First insert a music CD into the XBOX. Select copy, then press select all. When it asks you to name your soundtrack name it <> and press done. Make sure you enter in the < and > symbols and be sure to use the _ character under Accents. After you press done, you'll see a special thank you and a long list of the people responsible for helping create the XBOX.
Xbox Dash: View music animations:
Insert a music CD and play it on the music screen. When the music plays, you can see an animation in the jewel (that plays with the music). To make this full screen, press Y then press X. To return to the track selection, press any other button.
You can make the jewel full screen when using the DVD remote by pressing Info.
Xbox Dash: Hear voices:
When the dash is started, leave it alone for a short time. The screen will eventually get dark, and you will begin to hear sounds. One of these is an electronic voice.
Playing burned music discs:
Burn music onto a CD-RW (not a CD-R) disc, and close the session when you burn the CD. Place it in your X-Box and rip away.
Note: This also works with .MP3 files. The Xbox can store .MP3s and replay them later and saves a lot of space when compared to the .WAV files that are standard on audio discs.
Each Xbox console has a "name" assigned to it at the time of manufacture. To view the name of your system, play Halo link it to another Xbox and choose a linked play party. The Xboxs will have names above their symbols in the pre-game stat screen. To change your name, play challenge mode in Dead Or Alive 3. Successfully complete challenge mode and you will be prompted to enter a record name. Enter the name that you wish to change your pre-assigned Xbox name to. This will now be the title your Xbox is referred to during linked play. Note: This will only work one time, so be sure that you enter the name you wish to permanently have for your console.
To see your Xbox name easily, start Halo, go into multi-player mode, choose "Split Screen", "Profile", and "Location". After all that is done, there will be a screen that reads "Waiting for more players". The picture of the Xbox is directly above your profile name, and above your picture will be a word. That word will be used as your name when XBox goes online. This works best when there is only one controller plugged into the Xbox, so the multi-player game will not start before you see your name.
Reformat Hard Drive
**WARNING** Reformatting the hard drive will delete all of your saved games and soundtracks.
If you must reformat your X-Box's hard drive, go to Settings > System Info and press Y, Up (left stick), Down (left stick), X, A.
