    ok.ive tried everytthing but its just not working.ive read every post on here that explains it but nothin has worked.

    ive put the wma files in the tdata/fffeoooo/music/ directory but they dont show up when i try to play them in the xbox dashboard.so i then tried creating a folder in that directory for my soundtrackname and put the wma files in there but still nothing.

    i then read that you need to overwrite songs that youve copied in the dashboard off an original cd.i tried to do this but couldnt find the directory of the music copied.is there a specific directory that an original cd copied using the dashboard goes or could it be anywhere?

    goto xbox-scene.com and read about the xbox soundtrack editor. It will allow you to take those mp3's that you converted to wma ans ftp them right into your MS dash soundtracks. It should be in the tools section I think.

    HERE it is
    http://dwl.xbox-scene.com/~xbox/xbox-scene/tools/utils/xboxst097.zip

    Take this and connect to your xbox,then just transfer your toons to your ms soundtracks.


    GOOD LUCK

    Put in an original CD. Copy it to the HD. Then look in E:\TDATA\fffe0000\music
    Now there should be .wma files in there that are named something like: 3654681654.wma
    6549876511.wma
    6546546513.wma

    Just a whole bunch of numbers like that.

    write down the names of those numbered files, then rename the music you want to FTP over to what the music on your xbox is already named. Then simply drag your newly named .wma files over to E:\TDATA\fffe0000\music

    If all done right it should work.
