Burning Your CDs to the Xbox
A great feature of the Xbox is its support for burning music CDs to the hard drive on the Xbox. In many ways, this is similar to burning a CD to your computer. After all, the Xbox is really a computer with a different name.
To burn your CD, place the disc in the Xbox. When the disc is in the box, you will see a feature on the play bar that allows you to burn to record the disc. Select this feature and then choose Select All to copy an entire CD; otherwise, you can choose individual tracks. The CD is then burned to the hard drive.
I like this feature, but it also drives me a little nuts. I am used to my 52X CD on my computer, which that can copy entire music CD in about two to three minutes. The Xbox, on the other hand, takes its time. Also, as the CD is being burned, you cannot do anything else. Nothing. You just have the joy of watching the Percent Complete bar fill up the screen.
Your copied music is placed into a playlist group. You can name the group in much the same way you can create playlists in Windows Media Player, WinAmp, or iTunes. The only problem with Xbox playlists is that when you delete the playlist, you also delete all the burned music. Duh!
