    I'm thinking about a 360, and would like to use the hard drive to store music.

    Is this possible? Can I transfer music from my PC to it?

    Cheers

    what does everyone use the 20Gb for then?

    Surely, not just for save games?

    You can send your music to the Xbox 360 hard drive but it's a pain. Burn your music to Audio CDs, (not a cd full of mp3 files). Then put this cd into the Xbox and rip it.

    The hard drive space is used up by downloading demos, videos, trailers, Xbox Live Arcade games etc from the Marketplace. about 7 or 8Gb of the data is locked for use by games (that will support it and probably the dashboard) for cacheing.

    You can download demos, videos, trailers and you can't copy music from the PC, but if you insert an audio CD, theres an option to copy the music onto the HDD.

    EDIT: Beaten to it!

    its annoying i have like 100+ of my albums on my pc, theres no way in hell i'm sitting and putting them all into my xbox360 one by one, it took long enough doing it using my pc and back when i did that i only had around 60 odd. Also the fact that it can't find the song info for the majority of my music sux. I've started just leaving my pc on standby then if i want music while playing move the mouse to bring it out of standby and pick an album from my pc

    The best idea would be to use the connect software and stream the music from the PC. Dont bother ripping to the Xbox hard disk.

    Just a shame I'd need my PC on to stream, when I could've had all my music on the 360 hd.
