Hi,
Go to microsofts website.
You need to download a patch-file. it,s a free download, which you can either burn to a cd. and load into the 360.
or download online connected through xbox live.
i,m pretty sure it,s a small xdm file.
if you struggle doing it, mail me here and i,ll send you 1 through the post.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Need to update but problem


Try a different game disc that is fairly new. This usually solves the problem. (I use Halo 4 install disc) Or you can try loading it from a USB. http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/system-updates/system-updates-info has instructions directly from Microsft. If all else fails, call 1-800-4MYXBOX, a rep will guide you through.

Probably because its a pirated game, and you are trying to run it off of a modded xbox. Try disabling the mod updating your mod, and 360. Then try playing the game.

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 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

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.
