Only a very few selected xbox games will work on a xbox 360. You need to buy xbox 360 games to work with the xbox 360. Here is a list of xbox games that can work on xbox 360

If you're 360 console is connected online to Xbox Live you can update the backwards compatability list of xbox(1) game's you can play. If you're not on Xbox Live but got access to the internet you can download the needed update at Xbox.com (choose UK or USA etc) Search for support and backwards compatability,choose either to burn to CD or to use a usb stick - either are used in the 360 to update. The update is small about 5mb.

SOURCE: xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!

I would call 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them the problems youre having with what is a relatively new machine.

Xbox realized that the consoles were peppered with problems like this and extended the warranty from one year to three.

SOURCE: 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

Plays dvd but not games

Any more details then that? I am assuming that you are not the original owner of the Xbox 360? you bought it used?

won't be ebale to try and assist you without more information on the Xbox 360. Has it worked for YOU before? Have you been able to play games on it and it suddenly stopped playing games? Has it been modified? Has it been moved around a lot recently?

Please be specific on your history with the Xbox 360 and we can see what you might have as an issue.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd

Hi

By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

Xbox 360 thinks it`s an Xbox and won`t register a 360 game

Hey,

Strange Issue, but I think its a possible solution to it. I would say the drive and/or laser needs to be changed.
