Xbox Music not displaying library

Q: Xbox Music not displaying library

I am trying to use the Xbox music application on my PC to be ablet o get access to my music on my windows phone.

Windows is run off of my SSD (C:\) and my music library is on one of my other drives (E:\). I have added the folder that contains my music to the Xbox app, but it still tells me that "Its Lonely" and I should add some music. I have also changed the "Music" folder to default to my E: drive

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm swapping my xbox for gaming PC and was wondering if these specs where decent enough to run games like arma 3 and battlefield or like dayz ?

And if it's worth swapping xbox one for it

A:Are these pc specs good enough for a starter pc and to swap an xbox one for this gaming pc

No, it is an LGA775 platform. It is old and outdated. For Intel look for a LGA1155 platform or better yet the latest LGA1150 platform. I wouldn't even look at LGA1156, which is the platform between LGA775 and LGA1155. Save yourself a headache and only look at the last two CPU socket platforms.

If you already have the platform, there is still life in it. However I wouldn't advise buying into the platform at any price, especially for a gaming rig.

I know there are a million of these posts however, I couldn't find my specific problem. I have an Xbox 360 wireless controller connected to my PC. Normally the light indicating 1 is light. This lasts for about 5 seconds. Then the light for controller 4 lights at the same time and then 2 and 3 and then 1 and 4 and so on (this happens very quickly). During all this time the controller works fine. Except that every once in a while it disconnects (no lights). Pressing the xbox button inmediately connects it again but is very annoying.

Any help what might be the issue? Also, it worked fine before. Ive just stopped using it for a while and when I went to use again, the problem started.

Thanks for any help.

Hi I have all of the above items and would like to stream my media from the ext hd to the TV I had planned on plugging the hd in through usb port of my Sony bravia tv and playing through the built in media player but mpeg avi or mkv don t even show up in the menu strange because I have played both mp and avi before through usb So that isn t working I think my options are to either - a leave a laptop running with Windows media player running and connect it to my xbox I don t really ext. 1tb pc 360 and bravia machine, sony Linux hd, xbox want to do this as I have happily been windows free for a while now b create some kind of server I have no experience here Linux machine, 1tb ext. hd, xbox 360 and sony bravia pc c Convert them to mpeg somehow but I have read that this lowers visual quality more than I would be happy with d Change the folder type so the TV thinks that it is mpeg something like remux I think I read this sounds Linux machine, 1tb ext. hd, xbox 360 and sony bravia pc good to me as quality is retained due to the folder type being changed but the data is not converted Do you have any other ideas and have you any guidance as to what I should do please nbsp

A:Linux machine, 1tb ext. hd, xbox 360 and sony bravia pc

I'm betting your external drive is formatted NTFS or EXT3/4 and your TV can't read that filesystem. You could try using an out-of-spec FAT32 filesystem that uses up your entire drive (you'll have to format with something other than Windows - gparted should be fine). You could also try setting up some sort of DLNA server that I think your TV can access easily. There are many options for that so I'd google "setting up a DLNA server". Remember also that if you go FAT32 that your file sizes will be limited to 4GB or smaller.

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

I recently bought a powerline adapter to combat my slow wireless speeds and planned on using it for my PC and XBOX 360 when I occasionally use it. The PC install was easy, it was plug and play no problems just installed the latest MSI ethernet drivers and BAM! Wired network, no problem, but today I come home and I felt like playing some GTA Online, so I unplugged the cable from my PC and into the XBOX and it can't connect. I am using a TP-Link AV500 Nano powerline adapter and a BT Home Hub 4 router. I also made a quick video to demonstrate my problem. As mentioned in the video I can use the internet just fine on my PC, the only problem is with the XBOX. Thanks again -hopgop1 NOTE: Video uploaded to YouTube as for some reason TechSpot doesn't support .3GP so I converted it to .MP4 and it doesn't support that either =[ link

I have a trendnet TW100-S4W1CA wired router connected to a wireless G access point. I cannot get my Xbox to talk to the router either with a wired connection, or wireless.

