatted it to FAT32 and backed up all of my music and movies off my computer to it. the external hdd runs off of a usb and doesn't need to be plugged into the wall so I can take it any where. it is a little bigger than my iphone. it works on my 360 and ps3 great. if you have xbox live download the "optional media update" from the marketplace for free to be able to play more types of video formats. you don't need a gold subscription to do this

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.

2.Go to your "Windows Media Player" and click the arrow under "Library" and choose "Media Sharing"

3.Click on the Xbox 360 that is displayed and click "allow"

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,
Bill

Can`t stream media to my xbox


Make sure your items are not hidden, try using a different folder, also music and and other forms of media can be in different formats that are not recognized by microsoft. Try with other forms of media. Also next time when you post please be a bit more specific, like step-by-step, that way you might even solve the problem yourself!

PC Selected - Failed


wmp11 streaming works upon universal plug and play on your router to direct streaming. I have had this problem too. Maybe people do. I found that upnp on my router was always the problem. Make sure it's enabled, and if you have not restarted your router do that. and after you enable upnp, its a good idea to restart it also. I'd give it a 75% chance its a universal pnp problem. Yet if your port forwarding, you might need to disable it, i dont know, i always just used upnp for simplicity. Finally, double check you have a static ip for your port forwards if you continue on that route.

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.
