    my 360 takes ages to rip music to the hard drive, my 4 year old PC can do it at least 5 times faster than the 360.

    the 360 is far more powerful than my pc but its hopeless at ripping music :mad:

    If your PC is faster then why do you not rip them on to the pc then put them on a flash drive and plug that into the 360

    I ripped a cd to my PC that had copy protection on it and it took AGES! Put it in the 360 and it ripped it as quick as a normal CD. To be honest, i've not come across a CD that has been ripped slower than the PC. The 360 however does not automatically name the songs for you from CDDB which is poo.

    I've found it filling in track information sometimes at least, not sure if by cddb or inbuilt database though.
