How to Read Xbox Files on a PC


The Xbox 360 is a video gaming console as well as media platform capable of storing massive amounts of data for games, music and videos. You have many options for Xbox Live Arcade, an integral component of the Xbox online experience that allows for each user to upload custom content. To do this, you must be able to connect your personal computer (PC) to your Xbox to share data. Microsoft does not officially support modifications through hardware or software to your Xbox 360.

Things You'll Need

  • Xbox 360
  • Personal computer (Windows 98 and above)
  • Local Area Network (LAN)
  • Turn on both the Xbox 360 as well as the personal computer (PC).

  • On the PC, go to Start > My Network Places. Under the Tools tab, select the map network drive.

  • From the Drive:// drop-down menu, select an unused drive letter, such as "Z."

  • From the Folder:// drop down, enter the name of your Xbox in the following format: "//server/NAME." Click "Next" with a left mouse click.

  • My Network Places will now have an Xbox icon with the drive name you just entered. Double left click this to explore the files on your Xbox.
