I too am having the same problem but i don't even get the first tick.
Its not my Anti virus Firewall issue.
It is a modem/router port firewall issue.

Hello, My Vista Ultimate box will not recognize the Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender. I do see the Xbox 360 in my network devices, but i do not see the install option. Additionally, it will not find the Xbox through the Extnder wizard in Media Center. I have network discovery, file sharing and media sharing enabled.

However, i am able to UPNP share via Windows Media Player. Please help.

Hi all,

First of all thank you for looking at my thread.

I am using a Belkin F5D7230C router and I keep getting a extender not found message when I try to add one through the windows media centre setup.

On the xbox, I get a connected status on the network, internet and xbox live but it fails under the PC connection and windows media center.

I have the xbox connected to the back of the router via a ethernet cable as well as my two personal PC's.

I am using widows vista home edition, I have enabled UPNP on my router and I can see two computers and the xbox on the network which are plugged onto the router, network discovery is on and I have pinged my xbox and i get no reply's.

Other than this I'm stuck, hoping someone can help!

I'm running Vista Home Premium 32-bit and I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 as a media center extender. I followed the instructions to the letter, but the Media Center software tells me it can't find the extender. UPnP is enabled, all the Media Center services in services.msc are enabled, and I'm only using my router as a firewall.

I spent an hour with one of the Xbox support people, and he couldn't figure it out. I know my computer sees my Xbox since the 360 shows up on the network map in the Network and Sharing Center. I've opened all the ports I'm supposed to. When I test the media connection from the 360, it fails at "PC selected".

Anyone know how I can make it work?

This is my first post, so i'd like to start off by saying hello I'm reallying liking the information on this forums so far.

Anyway down to bidness..

I recently had an issue with my xbox 360 extender after disabling one of the media center extender services in vista x64 ultimate. After trying trying to connect to the media center service i got this error:
Connection Failed
The Xbox 360 cannot connect to the Media Center based PC. Make sure the Media Center based PC is turned on and connected to the network. If you continue to see this error, check Media Center Extender Help on your Media Center based PC.

Did a little digging and found this MS KB which resolved my problem. Hope it is of some use to you guys.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.  This is a retail copy.  I had previously set up Windows Media Center and successfully set up my Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender. After a long hiatus of using Windows Media Center, I went to watch a movie in my media library through my Xbox 360.  It would appear to initially connect and then show the Windows Media Center loading screen and say "Contacting..."  After about 30 seconds, it would display an error asking me to make sure my Windows Media Center PC is turned on (it is).  I ran the Windows Media Center network test in the Xbox 360 and it tested fine. I attempted to delete the Media Center Extender in WMC and set it up again, but it always fails with an error "An error was encountered while configuring your computer for use with this Extender" at the part where it says "Configuring your Extender". I looked in the Event Viewer under the Media Center section and found event ID 543: Log Name:      Media Center Source:        Microsoft-Windows-Media Center Extender Date:          3/3/2010 10:13:20 PM Event ID:      543 Task Category: Configuration Level:         Error Keywords:      User:          WILL7\swsander Computer:   ...

I have been tearing my hair out for 2 days now trying to figure this out.

All I want to do is connect my xbox 360 in my living room to my xbox through Media Center and watch some movies on my computer on my living room TV.

But it simply is not working. I get the error "Cannot Set up Extender" every single time i input the code into my computer that my xbox gave me.

But, my dad's computer (windows 7 ultimate x86, connected to the network with ethernet JUST LIKE ME) works perfectly fine and connects instantly. And so does my netbook with the same OS but on wifi

I have been doing everything that google has been telling me through my search results. I have so far narrowed it down to a problem with my computer.

One problem I've been noticing is when I go on my windows firewall and enable programs, Media Extenders is always unchecked! I check it off on private and public and then try connecting again, it doesnt work, and then it gets unchecked again! I have also tried turning off my firewall and uninstalling Kaspersky from my computer. No help.

So, does anyone have any insight?

A:Cannot connect to Media Center Extender (Xbox 360)

I did a google search and came up with this...See if it helps...If not and you would like to look for other possible solutions, go to Google and type in "cannot setup extender"...

You tried to set up your Xbox 360 console as a Media Center Extender. However, the Setup program did not start, so you cannot install the Media Center Extender for Xbox 360.

