If you rip music CDs onto the XBox's hard-drive with an average songs length being 4:20 seconds, you will be able to fit 2,000 songs; and that leavs some space for saved games even!

The Xbox does not use MP3, it uses WMA.

Well, think about it. Microsoft developed the WMA format and it's less lossy than MP3. Why would they use MP3???

Besides, 2 seconds at google produced this:

'less lossy' is correct, actally!

MP3 and WMA are both lossy compression formats, but WMA is less lossy than MP3...it loses less. He hee. :p

If you read the official MS FAQ of XBOX on the XBOX.COM site, it says in there that they use WMA. But that you cannot rip a disc with a bunch of WMA files on it to the Xbox HDD (which I think is stupid because we could get alot more songs WAY faster to the Xbox if they let us do this...).
