I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it

You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

How do i set up the old xbox to get online?

Unfortunately you won't be able to. Xbox has discontinued the original Xbox live and now only does Xbox 360 live. Im sorry about that. I wanted to play some games online too on my original Xbox but I was told they don't keep it up anymore. :(

Hi, I had a problem with my xbox, it wouldn't play games. I bought a new drive, I have a benq. I fitted the old mother board into the new drive but it would still not play. I then fitted the new mother...

Your Xbox 360 lens are most likely dirty. And your 360 probably has something like dust stopping it from scanning your games. I suggest blowing into your DVD drive carefully and gently. If it still doesn't work I recommend sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for a new one if your under warranty. If you don't have a warranty you could clean you lens by your self. But opening your 360 to clean the lens could make it worse so do it at your own risk.

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

Get A New DVD drive.
I,d suggest That Your Laser is,nt kicking up the required Voltage To read The dual-Layers ?
X-Box games Are single Layer DVD. 360s Are Dual Layer ( DL )
Also try An Original Or Over 5 gig DVD ( Thats most likely to Be Dual Layer )
