    Here is my tutorial on a few ways to play music on iPods and iPhones:



    For iPod Nano, iPod Video and iPod Shuffle:

    Fortunately, Microsoft made it easy to play music on iPod Nano, iPod Video and iPod Shuffle.


    All you have to do is download the optional media update from Xbox.com and press[​IMG]

    It can be found here:
    Code (Text):
    http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/Search?q=optional%20media%20update#All

    Now all you have to do is connect your iPod and Xbox via the USB cable and now all your songs and playlists will show up like so:



    [​IMG]



    For iPod Touch and iPhone:


    Easy Way:
    Here is how to play music on your Xbox with an iPhone or iPod Touch (doesn't need a jailbreak):

    This one is pretty simple, all you have to do is download this app:
    This is the app you will use to stream music from your iPod Touch/ iPhone to your Xbox 360, it is called sync:confused:tream.

    iTunes link (click)



    This app is very simplistic design, all you have to do is open the app then go to music sources on your Xbox


    You should see this

    [​IMG]

    Now select syncmusic center and you should see this

    [​IMG]
    Now you can go ahead and play your songs



    More Difficult Way:

    Now we move on to the more difficult devices which include iPod Touch and iPhone. The reason you can't use the first method is because Apple has not released the software development tools needed for Microsoft to allow you to use the USB connection.



    First off, the device will need to be jailbroken and on iOS4 (I get an error on iOS 5 but feel free to try this app on it).



    Step 1: Download the USB Drive package from the source
    Code (Text):
    http://ihacksrepo.com/


    [​IMG]



    Step 2: Set the app as drive + iTunes or drive only and reboot



    Step 3: Create a virtual disk large enough to house your music



    [​IMG]



    Step 4: Connect your iDevice to your computer and add the songs your want onto it



    Step 5: Plug your iDevice into the Xbox 360 and press select music as shown



    [​IMG]



    Step 6: Now select the music source that should be called usb drive or something similar and play your music


    Well hope you enjoyed my tutorial :smile:

    Good tutorial, but if you are jailbroken or normal you can download an app called Air Music.

    It has to be iOS4 so if you get a 4th gen you are out of luck but you could use that app Dare posted and get it with installous.
