Get a CD-RW, use windows media player to burn your songs to the CD, rip to xbox and repeat

that doesn't work for me :( even after I did the update, the unprotected AACs dont work.

There is a program called switch file sound converter it's a free trial but you can downgrade via uninstall and you can convert music files try that and make sure you properaly format your burnted disks

Only problem with that is, it won't let you put the songs onto the xbox hardrive.

The instructable should have been on how to do this with an iPod because most people have an iPod instead of having a million Compact Discs.

Yea, the problem with burnt CD's is that the xbox won't read the files correctly. If you have a normal CD of a band, the xbox will rip the CD just fine.

You need to burn it as an audio CD, not a data CD.

This rarely works. Out of 12 songs I had on a burned CD it ripped 2 successfully.

Sadly, i feel the sound quality from a ripped cd that is then ripped into the xbox, is jus so incredibly lossy, that i'd rather listsen to the game's own music... Now has anyone figured out how to attach the xbox hard-drive to a normal pc, and then transfer their entire collection over? that would be awsome Nice instructible tho:)
