Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Arcade
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 arcade?
There is a perfect way to play your old XBOX games in Xbox 360 games.
you are in luck that you bought ARCADE,if you ve core without harddisk yo cannot play,
so the solution is
you need the FLASH UPDATE as above.
you'll need the hard disc drive accessory plugged into your Xbox 360 to play old Xbox games
if its there we can simply play it.
need to follow these
sign in to Xbox Live. Where do you find the update?
To get the update, all you need is to have your 360 connectedonline and logged into Live. Insert an original Xbox game into the360's disc drive, close it, and the update should begin automatically.Being on Xbox Live is the most hassle-free way to make sure you canplay Xbox 1 games, as the system should automatically update each timesupport for new games come out.
If you are not online with Live. How do you get the update?
You have two options - either order an update disc from Xbox.com(which will be sent by mail and incur a small fee) or, if you haveaccess to an Internet connection and a CD burner, you can download theupdate yourself.To download the update yourself, visit this Xbox support page.The download itself is roughly 2.5MB. Simply unzip the downloaded file,burn it onto a blank CD or DVD (it must be the only file on the disc),and insert it into your 360. The process should begin automatically.

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
