To play a game in the original xbox you just put the disc in and close the tray. They load automatically. For more information on how to use your newly obtained xbox original here is the user manual in PDF form you will need a pdf reader to open it such as adobe reader. click here for original xbox user manual. Im wondering since you say you just got a game from a local shop, Make sure it is an original xbox game. If you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. thanks, Midwest-tek

Bought an Original XBox used. Worked great for about 2 days--played KOTOR 1. On the 3rd day, it froze and read that there was a problem reading the disc. Annoyed that the XBox: -originally played...


Unfortunately this is high likely a disc player issue and it will be cheaper for you to purchase a new (old) system then it would be for you to go through the hassle of repair.

As you have already specified you are aware of the pot tweaking and that is the route that might lead you to a solution if you are to try and do it yourself. Another option though also costing money is to purchase just the disc player from ebay and change it out completely. Again, I find Xbox 360 cheap enough at pawn shops or yard sales that you could easliy find a cheap one.

I have given all my original xbox systems to family members already otherwise I would have gaven you one of mind.

Good luck.

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games


Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

Xbox 360 won't play old xbox games?


If your console is hooked up to Xboxlive and has a Hard Drive connected to it you will automatically be prompted to update upon insertion of the original Xbox title. Your console will restart when it's ready and you should be able to play.

*If you do not have a Hard drive you cannot play original Xbox titles.* The original Xbox Memory unit will not work in Xbox360 and the original Xbox games have no access to the Xbox360 memory units.

If you have a Hard Drive but your Xbox360 is not hooked up to the internet you can either order a disc for free from Microsoft by going Here

or burn the needed information onto a disc by going Here

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.
