can you install a data disk of just mp3 files to your jtag hd? if so how?
Depends on what you mean by "data disc"
If you want to put mp3 files on your HDD, then why not FTP into the 360 and copy them that way.
Or put them on a USB drive and transfer them.
i want to play them with the system music player is that possible?
Nope, those have to be burned as an Audio CD.
and that where my 1st question comes in how can i install a data disk of mp3 to play in the system music player?
For the system player, you can't.
They have to be ripped and converted by the 360 in order to be recognized by the original MS dash.
It is theoretically possible to convert them to wma on your PC and then copy them to the internal disc.
but I think you'll still need to deal with indexing them.
Making it unpractical to do so.
Best thing you could try is getting a rewritable CD and burn music to it, copy it to the 360, format the CD, and repeat the process
yeah that would take forever... nvm thanks anyway
It's afaik, the only way of doing so ;p
No prob tho~
In that case you'd probably be better off putting your music on a Samba share and sharing it through the 360 that way, no?
What OS do you run? Windows, Mac, *nix?
DinohScene does FSD support playimg music from a Samba share (if it supports playing music at all)? I know the stock dashboard can, but I don't have a glitched system to try with FSD.
Edit - keep in mind your Xbox needs to be connected to the same network as the computer that holds the music for this to work, and that you're going to be streaming the music, not playing it locally. If you want to play it locally then FTPing it to the Xbox is probably going to be your best bet then.
Edit 2 - missed the part where you said you want to play it with the system music player, where FTPing it isn't going to help you, and where FSD doesn't matter. So my question stands then as to what OS you're running, Windows, Mac, or *nix, and what version of it?
Got to use the original dash for it.
I never discovered a audio player in FSD.
i run windows 7
Windows 7 Guide to Samba Shares - XBMC.org
Adding to this, on your Xbox (modify however you need for your dashboard, I'm on the most recent one and that's all I can instruct from), you're going to go to the System Music Player, and as long as it's a visible share it should show up in your list of available sources.
I have a hidden, password protected samba share on my server and the 360 doesn't let you manually add network locations... bullshit >_>
thanks for your help but i found portable speakers ill just use them
