Well i think you problem is that the update was corrupted, the problem is that you can't get to the console screen, you should try getting another hard drive from a friend and see if it can get the update or at least try to get into the console screen from there format your hard drive, it will erase everything but at least you get your console working again. Hope it works :-)

Well only certain xbox games can be supported by the xbox 360 there is a list on the xbox live website that shows you what you can play. The update only works for games that are supported by the xbox 360 console.

All of a sudden when we start Call of Duty world at war it says there is an update for the game. Chose update and it then says that it cannot download the update and signs out of xbox live. You cannot not...

check playing with this disc on any other Xbox 360 connected to live, ideally the disc should not have problem since the problem you are facing could be with saving or downloading of the specific update required to play game online on xbox live which is mostly related to updated playlists.

If it still does not work, try erasing the saves for this particular game from your Xbox 360 HDD in case you are okay to forego the game progress / XP gained for the offline campaign play.

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

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console

The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?
