There are two potential reasons for this issue-

1) The most likely reason is the disc is damaged or dirty. Take a good look at it then wipe it off with a soft cloth. If there are deep scratches then the disc may be unable to ever be played again. If it still doesn't work after cleaning it I suggest taking it to Gamestop so they can clean it with their machine.

2) If the disc looks just fine then it may be an issue with the XBOX console. The XBOX may have dust inside of it preventing the laser from working. I suggest using a can of compressed air and blowing out the inside of the XBOX to clean the dust out.

If neither solution works then I suggest calling technical support.

How can I run xbox games on my computer


With the new updates to Microsoft, you can now play xbox games on a desktop/laptop with Windows 10 installed.

Windows 10 enables you to be able to play your xbox one games on your pc with a xbox one controller.

You can also play 360 games on the xbox one by connecting both xboxs together with a HDMI cable. This allows you to play ur 360 games on the pc also.

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

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 "

Why cant i play any xbox games on my xbox 360


There could be a few reasons:

1: The game is not able to be played on the xbox 360. Only certain games can be played on the xbox 360. Go to http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/askxbox.aspx and type in "original xbox games". It should pop up with a list of games that can be played on the xbox 360.

2: Your family settings do not allow you to play original xbox games. Go to the control panel and look at the settings.

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.
