After attaching a camera or portable media device to your Xbox 360 console, you cannot play the content or the files on the device.
If the Xbox 360 console does not recognize the attached device, the storage device might not be formatted using the FAT32 file system.
If the Xbox 360 console can see items on the storage device but cannot play or view them, the content is likely in a format that is not compatible with your Xbox 360.
- You can connect a portable music player to your Xbox 360 console to listen to music as you play Xbox 360 games. However, your Xbox 360 console does not support all music formats or all portable music players. You cannot play copyright-protected music from certain services, such as Apple iTunes. To play unprotected advanced audio coding (AAC) music from an Apple iPod, use your Xbox LIVE Free or Gold Membership to download a free update from Xbox LIVE. Every console that requires this update must connect to Xbox LIVE.
- When you are using a friend's Xbox 360 console, Xbox LIVE will allow you to download the AAC codec again. But if you've already downloaded the codec to your own Xbox 360 console, the codec will not work on your friend's console. This is because the codec is only valid the first time that it is downloaded by a specific gamer profile. You may receive the following error message if you try to download the codec more than one time by using a specific profile:
Can’t download – Optional Ipod Support
Status Code 8007005
- The iPod cannot stream video to your Xbox 360 console because of a proprietary video format. However, you can play some music files from an iPod.
To listen to unprotected AAC files from an iPod music player, follow these steps:
- Move to Game Marketplace.
- Select Search.
- Search for and select Optional Media Update.
- Select Confirm the Download.
- After your download is complete, select Continue to return to the Xbox Dashboard.
You can now listen to unprotected AAC audio files by themselves or in playlists together with MP3 and WMA audio files from the following devices:
- An iPod
- A portable audio player
- The Xbox 360 Hard Drive
- A USB flash-memory device
