Default Droid + Xbox 360 = :( ?

Hey Droid Community,

So, a few weeks ago I tried connecting my droid to my 360 to stream a movie, but had no luck getting anything on my droid to play on the xbox. Just wondering whats up with that? Am I doing something wrong, is it fixed now, or does it just not work?

THANK!#$@!#!@#!@#

You have something on your SD card you want to play on your 360?

Did you mount your SD card? When you connect your phone to your 360, you gotta pull down the notification shade and mount the SD card as a drive. I don't have a 360, but I think it should support this.

If you've already done this and still can't play your movie, it might be because it's not a format supported by the xbox.

Well, I dunno then. I don't have a 360 and I don't know the extent of its USB support. I know it'll work with external HDD's and flash drives, and I don't think the Droid behaves any differently when mounted.

But I dunno, maybe someone who has a 360 can share success/failure stories. Sorry.

Just an FYI (not really much help and slightly OT), I was able to mount my Droid on my PS3 and copy files off of the SD card on to the hard drive of the PS3. I could have watched directly off the phone, but I didn't want anyone tripping over/stepping on my Droid. I would have thought that the 360 would be the same tbh...Are you sure you mounted it? My PS3 would not see my Droid until I mounted...

That's really strange. I mean, it should see it as just a removable drive right? Especially with it's windows heritage...I would have thought for sure it would work on 360 before I would have ever thought it would work on a PS3...

Windows heritage? Android is more linux-based than windows-based.

LOL...I was referring to the Xbox 360 :P

**EDIT**
I think I will ask one of the Xbox reps at E3 about the Android not connecting to the Xbox, filming it on my Droid. That should make for a funny video!

The Xbox 360 is locked down and therefore does not recognize USB Flash Drives (unless you hack the system). The problem with the Droid is that it is not a traditional mp3 player. Thus when you connect it to the Xbox 360, the Xbox tries to open it like it would an mp3 player. Because the Droid is not an mp3 player and instead must be connected as a flash drive, the Xbox will not recognize it.

Hope that helps clear some of the air for everyone.

I have watched movies, browsed photos, and listened to music off a USB Flash drive. In fact you can hook an external hard drive to a 360 if all you want to do is use it for music, pics, and movie storage.

This is ENTIRELY UNTRUE. I have used USB flash drives many times to play music on my xbox. As a matter of fact, here is an article from xbox.com about how to troubleshoot if a usb drive doesn't work when you plug it in.

This is directly from an article on xbox.com :
http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/gamesandmedia/movies/videofaq/viewvideoplaybackfaq.aspx

Quote:
"Q: What are the different ways to play video content on the Xbox 360 console?
A: You can play video from a USB 2.0 FAT 32 removable drive or optical media, and by streaming from the Zune software or Windows Media Player 11."
USB Flash drives can also be used to issue updates if for some reason you can't connect your Xbox to the internet.

One interesting thing that I read is that a USB mass storage device connected to the Xbox must use the FAT 32 file system. I don't know what file system the Droid uses, perhaps this could potentially be the issue? Someone may know the answer...

All of my windows based systems require the motorolla driver to even see my mounted DROID. And since the 360 is made by microsoft, I wouldn't be surprised if it didnt see it without a driver installed on the 360.

My 2 pennies.

Most likely the video you want to watch is stored on your SD card. Are there any card readers out there that act as mass storage devices? If so, you can take the SD card out of the droid and put it in the card reader. It may not be the best option, but it could be an option..

EDIT: Found the answer to the FAT 32 question here: http://developer.motorola.com/products/droid/

It is FAT32 file sytem - which would lead me to agree with Screamster. I would bet it's a driver issue.

SORRY - LAST ONE...

After much searching, I think I have a solution. There is an app in the marketplace called "Twonky" which will turn your Droid into a media server. Connect your droid to your wifi network (the same network your Xbox is connected to) and your Xbox should be able to recognize the Droid. You can then begin streaming media (pics, music, video) from your Droid over Wifi to your Xbox.

Problem solved, I think. I am going to give it a shot tonight when I get home from work.

Ok, Sorry for the incorrect info. The last I knew, you couldn't. But it appears that I am wrong.

