Re: need help

Only certain Xbox games such as Halo 1 and 2 will play on the Xbox 360, there is a full list on microsft's website somewhere. to play these games your Xbox has to have a hard drive, and it must be on this list.
Sorry to be bearer of bad news if your fav Xbox game wont play, it happened to me when i got the 360
Please rate if helpful

SOURCE: xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!

I would call 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them the problems youre having with what is a relatively new machine.

Xbox realized that the consoles were peppered with problems like this and extended the warranty from one year to three.

Your DVD tray may be misaligned. Call 1-800-4my-xbox to see if your box is under warranty. Something else to consider is if you had the game in the console and moved it with the game inserted. This results in a misaligned disc and when it spins up for loading it scratches perfect circles into the disc.

OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

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.

I have the 360 and a game called starwars/tetris worlds it says i need a update to play how do i update to play it? i dont have xbox live


In this case the first thing you need to make sure is the game is supported on the Xbox 360. If the game came in a actual XBOX 360 game box then you should be OK there. If not you need to check the list at this link.

Next if it is then you will need to get the update off the XBOX 360 website, then save it to you computer. After you do this you can save it to a USB drive or burn it to a disk to get the update on your XBOX 360. After this you will be able to play your game.

Note another option is that you can buy a 1 month game card to XBOX Live to allow you to download the updates you need.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

My xbox dont play games it just plays dvds how do i fix it

1. Make sure your game discs are all clean, free of scratches, etc.

2. Test multiple games to ensure that it isn't isolated to just one or two discs

3. Unplug your 360, wait a few minutes, plug it back in, and attempt it again (full power cycles sometimes help these strange issues.)

4. Ensure you have the latest firmware upgrade (you'll need to connect the 360 to the Internet to download the latest upgrade.)

Also, if your 360 is modified in any way, this could affect your ability to play game discs, depending on the settings and the type of modification.

If above given steps do not work, kindly send yor Xbox 360 to MS support, and do not try to flash your drive at home, it would void your warranty
