I don't know if you have to Xbox or the PC version, but I'll give instructions to make a copy of the song.
To do it the easy way, you need an adapter (I can't remember what it's called) the convert the audio adapters of your xbox to a standard headphone
or microphone jack that can fit into your computer. You can probably get it a RadioShack, just tell them what you're looking for and they'll help
you. If you don't want to spend money, you can do it with a vcr, but you'll need an audio cable like the one that comes with your video camera. If
you don't have one of these, the dollar store sells them. Anyways, connect your xbox to one of the line in ports, and connect the audio cable to the
line out. Plug the other end of the audio cable into the microphone port on your computer. Now, open Windows Movie Maker, and click on Narrate
Timeline. Start playing the music from your xbox, and watch the volume meter. Adjust the volume so that the meter is just touching the top (this is
perfect sound). When you're ready, start recording! This recording will maintain bass, stereo, etc.
This is easier. Start your game and open Movie Maker. Click Narrate timeline as usual, and now look under the record button for an input settings
menu. This should allow you to choose where you want Movie Maker to pick up the audio sound. You can choose between Microphone, Mono, Stereo, and many
others. Choose stereo. Start your game and choose the song you want. Press Alt-Tab to minimize MVP 2004 and go back to Movie Maker. Press record, and
click MVP Baseball 2004 on the taskbar to bring it back up. Wait until your song is done and then stop it. Since the recording will not be perfect, go
back to movie maker and drag the new wav file onto the timeline. Edit it so that you cut out the blank parts. Click File, Publish Movie. Save it as
WMV, and you're set! Now, if you do not see Stereo as an option in the menu, it probably means your sound card does not support it. In this case,
you're going to need a cable that can plug into your audio port and the other end into your microphone port. Again, the RadioShack guys should be
able to point you in the right direction. Plug both ends into the proper ports, and record as I described above. You're done!
Now, I'm sure somebody is going to bring up the issue about this being illegal. I personally am not sure about the legality of this. You could argue
that since you own the game, which has the song in it, you should be allowed to make a backup copy for yourself. It is true that you are allowed to
make one backup of any media, but whether that applies here, I can't guarantee it. Just make sure you know what you're doing. As long as you keep it
only for yourself and don't email it to a friend, put it on their iPod, etc, you should be okay.
Hope all this helps!
PS: If you're still playing MVP 2004, you should download MVP Baseball 2008, the total conversion mod I am working on. It will be available for FREE
