Original Xbox Won't Let Me Copy Games

When I go into the XBOX dash board and click on memory, then click on "XBOX HARD DISK," I can see my saved game. But when I click further on the game, the only option I am given is the delete option. Isn't there a way to copy a game to a memory unit from your hard disk? I have tried this with a controller hooked up that has a memory unit in it and also with a separate memory unit device, and I can see those devices hanging off the console but can't figure out how to copy a game from the hard disk to them. The game is Psychonauts and I haven't figured out out to save it to the memory unit while playing becuase it automatically saves to the hard disk even when a memory unit is plugged into my controller. I feel like such a techno ******....help!

When you find the game you want to copy highlight it and push right on the controller and highlight a saved game then select it and you will be given the option to copy it.

I can not play original xbox games now it said the hard drive must be attached and it is what is the problem?


Just assuming that your hard drive did not come with your Xbox 360? Or if it did then you bought your Xbox 360 used maybe? Below is the reason why some hard drives won't work with BC games. But before you go out and buy a new HDD then go ahead and remove your hard drive from the Xbox 360 and reinsert it to see if that helps. Note: it has to be a HDD not a USB memory for BC gaming.

"Simple. Certain eBay sellers try to make more money by buying 20GB official Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drives for cheap, and then putting larger laptop hard drives into the official 360 hard drive case and then selling them for less than an official drive of the same size would be. Now, technically, these hacked hard drives are the exact same thing as an official one, at least as far as parts go. They will function exactly the same as an official drive. But many of the sellers that sell these drives forget (or might be just plain ignorant about) one important thing - to play backward compatible Xbox games, the hard drives need a special partition for the Xbox 360 to store BC-related data in. If the hard drive doesn't have that partition, you can't play backward compatible games with it."

"So, to answer the question "Why won't original Xbox games work on my Xbox 360" there really is only one answer - Your cheap eBay hard drive might not be as official as you thought and is missing key files that allow for backward compatibility. The solution - Buy official Xbox 360 accessories from established retailers, or if you want to save a few bucks on eBay, make sure you ask the right questions so you know what you're getting."

My x box wont read any discs


Greetings,

Please go through the Website link mentioned below.

Note 1 If a saved game file is corrupted, it can produce a disc error message in that game, particularly when the game starts. You can resolve this issue by deleting all saved game files for the affected game from the Xbox hard disk. This method is effective approximately twenty-five percent of the time. If you experience this disc error message with more than two games, this procedure will likely not resolve the issue.

Note 2 Do not use laser lens cleaners, or similar products. Microsoft has not determined the effectiveness of these products or the affect they may have on the Xbox system. Microsoft cannot promote or recommend any type of laser lens cleaner for use with the Xbox system.
----------------------------------
1. Clean the disc and examine the disc for flaws or scratches
Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers.
2. Clean the disc with a soft, clean cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards.
3. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.
4. After you clean the disc, examine the disc for any scratches or defects. If you find any defects that are not caused by typical wear and tear, return the disc to the retailer if it still under warranty.
---------------------
Copy and delete any saved games from your hard disk
Note To copy saved games, you must have an Xbox Memory Unit (MU). You must copy saved games to a MU before you delete them.
1. Start your Xbox console with no disc in the disc tray. The Xbox Dashboard appears.
2. On the Main Menu screen, press the directional pad (D-pad) up or down to select Memory, and then press the A button.
3. On the Memory screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
4. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you want, and then press the D-pad left or right to select the saved game you want to copy.
5. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Copy, and then press the A button.
6. On the Copy To screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the memory unit you want to copy to, and then press the A button.
7.Press the B button to return to the games list on the Xbox Hard Disk screen.
8. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you just copied a saved game from, and then press the A button.
9. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Delete, and then press the A button. You receive the following message:

Are you sure you want to permanently delete this saved game?
10. Press the D-pad left or right to select Yes.
11. Repeat these steps for each saved game on the Xbox hard disk. If you have many saved games but you can remember when you started to receive the disc error message, you can just delete the saved game files that you created after that time.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

