THANKS FOR LOOKING AT MY GUIDE

YOU MAY THINK THE XBOX 360 HAS A SMALL HARDRIVE WHICH TO BE FAIR IT IS BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN CONNECT TO A WINDOWS XP COMPUTER IF YOU HAVE YOUR XBOX 360 RUNNING WITH A WIRELESS CONNECTION :-) :-)

YOU WILL NEED

1X XBOX 360 WITH WIRELESS CONNECTION

1X PROGRAM CALLED WINDOWS MEDIA CONNECT WHICH CAN EASILY BE FOUND VIA http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/devices/wmconnect/

THIS WEBSITE WILL ALSO HELP WITH INSTRUCTIONS ETC

1X PC RUNNING ON WINDOWS XP AND NET FRAMEWORK 2 -- NET FRAMEWORK 2 IS AVALIBLE FROM http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/downloads/updates/default.aspx

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE MICROSOFT PAGES AND ARE EXTREMLEY SAFE FOR DOWNLOADS AND THE DOWNLOADS ARE COMPLETLEY FREE FOR THE WINDOW MEDIA CONNECT DOWNLOAD YOU MAY BE ASKED TO VALIDATE YOUR WINDOWS XP EDITION WHICH IS A SIMPLE PROCESS ;-)

RIGHT DOWNLOAD NET FRAMEWORK 2 AND INSTALL THE FILE

THEN DOWNLOAD WINDOWS MEDIA CONNCET AND INSTALL THAT

TURN ON YOUR XBOX 360

NOW OPEN WINDOWS MEDIA CONNECT IT WILL BE IN THE START MENU :-)

WHEN YOU OPEN THIS IT SHOULD SHOW THE DEVICES IT CAN CONNECT TO YOUR XBOX 360 SHOULD BE THERE

ALLOW THE 360 DEVICE THIS MEANS YOUR ALLOWING IT TO ACCESS YOUR PCS FILES

THIS IS THE BASIC SETUP YOU MAY WANT TO CONFIGURE IT MORE TO SUIT YOUR TASTE IE MAKE SOME FOLDERS UNREADABLE BY THE XBOX ETC ITS QUITE A SIMPLE PROGRAM TO USE AND THERE IS A HELP BOX IF YOU NEED IT :-)

NOW WHEN YOU CO TO MUSIC OR PICS IN YOUR XBOX 260 YOULL SEE COMPUTER IS ENABLED YOU CAN NOW GO INTO THIS AND VIEW EITHER YOUR PICS OR YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION

NOW YOU DONT EVEN HAVE TO BURN YOUR MUSCI COLLECTION TO THE HARDRIVE LEAVING THE 13 GIGS YOU DO HAVE ON YOU 360 HARDRIVE FOR GAME SAVES AND DOWNLOADS ETC

IF YOU NEED ANY HELPS SETTING THIS UP PLEASE DO A GOOGLE SEARCH OR ASK JEEVES AND IF ALL ELSE FAILS GIVE ME A MAIL BUT ITS PRETTY SIMPLE TO DO :-) AND AFTER DOING IT YOULL HAVE AN EXTERNAL HARDRIVE THAT COULD BE AS BIG AS YOU WANTED IT TO BE :-)

TAKING IT A STEP FURTHER YOU WILL NEED A WINDOWS MEDIA XP RUNNING SYSTEM THOUGH (DIFFERENT TO JUST XP AVALIBLE FROM ABOUT 75 UK POUNDS ON EBAY) BUT WITH THIS YOU CAN STREAM ALL YOUR VIDEOS TO YOU XBOX 360 AS WELL :-)

IMAGINE THAT YOUR MOVIE COLLECTION AVALIBLE THROUGH THE XBOX AT A CLICK OF A BUTTON :-)

I CANT COMMENT ON THE XP MEDIA EDITION AS IAM JUST USING WINDOWS XP WITH MEDIA CONNECT BUT THAT WORKS GREAT FOR MUSIC AND PHOTOS STREAMING THEM WITH NO GLITHCHES

I THINK ITS AWESOME MY PC IS UPSTAIRS WITH 100 GIG OF MUSIC ON IT AND MY WHOLE PHOTO COLLECTION NOW I CAN SWITCH ON THE TELLY IN THE FRONT ROOM SWITCH ON THE SURROUND SOUND AND LISTEN TO ANY OF THE MUSIC ON THE COMPUTER UPSTAIRS WITHOUT HAVING TO CLAMBER ALL THE WAY UP THEM STAIRS LOL :-)

PLEASE NOTE PC MUST BE ON TO ACCESS THE FILES VIA XBOX 360 :-)
