    Thank you. Yes, the games that won't run on my X-Box are original discs.

  • wirtzpd Mar 05, 2008

    The games say X-Box on them, not X-box 360, but the error message I get says "An X-Box 360 must be attached to play original X-Box games, and I am running them (or not) on an X-Box 360.

  • wirtzpd Mar 05, 2008

    OK, thanks. I'll try updating.

    I have a hard drive. I misquoted the error message. It says: "An X-box 360 hard drive must be attached to play original X-Box games. The hard drive is in there firmly, but I still get the message.

Your Xbox region code has to match the region code on the video games. Figure out your xbox's country of origin and then only buy games that come from that region. If you are trying to play pirated discs and getting that error message, than they obviously were not pirated correctly.

The X-box pro is not backwards compatible, meaning that it won't play original x-box games. Only the X-box 360 ELITE is able to play x-box original games.

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

Alot of people think that when they get this error they will need to get a new DVD drive and that is not the case in alot of cases.

Hi

If you have flashed your xbox 360 with 1.61 firmware, have you got the Wave 4 patch disc, lot of currently released games need this disc to be run first before you run the copied games,you can check on google for the updated list of Wave 4 copy protection enabled games.

If you face problem with all copied game discs, even for older ones like Gears of War 2, Halo 3 etc then you should get the drive checked with the person from whom you have got your Xbox 360 modded

Back up games


There's not a legal way to do this. Send your thank you message to billg@microsoft.com

Do a little googling of "XBOX 360 backup" and you'll find discussions on this topic.
