Microsoft wont allow xbox360 accessories to be compatible with its old xbox model. Microsoft makes money this way. so when you buy the new stuff, most of the time you always have to buy the other stuff that is just as new. the xbox360 OS (Operating System) is different from the old Xbox OS. Thats also why Xbox360 cant play the original Xbox games. This way Microsoft can keep heading in the direction they are aiming for. Its like they say, "you cant teach an old dog new tricks."
Well only certain xbox games can be supported by the xbox 360 there is a list on the xbox live website that shows you what you can play. The update only works for games that are supported by the xbox 360 console.
Not all Xbox games are compatible with the new Xbox 360 system. Most of the time if you buy your games from Game Stop or other game stores the bar code sticker will have a (BC) in it which means the game is backwards compatible with the new Xbox 360 console. If the bar code sticker does not have the (BC) it will not play in the 360 console.
Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)
The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than
the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an
old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but
if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.
