Well, maybe not that slow. Not sure if this is the proper forum, but I have a rather unique problem. After using the Xbox Soundtrack Editor to transfer WMA music files, I set the files up to play in the game (ie, NHL 2K6), and the songs are playing a bit slower in pitch. Yes, they are playing, but its kinda annoying that is slower than the original on my PC. I used Filezilla FTP to go into E/TDATA/fffe0000/music, then copied a few music files onto my computer, and the files all play fine. No slow pitch, no lag. So, the problem is the Xbox. I'm not sure if this is a common problem, but has this ever happened to anyone? But if anyone has any info regarding this I'd truly appreciate it. I'll bump this in a few days if I get no replies, as I know closer to the weekend may not be the best time to ask for help.

Cheers

It could be the xbox can't handle the load of the game and music at the same time, or the CD was ripped at a different frequency than what the game wants.

Not exactly, but your post at the end where you mention frequency got me thinking, what version of WMP did I use for mp3 to wma conversion. I used 9.1, when its really 8.0 that works on an Xbox. A few of the 9.1 wma files I FTP’ed worked, but most of them played slow. I FTP’ed a bunch of version 8 wma files, set them up in the game, and all worked fine. So, I have found the source of my problem. Still, the Xbox Soundtrack Editor won’t completely delete a file, you’ll need to access the drives by FTP and delete them manually.

Thanks to afruff23 for the post and everyone here at Xbox Scene.
