Re: lost 360 arcade games

Id you bought the games you can re-download them over again for free. If its happening because you got a new 360 hard drive and all then recover your old gamertag and then re-download them.

XBOX 360 Arcade, Game Driver San Francisco unable to load or play from the disc. Loads of memory aailable, Cleared cache. Only having prblems with this game. All other games work fine ?

It could be that it is a pre-owned game, I have had problems with pre-owned games, and have bought a new game that has not been used. Also I have just recently bought that game and had to do and update to the xbox 360 when trying to play that game, you should have got a message to update the system when trying to start the game.

My xbox 360 died and i bought a 2nd hand one. I purchased many arcade games from xbox live and they are saved on the memory pack. i have transfered this over and no it keeps telling me to unlock the games!...

You have to recover your gamertag for these arcade games to be played again, it's like an anti - piracy feature of the Xbox 360System not to allow data transfer wihtout prior notice. On your new Xbox 360 System:

• press the xbox guide button
• if your are signed in to your profile, you have to sign out first
• after signing out, press the Xbox guide button again and select recover gamertag
• on the next page, confirm on the prompt and follow the onscreen prompt to recover your gamertag

This should allow you to manage and play your downloaded Xbox Live Arcade Games.

My system shuts down in the middle of my game, but only when I press the (RT) button when playing Geometry Wars, and the (Y) button when playing Fable 2.

if you have the reciept you may be able to send it into microsoft and get it replaced/fixed. or it may be the games.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360

Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