How do i save games and movies to my hard drive.I was told I kud but wen i try to play it after downloading it tells me to insert game disc


you need a mod chip in your xbox to be able to save and play games you can still copy files and stuff to a hard drive without one but its basically the same as saving to your xbox you will still need the disk, you can only get them installed at gaming or electronics stores that do mod chips there arnt alot around you could do it yourself but you have to solder a chip to the circuit board which is more trouble than its worth, also with mod chips if you go on xbox live with a mod chip in your xbox it will block you from going online but that is with xbox 360s im not sure with the old ones

Any game i play disk arcade or demos xbox freezes


Try the following:
  1. Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc. Examine the disc for any visible signs of damage.
  2. Verify whether the Xbox console clock is set correctly.
    • Turn on the Xbox console without a disc in the drive.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Main Menu, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Settings, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Clock, and then press A.
    You can see the date and time from this screen. Correct the date and time as neccessary.

  3. Try to play the game again. If this does not work, you can try to clear the game cache on the Xbox hard disk. If you have a Xbox Memory Unit available, copy the game cache for this game from the Xbox hard disk to a memory unit:
    1. Insert a memory unit into a controller connected to your Xbox console.
    2. Open the disc tray and remove any disc, if present.
    3. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    4. Select Memory from the main Xbox Dashboard, and then press the A button.
    5. Select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
    6. Locate and select the game you want to back up in the list of games.
    7. Select the appropriate save game icon. The Save game icons are located to the right of the game icon. Each save game is identified with a name, date, time, and size.
    8. Press the A button to display the Copy/Delete menu for the save game.

      Note: If Copy is not available, you have not chosen a save game file.
    9. Select Save, and then press the A button.
    10. Press the A button again to save to the appropriate memory unit.
    11. As soon as the copy is complete, press the B button to return to the list of save games.
    12. Repeat these steps as needed to back up your other saved games for this game.
    If you do not have a memory unit, deleting the game cache removes your progress in the game, high scores, and other information. To find the game cache, follow these steps:
    1. Open the disc tray and remove the any disk, if present.
    2. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    3. Select the Memory option from the Dashboard.
    4. Select the Xbox Hard Disk.
    5. Locate and select the game in the list of games.
  4. Select the large game icon to the left of the list and press the A button.
  5. Press the Abutton again to delete the game cache file.
    Note: Delete should be the only available option. If Copy is available, you have chosen a game save file and not the game cache file. Press the B button to return to the list, and then select the leftmost icon.
  6. Select Yes to permanently delete the game cache, and then press the A button.
  7. Confirm that the icon is no longer listed, and then re-start your Xbox console.
  8. Insert the game disc, and then either load your latest saved game from the memory unit, or play the game from the beginning.

You must have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive to play original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console.

You can only play approved original Xbox games on Xbox 360. Visit the following Web site to view a current list of approved original Xbox games that you can play on Xbox 360:

Zone code


    1. Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:
    2. NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
    • NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
    • PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand
    1. If this symptom occurs with only one or two discs, search the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://support.microsoft.com/search/?adv=1 (http://support.microsoft.com/search/?adv=1) ) for the specific game title or titles. If you find a known problem, follow the instructions in that article.
    2. If the game disc worked in the past, the disc might now be dirty or damaged. Clean or replace the disc to see if this resolves the problem.
    3. If this behavior occurs with only one or two discs and no known problem exists, return the disc or discs to the retail store where you made the purchase.
    4. Turn off and unplug your console, remove the Xbox Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and any attached memory units (MUs), and then reconnect your console. Try the disc again. If this procedure seems to resolve the problem, turn off and disconnect your console, reattach the HDD and any MUs, and then delete any saved games for the game with which you had problems.. Note If you can do this, move the saved games to a different memory unit.
    5. If you have this problem only with original Xbox games (games that are designed for original Xbox, not Xbox 360), the original Xbox backward compatibility update may be missing from the HDD. To resolve this problem, download and burn a copy of the backward compatibility update to a disc, and then install the update to your console
