My xbox 360 works fine playing the games that are demos

My xbox 360 works fine playing the games that are demo's but when I go to insert a game disc the power adaptor shuts off the xbox. The power adaptor that displays a green light slowly turns orange to a red when it shuts down.

There might be a short.
other then that i might just think that your power adapter is failing and you need another one.

Can i try it online?

There is a demo version of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 available on Xbox Live, but I don't think the demo allows you to play the online part. The game itself does have online capabilities and a large selection of characters you can play with that were previously unavailable.
Having played it myself, I would highly recommend it if you enjoyed previous iterations of the Naruto games.

Disc is inserted but game does not acknowledge or read disc

there are two major ways to which this can arise.
the first being that it could be coming from the disc in the sense that your xbox 360 might be a pal game and then you are trying to use a ntsc disc on it. to find out more about this, you can look in the front cover of your demo disc that came with the console and see if it is the same region(ntsc or pal) as the disc you are tying to play.
also, it could be that your disc is probably scratched or hitched beyond what the console can read.

secondly, your console might have a faulty disc drive and as a result cannot recognize the disc. here is what you do, try to play an ordinary mp3 or DVD disc on it and see if that works then you can confirm where the fault is coming from. on the other hand, you can also obtain your demo disc and test it and then if it refuses to work, you would know that the fault is coming from the drive.
after cross-checking and knowing the source of the problem, you can then send it to a repairer or if you can fix it at home yourself with parts bought online or at a shop. get back to me if you require more information.

Can't play blue ray district 9 on ps3 , won't read disc

The solution is simple. The God of War 3 demo is a dual disc. When initially inserted, the ps3 will automatically go to the game tab. Scroll over to the video tab and go up. District 9 will play on your ps3! It will say "District 9 Blu-Ray!"

Demo disc problem

well i think you problem is that the update was corrupted, the problem is that you can't get to the console screen, you should try getting another hard drive from a friend and see if it can get the update or at least try to get into the console screen from there format your hard drive, it will erase everything but at least you get your console working again. Hope it works :-)
