    How can I connect my Xbox360 to my laptop?

    I have a Dell Insprion 1720 running Windows 7. I was wondering if anybody would know any cords or cables that I would need to connect my Xbox360 to my laptop so I could play games on it.

    So far,as I know,you can not connetct your Xbox to your PC directly,we usually use hard disk to complete the connection.hope it can help you.
    And you need USB Hard-Drive Transfer Kit to make your connection successfully! Good luck.

    You most likely want a USB video capture card. Your budget, decides the quality of the image portrayed on your laptop.

    The prices are usually;

    Easycap- $5-$15.
    Dazzle - $50-$90.
    Roxio - $80-$100.
    HD PVR - $150-$200.

    You also have to make sure there is no lag if you are using a capture card and playing games off the program software! Playing a game with a 1-2 second lag isn't very enjoyable. HD PVR has a lag due to video processing and is transferred via USB 2.0, but also requires a AC adapter. There is no lag or slight lag on the easycap, but quality isn't very good. Can't speak for anything else.

    On my laptop i plug my xbox360 directly to a hdmi port but theres a 1 sec lag due to the software i use to view it (gamemate) but ive seen others use the hdmi port without software and just use the monitor directly like a tv to play but ive only seen it on desktops dont know if it can be done in laptops.

    i think this is the usual case of someone seeing a vga port on the laptop and thinking it's an input - it's not.. 99% of laptops don't have video inputs and the capture card is the only method to achieve this. In reality it's not practical.
