Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console

1 Answer

Playing xbox 360 downloaded content offline

I appear to be having some problems playing my downloaded xbox 360 content offline.
My original 360's drive went, and i got a replacement 360 unit.
With my original 360 i was able to play content and games i had downloaded from the market place offline, but with my new unit it doesnt seem to register unless i'm logged in to live.
The data is still showing in the memory, but if i try to play any arcade games offline for example, it only shows that i have the trial version.
Anyone have any solutions to this?

    Sisters' 360 continuously gives "unreadable disk" message for every game she tries. Any ideas on what she could do to fix it or is it something that needs servicing?

    One that microsoft are now saying they can't help with.

    XBOX support are supposed to be able to re-assign console origin for downloads but when i phoned, stated they couldn't.

    I'll pursue this with them through e-mail, but may just have to put up with having to be online for content downloaded so far.

    Exact same situation. New box, old hard drive. I have a lot of downloaded games too and a fickle internet connection. So some night I just can't play what I want to.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games

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.

If you purchased the map pack, you still have to download it. This may take a while, since that particular map pack is 2.4 GB, which takes about 20 minutes to load. When that is done downloading, restart the game. If you don't, the game will play as if you didn't load the map pack. Remember to do that after you download the map pack.

Hope that helps. Good luck!!!

My saved game is saying missing downloadable content and won't let me load my saved game until I download it

You have probably downloaded some DLC (DownLoadable Content) and it might have been deleted, so you have to re-download it to continue playing the game.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb

I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360:

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website: "

All of a sudden when we start Call of Duty world at war it says there is an update for the game. Chose update and it then says that it cannot download the update and signs out of xbox live. You cannot not...

check playing with this disc on any other Xbox 360 connected to live, ideally the disc should not have problem since the problem you are facing could be with saving or downloading of the specific update required to play game online on xbox live which is mostly related to updated playlists.

If it still does not work, try erasing the saves for this particular game from your Xbox 360 HDD in case you are okay to forego the game progress / XP gained for the offline campaign play.
