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.

Hello d drummond!
First of all you must check if the game you want to play is in this list of compatible games: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-on-other-devices/original-console/play-original-games

After that you must be signed in on xbox live and start the game to download a patch that will allow your xbox 360 to play Xbox games.

Hope this helps and feel free to leave further questions! Have a great day d drummond!

Unfortunately, you're out of luck on this depending on what game you're trying to play. The 360 is not (and never was) 100% backward compatible with the original Xbox, so your best bet is to find a cheap first-gen Xbox to play the older games on. Also, you need to take into account that quite some time ago MS shut down it's multiplayer component for the Xbox, so games like Halo can only be played in single-player mode no matter which console you play them on.

Which version of the xbox 360 do you have? Is it the arcade version? Unless an xbox 360 has an attached hard drive, it won't play xbox games.

Also, you must have an ORIGINAL XBox 360 Hard Drive. If you have replaced it with an off-brand, it may not work.

SOURCE: xbox 360 dvd drive

Rats. Sorry to hear that. You've got a bad DVD drive. If it's under warranty still just get your serial number off the back and call 1-800-4MY-XBOX for repair or replacement.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now: http://llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm

Here's another user's story of how he solved a similar problem:

make suer the disc is very clean.
Most likely you will need to replace the laser on your xbox. It's not strong enough to read the games anymore. You can get a laser from ebay for like $15.

SOURCE: xbox360 wont play games only dvd

You can't just replace the drive with a working drive on the xbox 360. the drive is married to the mainboard with a special key. If you replacing the drive with a drive that's the same brand/model them you can take the logic board from the old drive and put it in the replacement drive. otherwise you will have to extract the key from your old drive and patch in the new drive. not an easy task.

SOURCE: cant get my xbox360 to play xbox games

This is a pretty easy one to fix if you aren't too scared to open the 360 up, otherwise you will have to send to Microsoft.

The problem is that the laser is either dying out, is dirty, or is not getting enough power.

so try to fix it using these steps...

- first open the 360 and pull out the dvd drive and open it up too.

- clean everything out good with compressed air, and q-tips dipped in alcohol.

- now you need to adjust the power going to the laser. Sometimes you may have to try multiple settings before getting it just right. Just keep adjusting the resistance lower and lower until it works.

- if you tried multiple settings and still get the errors, then either get a replacement drive, or a new laser for it. Click Here for how to properly install the new laser.

hope this helps ; )

How do i play origanal xbox games on my xbox 360


You need to download an update for any xbox original off of xbox live in order to play.

I dont now how to get my xbox360 to play xbox games


The XBOX360 requires a update file for each XBOX game to play on it. Not all games are supported. If your XBOX360 is connected to the internet it will automatically check for an update when a XBOX game is inserted. If your XBOX360 is not connected to the internet then you can burn a DVD or CD rom from a computer with the update files and insert the disc into the XBOX360 and update the files. Or you can load then to a USB jump drive and plug the jump drive to the USB port on the XBOX360 and update from that. The details are available from here http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/console/systemupdates.htm

And remember not all XBOX games will play on the XBOX360. Only ones with updated files. So if it does not play after the file update then it is not supported. Microsoft updates these files quarterly so check back once a month for more updates.
