Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Open Question

How do I install a patch onto xbox 360? I am not connected to the internet with the console. I need to install the patch for Far Cry 2 which I have downloaded onto my pc but now I need to know how to get it onto the console. It's for my non-techie hubby & we are totally new to the gaming world so don't know the jargon yet. He's getting very frustrated as the game crashes all the time so... Please help!!

SOURCE: xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!

I would call 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them the problems youre having with what is a relatively new machine.

Xbox realized that the consoles were peppered with problems like this and extended the warranty from one year to three.

Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating.  They did not extend the warranty to any other issues.  DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.  
You can try a factory reset of the console...

Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.

Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.

Press the following key combination

Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X

This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.

If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty.  If not they will repair it for usually 99.00

SOURCE: my xbox 360 game keep getting scratched when i play

Your DVD tray may be misaligned. Call 1-800-4my-xbox to see if your box is under warranty. Something else to consider is if you had the game in the console and moved it with the game inserted. This results in a misaligned disc and when it spins up for loading it scratches perfect circles into the disc.

SOURCE: 360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.

You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

When i'm playing Far cry 2 and its reloading it sticks and wont play no matter what i do ie; i've cleaned disc and xbox 360. This isnt the first far cry 2 game that this as happened too.the first...


This is probably a result that a small part of the disk is damaged and the reloding code might have been broken. To test this try to play for as long as you can without reloading to see if it keeps happening. If the disk is damaged no cleaning will fix it.

My xbox 360 wont play a xbox game even though it is on a compatible list. It is saying that the hard drive may be disconnected. It is playing 360 games fine. Any advise would be great


To play regular Xbox games on the 360, you MUST have an internet connection when you start up the game, to download the compatibility patch from XBL. Once you have the patch you won't need the internet to play the game from then on.
