Simple questions about Minecraft (Xbox version) for a new player

Hi, I am new to Minecraft (xbox version) and have some simple questions.

Are there any way to know where to find diamond and gold? I cannot find them.

Are there any loadable maps that have villages/castles/carts etc already built?

How do you make a minecart run fast with red stone?
Thanks

Basically Killn answered the minecart questions. You will need powered rail for all of his solutions. When unpowered it acts as a braking system, but when you have it powered it boosts minecarts along. Powered rail requires gold to make unlike normal rail that requires iron ingots. Powered rail is powered by a touching redstone torch as well. Gold and Diamond are found on MUCH lower levels in the world. Usually more common in the bottom 16 layers or so of the world. At least that is my own experiences and seems to be the consensus among most people I have played with.  They are probably both about equally rare. I honestly seem to find more diamond than I do gold. As for loadable maps there is no such thing available at this time. I don't believe there are any plans for such a thing either.

>no but you are most likely to find them in caves near the bottom of the map (also near redstone)

Are there any loadable maps that have villages/castles/carts etc already built?

>only the tutorial map for now but after the update you wil be able to get more seeds.

Hi Noshy!

Welcome to the world of digging !

Ok there are no loadable maps that have villages or anythign already created, BUT, as the game recieves updates to the newest version of Minecraft (XBLA version currently few versions behind PC) there will be villages, NPC's, dungeons, missions, More enemies, bosses and a TON of other New stuff (Textures, more Things to build with etc etc).

However, I do know a little trick to finding Diamonds....

Diamonds like to Live near bedrock.  12 blocks up off bedrock in fact.  if you dig a shaft to bedrock, and then count 12 blocks up, you can begin to hollow out a room within this 12 block height where there will be a high chance of encountering diamonds.  Remember 12 blocks from bedrock! not above ! using this method, and making massive hollowed out rooms will increase your chances of finding diamonds im sure :)