With my old router they worked fine, but the old router went tits up.

How do I configure the router so the Xbox can see it? the password is correct on my access point and all my other devices in the house can talk to the router.

A:Getting Xbox to talk to Trendnet wired router

So I guess you are trying to stream media and such. Depending on the version of OS you are running you may have to give rights for the xbox to talk over network. Such as in Windows 7 sharing and advance options go to meadia sharing and allow the Xbox to be seen by everyone. What are you trying to accomplish fully?

I have a USB 2.5 external HDD that I want to use with my Xbox 360 to play original Xbox games.

An emulator is required to play original Xbox games and the 360 will download this etc. for you with an Xbox 360 that has an internal HDD.
Mine is only a 4GB internal HDD so will not perform this function!

Can anyone help me make the external USB HDD perform this function???


A:Making an External HDD backwards compatible for Xbox games on an XBox 360

360 isn't backwards compatible with Xbox games. Since you have digital copies of the game, we can't be sure you actually own a legit copy. So, we can't help you sorry.

But, you can use this to format external drive for your 360.

After removing the video card, everything worked perfectly again. However, when the video card was plugged in, the fans were running but the monitor was still not displaying anything.

A:Spotify won't play music because of a problem with my sound?

Can you take a screen shot of the actual error message and post it? You might just have to re-install the sound card driver, but who knows you haven't given enough info yet to give you a good answer.

So this initially was a problem with my games not playing in a certain resolution without everything being cropped off on the side, and it turns out to be a problem with my resolutions/monitor in general.

I have a Samsung 2333 24" 16:9 with a 1920x1080 native resolution, and whenever i put it on 1280x720 which is the 720p setting for my monitor, everything is being cropped around the edges. The task bar is halfway gone and my desktop icons are off the screen at the top. Any idea what could be causing this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, I have a cable virgin media (20MB) connection. The router that I was supplied with only allows a port to be open to one xbox at a time. The upnp only assign a port to one xbox which means that the other 2 get a "NAT Type: Strict" message.

What cable router would you recommend to allow me to connect 3 xboxs?

I recently purchased a new Cisco Valet Plus (M20) router. I completed setup of the router and when i retested my internet connection on my Xbox 360 I am getting an indicator of a Moderate NATsetting. I did not have any issues with my previous router, so this leads me to believe I have an issue with the new one. So far I have tried two solutions:

A- Port Forwarding. Enabled port forwarding for the following:
xboxlive 80 TCP
xboxlive 88 UDP
xboxlive 53 Both
xboxlive 3074 Both
Setup a static IP address of
Enabled UPnP

B - Enabled DMZ on static IP address for Xbox

At this point I'm not sure if I'm still having issues with the router or I just did not set something up correctly. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156

And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one;

Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.

In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

Here is a test report done on a few of these boards at Techspot;

I really hope someone can help me with this. My monitor is displaying a no signal message at startup, not even showing the windows boot screen. However, I plugged the cable into the on board graphics card and it works fine, it's only when I try it on my other card that there's a problem. I've cleaned and reseated the card, but no joy.

This is a completely out of the blue problem. It was working fine last night, tried to turn it on this morning, and this happened. Any advice? Or do I just have to get a new graphics card?

A:How come some background music of games sound different?

try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.

A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers

unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

suggest you use DHCP for both IP and DNS settings on the System.Nic card

then use IPCONFIG /ALL to see the settings assigned.

if you must have static IP on the Xbox, copy all but the IP ADDRESS into the
Xbox settings and then use an IP address like x.x.x.100

It looks like that system doesn't do video pass-through - so you'll have to hook the video from the X-Box straight to your TV. You can pass your audio into the system though, and your best quality will come from using a toslink cable from your (I'm assuming it's an X-Box 360) to this device.

