I thought you couldn't play music through your ipod?

I plugged mine in to charge and checked and it listed all the music I have on my Ipod. Did they change this?

The 360 sees it as an external drive when it's connected by wired connection.

Checked too. Still only shows pictures. Was excited & quickly disappointed.

Weird. What kind of Ipod do you guys have? Mine is a Nano.

Those are limited to just 4GB right? That could be a formatting thing, if the larger drives aren't done in FAT32 they won't show up in the 360, just like any other external device.

No. Mine holds 8GB. It is a second or third generation Nano (its the gen before the camera gen).

To get to the music, I hit the guide button, scroll over to "Media", scroll down to "Select Music", select "Ipod" (or whatever you named it in iTunes. Mine is [My Name]'s Ipod), and go from there to album, or artist, etc.

I think the Xbox doesn't pick up music from iPhones and iPod touches.

The touches have a different memory than the rest so you can't get music off it, I has to be something other than a touch or phone.

It won't budge.

Nano 7th gen 16GB. I know I used a non apple/sony mp3 player a few years back, that worked fine via 360.
