    Heya, I finally picked up an Xbox yesterday, along with the usual games, and was wondering, how do I add music to it? I've read you need to copy it off CDs but my CD-Rs won't read >.

    You've got to softmod that thing. Gives you a full media center that plays everything, and an emulator that plays everything before the PS2.

    You place a CD in there.
    Then just save the mp3 files to the hard drive (I haven't played a regular XBox in a while, but I believe that's how you do it.

    Actually its a ton easier if you just burn your songs on a CDRW and copy them over. Original xboxs don't like CD Rs for some reason

    Yeah it does take forever but if the guy isn't looking to mod his system then its the cheapest/easiest route
