Hi all,

I am trying to connect my xbox 360 to windows media centre (windows 7) and keep getting a configuration error.

After I checked the event logs I kept on getting this:

I would really appreciate if anyone can tell me what this means.

1. Are you seeting it up correctly:
Connect Your Xbox 360 Console to Windows Media Center | Xbox Support

2. Try Solution form Microsoft:
Error: Session Terminated (when connecting an Xbox 360 console to a computer running Windows Media Center)

3. Go to your device manager and scroll to ide ata/atapi contollers. Go to the one your drive is on, primary, secondary etc. It is usually Secondary. Right click it and click properties. Go to advanced settings and change every transfer mode option to PIO Only. This should fix it.

4. (Not sure it's your problem but check it out:)
Media Center Extender Setup with Xbox 360 - MediaCenter

5. Delete the extender from the configuration and retry connecting. I'm assuming that you've rebooted the computer prior to setting up the connection. I'm also assuming that you have the latest update from from Xbox Live when you did the initial configuration.

Tell us how it went.
