you have to have windows media player 11 if you are running windows xp SP2

then goto your options and goto the Library tab, then goto sharing.... check off your xbox 360

and you should be good to go

Install WMP11..go to library>media sharing and your 360 should show up there and then allow it..then set the folders which you want to share and your done.

- use windows media player 11 like mentioned above.
- then setup the shared files/folders as mentioned above.
- go to the 360 and under media go to videos (or music) and you may have to change the source to PC from harddrive.
- if it says unable to connect to pc, go back to the pc and under the wmp11 enable the xbox360 connection. You should see a 360 icon.
- then go back to the 360 and see the files.

should be good to go.

Go to Windows Media Player 11 and under the Library tab, look for "Media Sharing..."

By now, you should make sure that your Xbox is connected to the internet via the same network as your PC. Another way to say this is make sure the computer in question and the Xbox are connected through the same router.

Now back WMP11. Click on "Media Sharing..." and check the box for "Share my media". Click OK. Now on the list of devices, you should see the Xbox. Click allow.

Go back to the Xbox and try to connect to the PC. It should work.
