Bought a 250gb hard drive to put into new x box slim console to play an original x box game....still will not play or recognize the game (SNK vs CAPCOM) what am I missing??? Do I need a disk to download???

Hi there, not all original Xbox games can be played on the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim, I came across the same problem myself. I have checked the compatible games lists and cannot find the game you mention on any of them so I am presuming that this game unfortunately will not play on the Xbox 360.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

I want to play oddworld on my 360 it is an xbox

This is not the case. Microsoft has not converted all games over from the original xbox, to have the ability to play them on the 360. On the Xbox website there is a list of compatible games that can be use on the 360. Here is the link. I hope this helps.

I can´t play Windows Movie Films on my X-Box 360?!?! Can I Download a codec for this???I have some clips in Windows Media type on a CD. but my X-Box Can´t play that!!! Why???

Most likely there is not a codec available. If your Xbox is connected to the internet it will download the codecs if it can when you try to play the file. If not you can do what I did and download TVersity at This will stream movies from your computer to your laptop if they are on the same network, I use it to watch movies I have on my computer on my tv via my xbox. Anything your computer can play your xbox can play.

How can i play x box games on my 360

Yes you can play xbox games on 360 but most you have to download a patch for the game to play. If you are online with it, then put it in and it will download the patch it needs for that game.

I attached a removable hard drive to the usb port on my xbox 360. i downloaded the video update it told me i needed to watch a movie that was on the hard drive, yet it now says "Can't play this content...

well as the code has suggested the file type is indeed not supported
convert it to avi to play it on your 360
you can do this with dbpower amp
or just search on google for video converters

It means batman is not in a codec the xbox 360 can play, either the video or audio on Batman is unreadable by the xbox 360. I believe the xbox 360 plays divx that use the MP3 codec, otherwise you'll get the message your on about.
The only way I know of getting around this is by converting the video to MP4 file type or wmv, I prefer wmv since that 100% works on the xbox 360 aswell as being able to be uploaded to my ftp so i can watch the videos when not at home. But converting to wmv would be the best option.

Xbox 360 elite, call of duty 4 fault

Hi Jake,
Yhe only thing noticable here, is that the 360 elite has the 60 gig hard-drive instead of the Standard 20 gig, as fitted with the white 360. perhaps you might be able to try a 20 gig hard-drive on the box. May work, worth a shot. i,d also check microsofts site, for any game updates or patches for the game itself.

hope this helps ya buddy.

p.s plenty of people would be willing to trade your elite for a standard white 360. this would be another alternative.

Leave the file on your PC and use TVersity to index and Transcode ALL your videos to your XBOX360 on the fly. No conversion needed. I have copied all my sons DVDs to my PC (he kept messing em up) now I store the originals as backups and play the movies from his xbox with TVersity