Note When you run the Setup program, your computer may experience a spike in the CPU usage because a process called DVCSetup.exe is using a high percentage of the CPU capacity.

To have us fix this problem for you, go to the "Fix it for me" section. If you’d rather fix this problem yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.

I can set it to "automatic start", and then re-start the service, but as soon as I go through the Extender Setup, and it fails, the service is disabled again. 3 different Event logs r listed below.

Good day,

I currently have a pretty nice setup using my xbox360 as a media center extender -- I download movies to my computer in the office and through the home network I play them on my den's TV through the 360 (using the computer as the decoder).

Here is my issue: when I first got this computer about a year ago I made my 150G Raptor the C: drive and I put all my media files on my 1TB drive. Made perfect sense to have the fast HD for OS and applications and put media files on the large HD. Unfortunately when I did this, the Xbox could only look in the c:\users\mike\video folder to find my videos so all my movies on the 1TB D: drive were unaccessible.

Since that was an issue, I reinstalled Vista on the 1TB HD making that my C: drive and haven't had problems since. I'm about to do some computer maintenance anyway and would love to go back to my original set up with the Raptor holding my OS, does anybody know if MS has fixed this issue, or am I stuck searching for videos on the C:\users\mike\videos folder?


A:Xbox 360 media extender looking for video files

Hi, on your original setup did you try relocating your user directory?

Right click on the Videos folder and click on the location tab this will allow you to redirect to the large drive.

on my own setup I have all my user folders on a separate partition and point the folders there so for example c:\users\username\downloads actually points to D:\downloads

vista uses a system of junction points for other system type directories which can all be relocated if required - the user folders are the only ones where it is a simple thing to do though

hope this helps

I have an xbox 360 that I use as a media center extender and a vista laptop. I have tried using a straight ethernet cord (both normal and a crossover) and can connect fine but everything seems to time out after a a few minutes of recorded high definition shows being streamed. I get a screen saying how there is no signal, etc. (The show is actually recorded fine. I know this because I can finish out the rest of the show just on my laptop). I have also tried hooking everything up using a normal ethernet cable going to a hub, and another ethernet going to the 360. I have internet connection sharing so I can download demos, get on live, etc, through this setup but again when i go into media center sharing everything seems to slow down. Right now I couldnt even begin to watch a show..after a few moments on it it just wouldn't respond. How do I fix this? I've read people suggesting to turn the network card onto half-duplex mode but I'm unaware how to do this. Do I simply need to purchase a router or is there any other option for fixing this?

hi there....i am trying to connect my xbox 360 as an extender. i get all the way through the setup and it fails at the last step. i have gone into my firewall and the media extender is ticked to allow. i have also manually set up rules to allow all the ports i found on the microsoft site to be allowed. lastly, i tried the microsoft fix it tool on the microsoft support site. i have run out of ideas. the xbox is definitely on the same network as me, it can see my laptop and also my iomega iconnect when i go into setting and network connections. it tests positively when i test the network connection, but fails when i test the media centre connection.

i have gone through the setup 3 times now (i.e. reset the connection and put in another 8 digit code to set up) but still no luck.

hopefully someone else knows how to fix this? maybe im doing something small wrong and keep overlooking it?

thanks heaps, beck.

A:Cannot connect to Media Center Extender on Xbox 360 (windows 7)

I am having the same problems. None of the solutions I have found anywhere have worked. I can setup the extender on a laptop running Vista using the same router and wireless network. It worked first try. I still cannot setup the extender on desktop running Windows 7 64 bit. Have been able to setup desktop computer and Xbox 360 to work together using PLAYON, so I know they have to see each other on the network. This is very frustrating. It seems like it should be so easy but it is not. Have been trying for several weeks.

I'm seriously very frustrated with this issue I'm having at the moment.

All I wanted to do was stream an .mkv file to my tv from my computer... Which I managed to do successfully. I installed the "Windows Media Center Extender" and all of that stuff to get it working with my Xbox 360... Which all worked out fine.

Ever since then, however, I have been getting told by my computer that "You don't have correct permissions to access the file location" for every file in my "Pictures" folder in "My Documents".

