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.

Older games wont work in xbox 360

Your xbox games? Going online with the console may fix the problem there also is a way to patch the iso to make the games work on the xbox360. This requires backing them up to your computer and saving them to a iso file then patching it with the patcher. The patcher can be found online its called from_xbox_to_xbox360.rar It teaches everything there is about getting your backup to play on xbox 360. I'm unsure if this patcher requires your xbox 360 to be modded. If you mod your xbox 360 you could get banned from xbox.

Best possible solution is to see if you can get an update for the game you are trying to play through xbox live. Some games will play if they are compatible.

X-box 360s brand new, cannot get it to download the update


The easiest option to update the Xbox 360 hard drive is to connect to Xbox Live. The console will automatically prompt the user to install any available updates. Alternatively, users can download the update files to a USB flash drive to transfer to the Xbox 360 hard drive.

Update via Xbox Live

Select "Network Settings" from the "System Settings" menu.

Select "Test Xbox Live Connection" from the network settings. A prompt will appear to update the Xbox 360 hard drive if your system is not already updated to the latest version.

Select "Yes, update now" to install the latest updates to your Xbox 360 hard drive.

Updating via USB Flash Drive

Copy the update files onto the root directory of your USB flash drive. You can download the Xbox 360 update files by going to$ You must extract the files from the .zip file before placing them on the USB drive. The update files cannot be placed into a folder or the Xbox 360 system will not recognize them.

Remove the flash drive from your computer.

Insert the flash drive into the USB port on the Xbox 360 console.

Turn on the Xbox 360. An update prompt will appear when the system powers up.

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.

Transfering of saved music from the orig xbox to the pc...

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.

Xbox 360 from PC

1. In the XBox configuration menu you set it either for a dedicated IP address or DHCP. If you set it for a dedicated IP address you can simply check the configuration for that IP address.

If you set it for DHCP then the easiest way is to download a network scanner (port or IP scanner) from a shareware site on the net - there are many free programs of this type just google for it.

Use the scanner to identify the systems on your network by scanning from to and then eliminate the ones that you know - your router/firewall, PC's etc.

2. Most XBox users transfer their files to their XBox using an FTP Server on the XBox. Depending on how modded your XBox is it may already have one. If not, there are many sites on the net that detail exactly how to set that up.

Once it is configured and turned on, you simply access the XBox via the FTP Protocol - you can do that with an application in Windows or even using the command line.

3. Because it does not have an application to do that already in place. Most users download one or several of the freeware video players from online sites and install them on their XBox.

There are a number of websites online that offer step by step details on how to do this and even rate the various programs. Google is your best friend there.
