Question about Microsoft Xbox Console

1 Answer

My Xbox original won't start up games even though it still powers

I can't find a proper solution. I don't know what to try b-cuz everyone says something different. But I need the details of how to get my xbox to read the disks i put in. It powers up fine, but dvd's - cd's- and games won't be read. It gives me the disk read error, but then it says I have to take the game out to continue. I want it to be a cheap alternative and something that doesn't involve me tearing the machine all apart. I want to save for a 720 when it comes out, plus a car so I can't spend to much.

How do i set up the old xbox to get online?


Unfortunately you won't be able to. Xbox has discontinued the original Xbox live and now only does Xbox 360 live. Im sorry about that. I wanted to play some games online too on my original Xbox but I was told they don't keep it up anymore. :(

Im trying to play regular xbox games into the 360 how do i configure ?


Only some games work. There's a list on the xbox web site that tells which ones are backwards compatible. Here's a link to that page below.
Hope this helps!

Cant play supported original xbox games, even with update!!!!!!!!


I'm not sure exactly, the problem could be because you downloaded the update with a burned disc. Sometimes Microsoft catches on to that kind of thing. Even though it says the update was downloaded successfully and is working properly, it may still block the purpose. It could still be blocking the use of original games because of the burned disc you used to download it.

Xbox 360 thinks it`s an Xbox and won`t register a 360 game


Hey,

Strange Issue, but I think its a possible solution to it. I would say the drive and/or laser needs to be changed.

Original xbox games in 360


Dude!?! Get an xbox 360 hard drive!!! You can't play older xbox games on a 360 without one!!! Read your manual!!! It tells you this specifically in the manual, which no one ever reads anymore. Then when you insert that game, xbox prompts you to download the backwards compatibility update (XBOX LIVE NEEDED TO DO THIS!!!) and the rest is FULLY AUTOMATIC! Again, when in doubt, READ THE MANUAL!

A/v cable


Hi,
Sorry to dissapoint you, but they are completely different at the console end. both the same to T/V. either 3 x Phono ( red-white-yellow ) Or 21 Pin Scart.
Don,t buy the 360 lead, it won,t fit.
Whats ironic, is that most of the Original x-boxes were assembled in the Philipines.
Try e-bay, if you can,t get 1.
i,ll ship you one from the U/K.
