Is it possible to move music albums onto the hard drive of my Xbox 360 so I can listen to my own music when playing games?

If so, is simply transfering by USB pen ok?

Dunno, since when i use a stick, there is no option to copy, move etc, so i'd love to know this too
My pc is hardwired to my xbox, but for various reasons, (inc streaming TV) i cannot use WMP 11, only V10 and when i go thru the help files, it says i need WMP11, there was some other software too, i forget the name, but that didn't work either :-(

I find it easyer to stream threw media player and router.! really easy guide on microsoft (and everywere)

Yeah, but this easy guide is based on iirc WMP11, not 10, or to have a windows media centre pc instead of XP/Vista

CD only for copying that I know of... can get really annoying naming the songs etc.

I'm pretty sure you can transfer them from your flash drive. At the very least, you can play songs directly from it.

The only way to get media on to the 360 is via a Audio CD.

I can see what you're saying, and perhaps i have taken this off topic, apologies to OP, but the question remains, how to MOVE/COPY files to HD of xbox, not streaming

Can't you have the pen drive plugged in and stream it off the pen drive, whilst playing the xbox.I know you can do this on a ipod
