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

    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.
