Optional Media Update without live.

I have a 360 console that was banned due to a ridiculous course of events. The console was never modded, but Microsoft thinks otherwise. This is because my friend who has a modded console put his HDD in my Xbox and it was then banned. Awesome!

My Problem -

I use my xbox to steam movies/music to my TV in my living room. Since i cannot connect to XBL (Xbox Live) I cannot watch movies or play music without downloading the Optional Media Update.

Is there anyway to download this update on my computer and transfer it to the console via CD/DVD/USB?

I have no idea what else to do.

Thanks!

Perhaps you could download it on another Xbox, plug the hard drive into a computer, transfer the download to your Xbox's Hard Drive and put that hard drive back into your Xbox

You have to have a jtag'ed xbox 360 for the optional media update to be usable on a box that's not the one on which it was downloaded. in this regard it's a pain in the $$^ and the ps3's media capabilities are better without any 'optional' stuff

Microsoft can be a big pain, especially with xbox 360's. Did you ever attempt to call them, and resolve the problem. There are a few ways that you can unban your xbox 360. But they are intensively hard, and involve flashing your 360's CPU Cache (Not easy) i have moded my 360, but only with hardware mods (Rapidfire, Blue ROL) but i couldn't help you with something like this, there are websites that you could look at.

Yes you can find update on Microsoft website, and two other requirement needed cd/dvd or usb flash drive, if you want to update your xbox vie cd/dvd, so you need to download the file for dvd/cd.

2. for usb flash drive, download a file for usb system & usb flash drive must be fat32 file system otherwise it will not work on xbox 360.
