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.

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it


You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

Just changed the disc drive on my xbox 360 now it wont play games only dvd can anyone help thanks


the disc drive on the xbox 360 has a key that matches it to the motherboard. If the key isn't there, or is incorrect, the xbox won't read games. If you (hopefully) still have the original drive, you might be able to get someone to help you with jungleflasher to copy the key over. Good luck!

I can not play original xbox games now it said the hard drive must be attached and it is what is the problem?


Just assuming that your hard drive did not come with your Xbox 360? Or if it did then you bought your Xbox 360 used maybe? Below is the reason why some hard drives won't work with BC games. But before you go out and buy a new HDD then go ahead and remove your hard drive from the Xbox 360 and reinsert it to see if that helps. Note: it has to be a HDD not a USB memory for BC gaming.

"Simple. Certain eBay sellers try to make more money by buying 20GB official Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drives for cheap, and then putting larger laptop hard drives into the official 360 hard drive case and then selling them for less than an official drive of the same size would be. Now, technically, these hacked hard drives are the exact same thing as an official one, at least as far as parts go. They will function exactly the same as an official drive. But many of the sellers that sell these drives forget (or might be just plain ignorant about) one important thing - to play backward compatible Xbox games, the hard drives need a special partition for the Xbox 360 to store BC-related data in. If the hard drive doesn't have that partition, you can't play backward compatible games with it."

"So, to answer the question "Why won't original Xbox games work on my Xbox 360" there really is only one answer - Your cheap eBay hard drive might not be as official as you thought and is missing key files that allow for backward compatibility. The solution - Buy official Xbox 360 accessories from established retailers, or if you want to save a few bucks on eBay, make sure you ask the right questions so you know what you're getting."

Plays dvd but not games


Any more details then that? I am assuming that you are not the original owner of the Xbox 360? you bought it used?

won't be ebale to try and assist you without more information on the Xbox 360. Has it worked for YOU before? Have you been able to play games on it and it suddenly stopped playing games? Has it been modified? Has it been moved around a lot recently?

Please be specific on your history with the Xbox 360 and we can see what you might have as an issue.

Xbox 360 won't play new game - screen flickering on the 'press start' screen. plays cd's perfectly and was ok with games till put in new game from Morrisons.


old or new generation model? it might just need a good cleaning with one of those dvd cleaner cds you can buy. I have a game in general "home front" that sounds like my box is gonna blast off.

When a game is inserted into the xbox 360 console it won t play the disc. on screen it says please insert xbox game


I had the same problem with my Xbox a while back. Call Microsoft Xbox support. If they tell you that your warranty is no longer valid just keep hassling them until they hook you up. Worked for me!

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.

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.
