Your Xbox 360 gaming system can also be used as a stereo for your iPod--connecting the two devices using the iPod's USB cable. Using the Xbox 360's USB port, any device that uses USB can connect to the system and access the USB drive's files. While the Xbox 360 can play MP3, WAV and WMA files, it needs a special codec file to play DRM-free (Digital Rights Management) AAC files. This codec can be downloaded for free from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