I am running XP/Win7 on my AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ powered Pavillion. I have an integrated Realtek AC'97 audio card and lately I've noticed that all music playback is choppy - whether it's iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Youtube. I've tried different speakers, headphones, etc., but reagrdless of the hardware I use, I still get the same problem. It sounds as if the music is being paused and then played very quickly throughout the song. I don't really notice it in Windows sound effects, but that may be because they are short in length. I notice this happening on both XP and Windows 7 and don't know why.

Please help!!!

A:Music Playback is Choppy

Try updating your audio and chipset driver. There could also be a program running in the background taking up to much memory or CPU cycles. If you listen to music alot you should get a dedicated sound card. You can get a really good Audigy on Ebay for under $15. Onboard audio is notoriously troublesome. Too many other things in the system can interfere with it.

Yesterday, my monitor stopped displaying anything. This started happening a few days ago but after a few reboots it would display again. However, it has permanently not displayed anything since yesterday.

I have two spare monitors which I have tried to use. However, the plugs do not match; therefore, I can't test it out on a different monitor.

The possible parts which I think could be causing the problem are the video card, PSU, motherboard, or the monitor. When I boot the computer, the video card fan is spinning so I am not sure if that is the problem.

I would like some suggestions and opinions on this. Thanks

Hey I recently ordered some new parts to build a better computer and have ran into some trouble.

The main bit of it being that my monitor isn't displaying anything when I start up the system.

Currently I have an old dell monitor plugged into the video card which is a NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT( ) , using an adapter to hook up my monitor.

I would have it plugged into the mother board ( ) except that my monitor plug is VGA.

Basically what I was wondering is if there is an adapter out there so that I could plug the monitor into the motherboard, or if there is some way I could get it to display through the video card without changing any software settings?

A:Monitor not displaying anything

I'm assuming that you're using a DVI to VGA adapter? That's the one that you would use if there's no VGA input for your gfx card. Don't plug your monitor into the motherboard (assuming

You aren't displaying anything? Even at the post screen? Or once you boot into windows? If it's the former, then your graphics card isn't working/connected correctly. If it's the latter then drivers are your problem.

I assume you at least get a POST? Check to make sure that your graphics card is inserted properly, that the adapters/cables are connected properly (maybe change ports if you have more than one).


Hmm, I looked at your motherboard, and it's SLI capable, meaning that there are two slots for the graphics card to go. Try moving your card over to the other PCI-E slot. Also, sometimes there's a "card" on the motherboard itself that you have to flip over or switch to enable SLI if you're going to try to do that...

Here is what I know:
I know that you can connect to xboxlive by plugging the xbox into the pc via ethernet and bridging the connection with your wireless internet connection on your pc. (Wireless because pcs generally only have one ethernet port).

My problem:
My university does not allow consols to connect to the wired internet (there is no wireless). My computer is connected to the internet via ethernet.

My question:
If I buy a USB to Etethernt converter for my pc and plug the xbox in there will I be able to have 2 connections running, 1. pc -> internet, 2. pc -> xbox. And if I were to bridge those connections would my xbox be able to go online?

Thanks to anyone who knows or helps.

A:Connecting to Xbox Live through Computer

I'm not sure what kind of restrictions your university has put forth to disallow consoles from getting online but two ideas to share the net connection would be: 1) a router, or 2) get a second Ethernet card for your PC so you can have the Xbox connecting strictly through your PC.

Once again, that might not be enough if the system admins are blocking specific ports or domains but you can always try.

I am trying to hook up my Pavilion 700 to a Dell CRT monitor. When I plug it in to the VGA and turn it on, the orange light on the monitor goes green (like its supposed to) but nothing displays on the screen. I even removed the add-in video card and just tried using the integrated but with the same results.

I know the monitor is not bad because I just tested it with two other computers and an xbox360.

Any ideas? All help is appreciated.