I am the only user on this PC, and I am the administrator as well. When I click on "properties" on any file in my "Pictures" folder, and then "Security", the only two "Group or User Names" are "Account Unknown S-1-5-21" and "WMPNetworkSvc". I don't even see Administrator!

Why would media extender want to strip my entire PC of all user rights on the administrator account, and what can I do to completely reverse this mess? I've completely removed the "media extender" and even tried a system restore, all to no avail. This is so frustrating.

Can anyone tell me exactly how I can give the administrator account on my computer FULL access to EVERYTHING on the entire computer easily?

A:User permissions headaches after installing WMC Extender for Xbox 360

Hi Axmann,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

First, Vista is quite different from XP. You can't really give the Administrator Account access to EVERYTHING on the PC any more. Removing Extender won't help because the removal/uninstall process does not know how to restore the original permissions (as that information was not saved and thus the changes cannot be undone). System Restore doesn't work because it does not affect data files (intentionally). There's no way to return to the way things were at this point without doing so manually - and if you intend to use Media Center and the Extender properly, you probably do not want to make changes to those files (getting permission is one thing - actually using it to alter things is quite another).

Some folders are actually not real folders but junction points - Windows Vista Junction Points and shouldn't be touched by anyone but a true professional who knows exactly what he/she is doing - and over 99% of people don't fit that description (not even me). Some folders contain system files which even Administrators shouldn't touch without risking damage to the system (again, without the proper knowledge). This was done intentionally and the safeguards are pretty strong so only someone VERY familiar with permissions and ownership can override the restrictions (and sometimes only by making somewhat drastic and unsafe global changes).

In this case, the changes were made because controls for access to these files (and their l... Read more

First off, I've spent a week searching for a solution to this so if I've missed something obvious I apologize.

My xbox has been connected as a media center extender to this computer and router combination for several months now. The router is a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH. Earlier this week the media center extender was having trouble playing back video. After a restart of the computer the extender was no longer connected.

When I try to add a new extender I get the message "Cannot add extender". Microsoft says to enable upnp and multicast. Check. Reflashed firmware to dd-wrt. No luck. Flash back to buffalo firmware. No luck. Try an old Linksys WRT54GL I have lying around. No Luck.

The event logger has this error: "Media Center Extender Setup failed as the Extender was detected on the network but the UPnP search for the Extender failed (timed out after 20000ms)." Event ID: 538

Now I've done everything I could find about enabling network discovery, allowing anything to access media and such. Network and sharing is set pretty much wide open. I've also tried switching between home and work networks.

With that said, I decided to check and see what updates have been installed. It turns out that an update was applied on the day I started having problems. It says it cannot be uninstalled. Description of the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 installation software feature update

I've got Vista Premium Media Center connected to my XBOX. From the Media Center program library display on the PC, I can see and run all of the default installed programs and games (Adobe, Chess Titans, Freecell, Solaitaire, hearts, MCEbrowser, etc).

However on the XBOX the program library only shows two Icons that can be run (Adobe and MCEbrowser). Yet when editing the Settings under "Edit Program Library" on the Xbox I can see the entire list programs shown on the PC and they are all Enabled (ie, the check mark is on). But only two of the checked items actually show up in the Program Library display.

Anyone know how to correct this problem so I can run Chess and the other default games from the Xbox?

you may have the codecs on the desktop but not the extender, the extender is the device playing the files, not your desktop, all your desktop is doing is streaming it to the extender. to fix this, you will need to find software to decode the files and play them streamed on the fly, i used to use this software to play every type of file on my 360, before the update to play avi files came out, and it still works, give it time to decode the files first and you will be pleasantly surprised.

I am in dyer need of some help. I just had a Verizon technician come in and fix my DSL since it was out. The modem was bad which was a Westell 6100, and was replaced with a Westell A90 750015-07. Now before all I did was plug in my eternet chord, to the xbox and there I was online. Now I did that and receive this NAT Error. I have done just about every tutorial on google, with no avail. And have also called Verizon and flipped out on them. They give me new hardware with a configuration that is not allowing me to access the internet.

