The only way to see video files from the comp on the 360 is to stream the files You can do this only if u got Windows Media Center And if so the only formats it plays are: , DVR-MS, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 WMV So if you want to see movies in other formats you got to convert them first Good luck

I need to find out how to update this system its a brand new system and i want to watch movies off of the flash drive can you help me


Plug your xbox 360 in to a router with internet access or alternatively use a wireless network if you are able using the instructions provided on the xbox 360.
It should update automatically to the latest version of software.
Currently the xbox 360 supports file formats of AVI, WMV, MPEG - 4 Part 2, H.264 and QuickTime movie formats. The file extensions included are as follows: .avi, .divx, .wmv, .mp4, .m4v, .mp4v, and .mov.
Make sure that the movie you want to play is on of these formats.
To check the format that the movie is in, just view its properties window.
There are many video converters out there that will allow you to change the format of a movie if it is no compatible. Simply go to download.com and search for "video converter" or "movie converter".
Hope this helps!

Check to see if all your drivers are updated. Check to see that your volume button is up, and not muted. Im sure this will help out. Good luck. Your removing some sort of memory stick to your computor? or tranfering from a RCA cable, Check you drivers.

How to update your xbox360


The easiest way to update your console software is to connect to Xbox LIVE. To update your console by using Xbox LIVE, all you need is an Internet connection.
  1. Connect your Xbox 360 console to the Internet. To learn how, please see Connecting to Xbox LIVE.
  2. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  3. Select Network Settings.
  4. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network, if you are prompted to do so.
  5. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If you cannot connect your Xbox 360 console to the Internet, you can copy the console update from your computer to a USB flash drive and then install it on the console.
Note: The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
  1. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
  2. Download the update file.
  3. Click Save to save the console update .zip file on your computer.
  4. Unzip the file. If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
  5. Copy the contents of the .zip file to the root directory of your flash drive.
  6. Unplug the USB flash drive from your computer.
  7. Plug the flash drive into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console.
  8. Restart the console.
  9. When the console restarts, the installation program starts automatically. Select Yes when you are prompted to update the new console software.

You can update your Xbox 360 console software by downloading the update to your computer from Xbox.com, burning the update to a CD or DVD, and then installing the update on your console. Here's how:
  1. On your computer, download the update file.
  2. Click Save to save the console update .zip file on your computer.
  3. Unzip the file. If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
    • If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
    • If you are using an earlier version of Microsoft Windows, you need to use a special software program to unzip the file (for example, WinZip).
  4. Insert a blank, writeable CD or DVD into your computer.
  5. Copy the contents of the .zip file to the root directory on your CD or DVD, and choose to write (burn) the files to the disc.
  6. Once the files have been burned to disc, remove that disc from your computer and insert it into the disc drive on your Xbox 360 console.
  7. Restart the console.
  8. When the console restarts, the installation program starts automatically. Select Yes when you are prompted to update the new console software.

Can i download a xbox 360 game to my computer then transfer it to disc


Not without modding your Xbox 360. The only thing you can transfer from your computer to the 360 is music, videos/movies and Dashboard Updates.

Hope this helps,

I cant hook up my xbox360 to my computer


You need to have a router in the middle. You cannot hook the computer and the 360 up directly to each other. You plug the 360 into the router and also the PC into the router. Then you run the network tests on teh 360. To get the 360 to play any files (music/movies) on your computer, open Windows Media Player and in options go to teh sharing tab and add to library.

Videos transfer to PC as .jpg files


The best way to transfer is using a memory card through a generic USB card reader. Try not using the USB cord for a while.

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.

Information from computer to 360


The only way to watch video files from the computer to the 360 is to stream them, which can only be done if you have Windows Media Center. Even then, the only formats that it would play are DVR-MS, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and WMV. So if you want to watch movies that are in quicktime, divx, avi formats or any other, you would first have to convert them into the supported formats.
