Xbox 360: Ripping CD's only way to store music on HDD - CD Freaks.com
The console could recognize and play MP3 songs from USB devices like memory sticks and portable media players, but we couldn't transfer songs over to the HDD. [...] I know when I read about this annoying limitation in the article, I was reminded of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Specifically, when the slightly too clever HAL 9000 computer disobeyed an order and said: "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that." Of course, this sent the crew into full gear, doing what had to be done with the HAL 9000 to regain control of the situation.
the Xbox 360 is like HAL 9000 ! xD