Now that I know this, I will definitely hook up my external HDD. I'm running low on space and need to free up the 21 GB o9f music that I have on it. And yes, before you ask, it took for effing ever to rip all those CD's to my Xbox 360 HDD .

Thanks for clearing things up for me.

Comments on the Market lead me to believe that pictures and music work OK, but no video.

you use your box that much? i use it for the typical gaming and occasional DVD. xbox implemented so OK stuff but it never took off. like the camera i bought. cool, 4 games to use? novel idea at first, fell wayyyyyyyy short. much like Avatars. could have been so so so cool but in the end, nobody cares. initially they were fun but now what? but clothes and STUPID toys they play with...?

IF xbox pushed the limits of how much fun all this could be, then it would be the system to beat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not saying PS is great, but it feels like you have more control with it. can you feel what i'm saying?

The 360 doesn't support external hard drives. So if you're trying to mount your Droid it would technically be trying to use it as an external hard drive. Therefore it won't work. M$ doesn't like supporting any device that isn't M$ branded. Sad but true =[

I actually tried to use it as a media server, but it doesn't ever work properly. So I ended up saying "screw it" and just ripped each CD to the HDD.

I listen to music when I'm playing online and when I have friends over. I like that I'm able to make a play list with all of the best songs, and then play through them randomly.

Wrong, USB Flash drives will work in the Xbox 360 but it has to be formatted as FAT32 in order for the console to detect the drive. exFAT and NTFS won't work either. I am not sure what FileSystem Android formats the MicroSD with.

It doesn't support them for games and saves because they keep that locked down for piracy but most media works fine as long as the 360 supports it. I use my 360 wirelessly (is that an actual word) as a Media Center Extender so I don't use the drives hooked up to USB anymore.

LOL...Same here...Well, I use it a bit more than that, but not much. Mostly for media purposes (watching xvids and such on my big screen)...That's why I found out the Droid works with it like a week ago. I couldn't find my flash drive and I left my external at work. So I dumped the files on my phone...lol

I have a HTPC so I don't use my PS3's multimedia capabilities at all, and for gaming, my PC is much more capable and the games are much cheaper (wink, wink).

I'm so glad I spent $500 on my PS3 (it's a first gen 60GB w/ PS2 soldered on board)

Well, maybe when God of War III comes out it'll get some more action.

Well i don't know what I am doing wrong, but my Xbox refuses to recognize my Western Digital HDD. It's fat32 and my Xbox just won't recognize it.

Of course this is the device that refuses to recognize my iTouch and computer...

Oh well at least I can still play Bioshock 2. LOL.

Well, good thing I bought a PS3. I use it almost once a month
That's once a month more than I use the TV I bought for my room.
Dang yet another reason why I'd never consider a 360, as if the damn things breaking all the time wasn't enough.
I haven't bought a PS3 either because seems every time they do a firmware update they brick the thing. And I'd probably use it half the amount you do.

True...I pretty much only game on PC. Mine is getting a bit long in the tooth though...Hopefully sping/summer I can upgrade (from E6600, 4 gigs ram, GTX 280 to a Core I7, 6 or 12 gigs, and a nice new GTX 480...)

**EDIT** Sorry for OT

OP, a lot of things + 360 = . For instance, 360 games, the air, a competitive product in proximity to the console, etc.

I use windows media player to stream from PC to ps3. As long as its an avi.
I would image Xbox does to, seems like there is and option for Xbox where as the ps3 was a manual setup.

Mount Droid to PC, configure library to update from your SD.. should work

Don't know bout the Droid, but my Droid X gives me the option in the shade for 'Windows Media Sync.'

Works like a charm on the 360. :P

Well, except that the pictures are the wrong format. Music works though. XD

Cool connecting droid x to xbox360

You can use dlna to wirelessly connect droid to xbox and xbox sees my droid wich I labeled droid x1 on my phone wireless setting, you have to enable file sharing on the droid,it will display on youre home network and i can see my droid on my comp my xbox and my wireless comp but I cant seem to make a simple playlist on my xbox because it says I have to have the music on the hard drive for playlists but i can play my music and videos and pictures from my droid to the xbox 360 hope this helps and you have to tell the droid to accept this connection through media sharing on the droid. hope this helps im not a very good typer.