So far what I have discovered is that I have to open ports. Please if someone posts that was no help. I opened 5 ports, and still nothing. I kind of need a detailed explanation.
What I've done so far:
- Go to ; Login ; Enable UPnP ; Tried setting DMZ Host to Enable ; Foward Ports Manually (53,80,88,1863,3074) ; Choose Xbox Live option from Port Fowarding Menu which only has two ports opened 53/3074) ; Reset Modem.

Still nothing. Please help I'm very frustrated. Verizon wants me to sign up for a package of $15 per/month for 10 months, and if I decide to cancel its $60 or a one time fee of $40. I am not doing either one. Thanks anyone that takes the time to read my problem, and attemp to help me.

A:Making an External HDD backwards compatible for Xbox games on an XBox 360

360 isn't backwards compatible with Xbox games. Since you have digital copies of the game, we can't be sure you actually own a legit copy. So, we can't help you sorry.

But, you can use this to format external drive for your 360.

So all awesome games of windows store have xbox one requirement, can i play it without xbox?

A:Can i play Xbox one labeled games on windows store without xbox?

Where does it say XBOX ONE is actually required to play the game? I see games with XBOX branding but no mention of actually having to have an XBOX to play them? I own an XBOX ONE, it has its own APP/Game store separate from the Store you see on a PC. If the App or Game installs it should be playable? Try one of the free ones first.

A:Solved: error code E 68 on xbox 360

Since I don't own an xbox360, and have never worked on one, my opinion doesn't hold much weight, but I'd have to say it's more of a personal choice.

If the unit is under warranty, then I would send it in (personally I wouldn't mind the wait, but then I don't have an upset son that I'm trying to please).

If it's out of warranty and you are positive that the problem is the hdd, then from what I've read it's not too hard to put a new drive in.

I have seen various fixes for this across the net, I do not want to trap the fans with a paper clip this sounds like a tempoary fix and certainly not common practise by somebody who wants to fix something properly, which other methods are there to repair this error and does anyone have a link to a good tutorial for doing so?

at the moment I understand this error appears from overheating, what I do not understand is how to clear the fault.

If I remove the heatsink and place some thermal paste / clear out the insides and power up again, will this error will still exist?

thanks in advance.

Modified Xbox Consoles Banned From Xbox Live
(November 11 & 12, 2009)

In an attempt to combat piracy, Microsoft is permanently banning modified Xbox consoles from accessing Xbox Live. The ban also applies to gamers who have played games downloaded in violation of copyright laws. The ban will affect between 600,000 and one million players.

Users can recover their online profiles if they purchase another console. The plan raises concerns because it is the console rather than the player that is banned, so the people who purchase the devices second hand could find themselves unable to access Xbox live.

Microsoft bans up to 1 million Xbox Live users - Games -

hello, i hope someone can help me as i have spent countless hours browsing the web and different forums for an answer, so i am finally posting somewhere hoping someone can help me directly.

i have a laptop connected to my neighbors xfinity wifi hotspot, using my uncles login information. i have a steady 4 bar connection and am able to access the internet, the connection is not the problem. i have an ethernet cable connecting my xbox and laptop and i am using Internet Connection Sharing to get access to xbox live, this works however i am losing connection ALOT and it is very frustrating trying to play multiplayer with my friends. i am guessing that ICS is not as reliable as Bridging the two connections.

i can successfully create the bridge and can still access the internet on the laptop, but cannot connect to xbox live. while running the test to connect i can get it to connect to the network by entering the information manualy, but then it fails to connect to the internet due to 'the dns servers cannot resolve xbox live server names'

please help and i will be happy to provide more information if needed.

Hello there. I hope I have posted this message in the right area. This morning I fired up my pc to find an error greeting me. It was that windows was missing a configuration file. I rebooted a couple of times then it came back up.

Once it did tho, it went through reloading all my hardware. Everything was fine so I thought. I then realized there was no sound. Xp is showing the Realtek onboard sound card there, indicating under Audio Devices, Properties that "This device is working properly" and "Driver is enabled but has not been started". However, under the main Volume tab it shows "No Audio Device".

They are not trying to connect to YOUR Xbox but to Xbox online service to keep and retrieve game specific data.

All Xbox Games on Windows 8 and Windows RT will have Xbox achievements, and many will also take advantage of other Xbox features, including leaderboards, multiplayer modes, connecting with friends and more.

