I would like to limit what my son can play on using his Xbox 360. I have a lot of 15 and 18 games, as I am a real 40 year old gamer, and he plays on them (so I think) when he shouldn't! I kept them hidden,...


Hello! Good to see the old generation of gamers, breeding a young :)

The 360 has some rather neat parental controls. It's called family settings. Here is the details of it, how to set it, etc.

Good luck!

And remember, you were a kid too once.

I just replaced the disc drive in my xbox 360 and now it won't read games but will play a dvd. I see people are told to flash the drive. can someone tell me how to do it please? when i put in a game it...


if you have still got your old drive then you need to take the security key off that and put it onto the new drive.

it is fairly complicated and requires special hardware inside the pc such as a certain sata card etc.

it would be impossible to explain how to do it over the net but if you are in the UK and as long as you have the old drive still i will do this for you for a special rate seeing as your a fixya member. Instead of £50 i will do this for £20 with free return delivery. i hope the site admin dont mind as all im trying to do is help another member from having a dead console.

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

Can't reboot dell 4100 dimension desktop


First put the hdd installation cd into the cd drive and try to boot. This should install the hdd driver as well as start formatting the new hdd. After the drive is formatted take out the hdd cd & insert the Windows installation cd into the drive. Boot. Windows should start installing on your new drive. After Windows is installed check the Dell support site for updated drivers for your system. Install drivers as needed. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled to the new drive. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.

Dell Dimension 5150 DVD Players Will not play


maybe the carbons of the DVD reader are getting too old and it doesn't rotate as fast as how it was burned so it cannot read the movies..
buying a new one will fix your problem..
the problems of nano technology is that things are too small to be fixed by humans...

maybe you could play those games because they were old, and since most of the stuff its installed in your computer it doesn't need much from the DVD unit..
