The pro and premium motherboards take the 20 and 60gig HDD they can not handle a 120gig. Have him try to play a game with out any hard drive attached and see if it works. If it works have him put on his original drive with the console on then turn it off. Unplug the power cord and then turn it back on. Good luck,

My xbox 360 arcade system will not allow me to play origonal xbox games even with an xbox 360 hard drive attached


Okay, the Xbox 360 isn't reverse compatable, meaning you can't play regular xbox 360 games on it. The only version that is reverse compatable is the Xbox 360 Elite. SOrry :(

The xbox 360 elites keeps on saying open tray when trying to play


1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

XBOX 360 Elite won't play disc; says "reading" then "open tray".


If the console has never been opened to change the dvd drive then eather your laser lens or one of the 2 motors in the drive needs to be changed. 90% of the time its the laser lens. You cant just use any laser for the xbox 360. There are 3 different drives. Toshiba, BenQ, Samsung, so you have to see what drive model you have before you try to order one yourself. I repair these often with 99% success.

Installing new "used" 20 MB Hard drive


there are only a few games for the 360 that require a hard drive in the first place (but without one you wont be able to save your game).
if you have one, the only possibility i can think of is maybe the hard drive is full, in which case you just need to delete a few things off of it. most games dont need very much space.

note: I'm not sure what you mean by new games and regular games. so if this doesn't help, make another post clarifying and ill see what i can do.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