I was wondering if anyone had heard of a fix this problem. After installing the software for an Xbox wireless gaming receiver, I attach the device as instructed. When I do, my Logitech G7 mouse freezes up until I reboot. I have seen others with this problem on Logitech's forums, but I have yet to see any fixes. Microsoft's support has been no help so far. I assume the issue is driver related, as others with different system setups also have the problem, but I don't know if it is a Logitech driver, or Microsoft...or whether a fix even exists for this problem. Thanks for the help!

I have had an pretty basic low end router for quite some time now and wireless has never been a problem but recently it started failing to connect or even find the network, only sometimes my connection would show up.

Anyways I decided to go and buy some belkin router assuming it would be better... and it is, but I'm still having the same problem, sometimes I can connect for a few mins and it'll then dsconnect. Sometimes it won't find the network but it'll find others and other times it'll fail on DNS? I've connected through wired connection and it basically does the same thing? but it'll find the network and fail on DNS! despite having other devices ( computers) that connect fine wireless.

Any possible suggestions?!

So...I got the latest drivers from creative and as I was installing them, the sound started working suddenly, and then it stopped after I decided to go through the setup screens again for the xbox 360.

Hi, I just bought a new monitor (the Samsung 2693HM) and I cannot get my notebook (linked to it through VGA) to display 1920x1200 (the monitor's native resolution) on there. Right now it's running at 1280x800 (my notebook's monitor's native resolution) on the Samsung with black bars on top and bottom.

My notebook (Sony Vaio N110G) runs on Intel GMA 950, which according to Intel, can support resolutions up to 2048x1536 at 75hz, so it shouldn't have any problems with this monitor, but I can only get it to run on resolutions equal to or lower than the native resolution of my laptop monitor (ie. 1280x800 or lower). Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if this should be in here or the display section.

A:Intel GMA 950 have trouble displaying 1920x1200

The Intel GMA 950 graphics will display at 1920 X 1200. I know this because I'm sitting here staring at one. Although it's in a desktop with provision for only one monitor, therefore that could be irrelevant here.

Have you gone into display properties yet and identified the monitor? Right click on the desktop, then on the "display properties" click on the "settings". Right click on the monitor 2 icon, and see if it will allow you to set the resolution from there

Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?

A:Music files

Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).

I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion

What exactly does that X360 adapter hook up to, USB 2.0 port? If so, once you installed the drivers it should allow the system to boot normally. Perhaps the device is configurable through gaming devices? If there is any software (not drivers) required to use the adapter/controller, maybe it needs to be patched/updated for use with that mobo?

I have encountered a problem when I have tried to burn music to cd r. The drive will play music ok- so no problem there. However when I try to burn some tracks it will only record about 10 seconds. I will then get an error message saying that my cd is dirty or may be recording at wrong speed. Have tried other speeds without any success also tried downloading latest version of window media and closed all other applications that may have caused even a remote problem. Can anyone help or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?

A:Can't Burn music to cd

Is this a laptop or a desktop computer.
It seems as if your CD drive is worn out of alignment. Either the read laser or the write laser is out of whack or it is just worn out. How old is the drive?
Burners last about a year, on average... less, if used a lot. It is easier and cheaper to replace them, than to fix them.
If you are in a dusty climate, you can remove the bottom from the burner, and use Dust Off or other canned air with difluoroethane gas to clean the unit. Do not touch the laser... just blow dust out of the drive.
There are some utilities that will reset the burner on some models. Do a Gurgle search for your brand and model.

My router is a bit simple, not the latest around, but my NAT on xbox 360 has been STRICT for a while now and I dont know how to set it back!. I try enabling Upnp, opening ports and also DMZ but I have to assign it to a certain IP Address guessing the 360's connecting IP address. But i am not fully sure of how to get it to OPEN NAT.

