Bought a 250gb hard drive to put into new x box slim console to play an original x box game....still will not play or recognize the game (SNK vs CAPCOM) what am I missing??? Do I need a disk to download???


Hi there, not all original Xbox games can be played on the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim, I came across the same problem myself. I have checked the compatible games lists and cannot find the game you mention on any of them so I am presuming that this game unfortunately will not play on the Xbox 360.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

Contrast issues with a newly updated XBOX 360


I know what has happened to your 360. It happened to mine as well when i was playing GOW2. 
Call M$ and the will replace your 360. I got mine replaced, and there's nothing you can do about it until and unless u wnna void your warranty.

Xbox 360 comes on dashboard pops up but wont go to the game


If you have uploaded the updates, this happens all the time. you must go to "my xbox" option and there will be a disc there. Hit "A" and it will play the disc.

I downloaded the update for it and put it in but nothing happens


Unfortunately not all of the old xbox games are compatible with the xbox 360. Not all of my old games work either. Here is a list from the official site about games which are backwards compatible.

XBOX games on XBOX 360


You must have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive to play original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console.

You can only play approved original Xbox games on Xbox 360. Visit the following Web site to view a current list of approved original Xbox games that you can play on Xbox 360:

You may have to have a broadband internet connection to download the update or the game itself is not compatible. Microsoft did not make it so all Xbox games are compatible with the Xbox 360. Try looking up the games and see if they are playable on the 360.

360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.


You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.
