Buy a new laser specifically for the brand of dvd drive, like phillips, hitachi, ect... only, the laser, if you purchase the whole dvd drive, then you have to flash it and all...too complicated. just the laser assembly and reinstall and enjoy.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

I can not play original xbox games now it said the hard drive must be attached and it is what is the problem?


Just assuming that your hard drive did not come with your Xbox 360? Or if it did then you bought your Xbox 360 used maybe? Below is the reason why some hard drives won't work with BC games. But before you go out and buy a new HDD then go ahead and remove your hard drive from the Xbox 360 and reinsert it to see if that helps. Note: it has to be a HDD not a USB memory for BC gaming.

"Simple. Certain eBay sellers try to make more money by buying 20GB official Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drives for cheap, and then putting larger laptop hard drives into the official 360 hard drive case and then selling them for less than an official drive of the same size would be. Now, technically, these hacked hard drives are the exact same thing as an official one, at least as far as parts go. They will function exactly the same as an official drive. But many of the sellers that sell these drives forget (or might be just plain ignorant about) one important thing - to play backward compatible Xbox games, the hard drives need a special partition for the Xbox 360 to store BC-related data in. If the hard drive doesn't have that partition, you can't play backward compatible games with it."

"So, to answer the question "Why won't original Xbox games work on my Xbox 360" there really is only one answer - Your cheap eBay hard drive might not be as official as you thought and is missing key files that allow for backward compatibility. The solution - Buy official Xbox 360 accessories from established retailers, or if you want to save a few bucks on eBay, make sure you ask the right questions so you know what you're getting."

I bought A 60GB HARD DRIVE FOR MY XBOX 360 SLIM AND I DONT KNOW HOW IT WORKS. How do i install it?


X-Box 360 hard drives are deceptively easy to install. Simply press down the button on the flat end of the drive (Far away from the Hand in the image). Lift up and pull away. it should come loose without much force. To install your new Hard Drive. to the same thing backwards. Slide the drive backwards into where it sits. press the connection into the opening. and it should click in. syisiphis.jpg

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.

Orignial xbox games dont work on xbox 360


i dont know if you have a memory pack or if your just using the internal memory of the 360. but if you dont have a memory pack attached to the side then alot of times the original xbox games wont work. If you have any errors codes that could be helpful as well.