So after trying to fix it for 4 months, I still have had no luck. My router is a Linksys BEFW11S4 V4. I see no option to turn on UPNP. If anyone could please help me with this......... that would be awesome.

Thanks all!

EDIT: I forgot to say this also happens with Windows Live. Singing into that while my brother is on the Xbox still disconnects us.

A:BSOD playing with my Xbox 360 Controller, error 0x00000010D

Hiya and welcome to SevenForums!
Please post in the BSOD section but this time it's ok.

BugCheck 10D, {5, 0, 1024, fffffa8005cdd640}

Probably caused by : Wdf01000.sys ( Wdf01000!imp_WdfSpinLockAcquire+47 )
Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r.
Install the latest updates from Windows Update.

Do the exact same steps for chkdsk /r but instead of typing in sfc /scannow type chkdsk /r.

Do you use Motioninjoy to emulate your Xbox 360 controller?

Hello all,

Relatively new here, so bear with me please. Today I was going to move my gamer profile from my XBOX onto a USB, and after that, I tried loading it onto my computer, and it said:

"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Pretty sure it is a driver problem, but I've searched all over google for my same problem, and returned nothing.

Thanks in advance, Mav

I'm so tired of this error that I could I throw my computer down the window. So the thing is I'm trying to share my mobile connection from my computer to my xbox (which has worked before without any problems) but now when I click on properties on my mobile connection on the share tab to check the "allow sharing" box this error: 0x80004005 along with "undefined error" comes up.

Which seems unsolvable, think I've turned google inside out trying to find an solution. I've only found guys that got the exact same problem, but doesn't get any helping answers.

Sorry for my English, computer terms are a bit tricky to translate from Swedish.

P.S to avoid any unnecessary discussion about how I could want to share mobile connection to the xbox when it's only going to lag, it will not, it works like a dream when it chooses to work..

Best regards

A:Trying to share mobile connection to xbox, error 0x80004005

Check your connection box/modem, restart it, see if that works, if not, then check your xbox connection and your phone connection. If it still dosen't work, then i would consider asking a professional

Hi i bought a COMPAQ pc, windows XP desktop in 2003 at a local Best Buy. I was creating a second user account for the system when it froze and shut down. Upon restart, the loading Windows XP black load screen that shows up right after power returns froze and a window came up saying system configuration error. I am currently 20 miles from my house ,and on a different computer obviously, but the i can remember that the error tells me that if problem is not fixed please call the number in my computer manual. I would LOVE to avoid waiting on the phone please help !~~!! please..My only solution i could think of was using the system restore disk but i do not even know if the boot up goes far enough for the PC to read the disk. Please help and thank you for your time.

Hi and welcome. See if you can start in safe mode. For a system this old, I doubt you'll get anywhere calling the number in the computer manual anyway.

My Father-in-Law brought over the computer we gave him for Christmas and said it was not working. I started it up and got this message "your system has detected a configuration error. Please report this error to customer care...blah blah" I tried a system recovery but it had no effect. I tried clearing the cmos and that had no effect either. I tried using the recovery cd's that I made for it and got a message saying the cd's were not for the correct model?!?!?! What is going on here?

I recently booted up my Gateway notebook only to find the "blue screen of death"

I rebooted and it came up to a windows boot manager screen which says windows failed to start..insert installation disc and click repair to fix...blah blah...i'm sure you know the story...

My question is, I booted the Vista disc and when I click repair it doesn't even find the C: drive...when I try and run the BCD fix from the command prompt screen, it says it found 0 Windows installations...would this indicate a faulty hard drive?? If so, I dont mind replacing the drive, I just wanna make sure this is the issue before I spend the money to replace it...

Much thanks for any help anyone can offer!

A:Boot Configuration Data Error

I'm not sure what BCD fix you tried, but see if it is this one and if not, try this one.

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps: (you need a Vista Installation Disk to do this)

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.

Note If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again. By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt. To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:
 bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
 c:
 cd boot
 attrib bcd -s -h -r
 ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

See if that works.

If you don't have the disk (or that didn't work), try EasyBCD and see if that helps resolve the problem.

If that doesn't work, you probably have some type of hardware problem - but it's hard to tell. It may be as simple as the hard drive cable got disconnected a... Read more
