You can play *most* XBOX games on your XBOX 360. A full compatibility list may be found here, and Microsoft typically updates it with system updates:

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 installed homefront onto my hard drive to make my xbox 360 quieter but it doesnt say 'play from hard drive' and so i just select 'play game' and then it makes the same amount of noise....


You don't -play- the game from the harddrive, and nor does it make less noise if you install it.

When you install a game to your harddrive, it normally makes the game quicker to load, not for older games, I think Homefront is a "newer" game.

The benefits of installing the game is that your optical reader is less in use, that the game saves and loads quicklier and is normally better performance in-game.

When I play Black ops it loads but never goes past the black screen after you press play game. I have an Xbox 360 white and I'm wondering is that the problem. When i took it to my uncles 360 it worked...


I have never heard this issue before. You probably have a lager issue then what can be resolved here and might face future issue in the future. Is this the only game you are having issues with?

Seeing that you mentioned you have purchased a hard drive then I would recommend you install the game to your hard drive and try play after that. This will resolve any issues possably of your disk drive possably getting hung up during gameplay.

follow these instructions to get your game installed on your hard drive:

Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If the game starts, exit the game, and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press Y on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.

    A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.
Notes
  • Installing an Xbox 360 game might take several minutes.
  • Multidisc game? Install each disc to your hard drive.

How can I make my Xbox games load faster? One of my friends always loads way before us.


You can make games load faster on the Xbox 360 by installing it to your hard drive. Loading times are reduced because reading from pre-installed content on a hard drive is way faster than reading from a DVD disc. Installing is easy. Go to the dashboard, and scroll to where you would normally start the game from. But instead of pressing A to play the game, press Y on it and you should have the option to install it.

It seems the xbox 360 wont read the disc... every time i go to play a game alls it says is open tray... and the game never loads..


I have had the same issue and it turned out to be my hard drive. If you take the hard drive off the xbox, it will read the disk right? Then replace hard drive and the problem comes back? I stopped using the hard drive and I now use the little save cards that go into the front of the xbox. hope this helps.

Can not play disc since i down loaded xbox live?


I don't think that is an xbox live related problem. to check if is an xbox 360 problem or the xbox live, or maybe the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and try to play a game like this. if it doesn't play is the xbox 360 since all the info for xbox live will be in the hard drive.

If you have a newer arcade xbox 360 they come with an internal memory, so the xbox live info could be there. If that's the case delete the gamer tag that has the xbox live capabilities and try it again.

You can always recover a gamer tag from any xbox.

Note: you don't really download anything when you connect to xbox live, it's just like connecting to the internet. All they need is your info to be able to connect.

My xbox loads games but then it freezes on games that run on a disc


Hi, im not sure but are you playing the games of the xbox 360 Hard Drive?

If orignal discs seem to freeze in the drive then this could be a problem with the disc drive. You may want to get it replaced or if under warrenty get it replaced...

if the problem happens with games that run from your hard drive as well this could be a hardware problem.

Freezing during oblivian


Oblivion uses the Xbox 360 hard drive to cache game data and in some cases the info stored on the hard drive can get fragmented, slowing down the game's performance. Bethesda has already found out a way to fix the issue. Here is the official word: Oblivion uses the Xbox 360 hard drive extensively to cache (copy and reuse) game data. This is done to optimize all loading the game does. It has been found in rare cases on some Xbox 360s that the cached data can get overly fragmented. This exhibits itself by the game taking a long time to load anything from menus, dialogue, sounds, objects, levels, and more. To solve this problem, reset your Xbox, and hold down the A button as the game is booting up. If any button is held while Oblivion is loading, it will clear its hard drive cache, and create a new one. Once you see the ?Bethesda Softworks? logo video, the game is already loaded, and the cache should have been cleared. Note, this does not effect your game in any way other than loading. You will not lose any saved data.