Please Help,

A:NAT Xbox Live 'Strict'

general options for getting your NAT Status to Open

There are four ways to overcome a Strict/Moderate NAT setting when using a router. I have listed them in the order of preference:-

1. If you have an Xbox Live Certified router, use the certified firmware for your router
2. Use UPnP. If your router supports this. Turn it on. The router will work out the ports it needs to open for Xbox live. If your router does not have this feature, check the manufacturers website for the latest firmware. (also make sure portforwarding and/or DMZ is turned off as they interfere with UPnP)
3. Port forwarding (look up your router here then follow the instructions for Xbox Live 360)
4. Use a DMZ (De-militarized Zone)
The DMZ (De-militarized Zone) is area that sits outside of your routers firewall. Don't worry though your not at risk with your Xbox


Do not mix and match portfowarding with UPnP and/or DMZ. Each of the methods should be used on their own. Do not turn on UPnP and expect to be able to setup a DMZ or Portforward.


If UPnP is not an option for you, or you have tried it and it does not work. Look up your router here then follow the instructions for Xbox Live 360. When you port forward the ip address that you need to forward to is the ip address of the Xbox. It is always best to use a static ip address when portforwarding, see this section for more details.


Consult your router documentation to find out how to put your Xbox IP Address in the DMZ of your router. It is always best to use a static ip address when using a DMZ,

Also what router have you got??? is it a belkin?

I'm on vista and am trying to play my 360 through my PC speakers, I have the RCA to headphone jack converter. Although following a tutorial on how to do this, it didn't work, finding out that I had to plug the RCA to headphone jack into the line in socket (blue). Still no sound from the speakers when 360 is on but when looking on the control panel it shows sound being produced via the volume indication bars. I'm not sure if this is because of the crappy stock sound card I've got (Sigmatel or something?)?

I've also ordered a pair of X-140 speakers which have headphone/aux support so will it work with those without buying a new soundcard???

If you have the "jack re-tasking" option then you can set that blue

Hello.. I am having MAJOR problems with my xbox 360 and connecting to xbox live. I have tried everying that tech support has told me and they have ran out of suggestions. My problem is that when I select my wireless network and run the test it says: Wireless Network: Not connected. I have connected to other wireless networks so its not my network adapter, and its not my ISP because ive connected directly to my modem.
Hardware: Modem connected to my D-Link DI 524 wireless router, which is connected to my computer. I also have a wireless network adapter on my xbox. My xbox detects the network but cant connect to it, so I know its my router and a configuration with it that I need to fix from that website.

Help very much appreciated!

A:Wireless Router Configurations for Xbox 360

Personally, I absolutely despise D-Link products, they don't play nice when it comes to a lot of devices like X-boxes, at least that is my experience.

I assume, since it cannot connect at all, that it is not a DHCP or IP related problem but still, make sure DHCP is enabled and working on your router.

What type of encryption are you using (if any) on your wireless network?
I would recommend using a WPA2-personal key if your devices can support it.

In the end, you can always try restoring your router to factory defaults and working your way up, to see what the problem is with the Xbox connecting.

If it doesn't connect when the router has factory defaults enabled (make sure wireless is active though, some factory defaults disable the wireless...) then you need different equipment probably...

I recommend a Linksys WRT600N or similar.
I recommend the ones that support wireless N and dual frequency (5.0GHz and 2.4GHz) because I don't recommend buying out-dated technology, cause it becomes more out-dated quite fast... and besides, the speed of the wireless N routers when used with compatible N adapters is so nice and fast...

Alright, so my m8 and I have our xbox360s plugged in at my house. We can connect to Xbox Live and play games, but only for a short time. Then we get systematically disconnected from Xbox Live. My xbox's network check says my NAT is open, but my friend's says the NAT is 'moderate' or something to that effect. We have the xboxs plugged into a DLINK router, which is connected to a Linksys router in another room. (before the DLINK it was a cheap, $15 one got a Future Shop ) up until about a year or so ago it worked perfectly fine! now its got a really good connection speed but can't seem to keep connected for longer than 10 - 15 minutes.
