How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

My xbox 360 wont play a xbox game even though it is on a compatible list. It is saying that the hard drive may be disconnected. It is playing 360 games fine. Any advise would be great


To play regular Xbox games on the 360, you MUST have an internet connection when you start up the game, to download the compatibility patch from XBL. Once you have the patch you won't need the internet to play the game from then on.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd


Hi

By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

When I go to play an xbox game on my xbox360 it says the game couldn't start. Please download again.


In order to play xbox games on your 360 you need to have xbox live. You must download the patch for each game you have in order for it to work on your 360. As long as you still have xbox live I would go and redownload the patch and it may take care of your problem. If you do not have xbox live I don't believe there is anything you can do unfortunately.

How can i play x box games on my 360


Yes you can play xbox games on 360 but most you have to download a patch for the game to play. If you are online with it, then put it in and it will download the patch it needs for that game.

How do you convert xbox games so they can olay onthe xbox 360


You can only get a certain amount of games to play on your 360 from the old xbox(trust me this aggravates me too)If you have Xbox live it automatically downloads a patch so that most games can be played on 360. For list of games it can play on 360 go here http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardcompatibilitygameslist.htm

Hope this helps..

Compatibility with old XBOX


Word is that backward compatibility to games of the old console is excellent, but this applies mostly to XBOX hits. Games like Halo 1 & 2, Knight of the Old Republic 1,2 , Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and a handful of others are in that list. Updates to the rest of the games will gradually come out, and will be distributed through XBOX Live, so that whoever owns a copy of the game could play it in the new console. We hope that eventually all the games will be patched to the 360, but you got to wait and see.
