Bought 3 original Xbox games the other day, one works ok, the others don't (nothing to do with the condition of the discs or anything, all perfect).
When you put one of the other two in, it says: 'Would you like to update now, an update is required to run this game' . I update it, the xbox restarts, i run the game then it says: 'Sorry, this game is not compatible, an update may be availbale from Xbox Live. If not, please visit www.xbox.com/games.' So, i don't understand, they should work right? Xbox games are supposed to work on the 360. I don't get it. I visited their website and it has nothing to do with it on it. I went through it a few times, and it's the same each time.

Cheers for the help (if anyone does haha :teeth:)

take a look at this to mate http://www.joystiq.com/2005/11/14/xbox-games-that-wont-play-on-the-xbox-360/
it dosnt explain how you'll be able to play them just basically explains why !!
basically xbox 360s would only play around 200+ xbox 360 games in the 1st place since then microsoft have been updating xbox 360 software to make them play more of the original xbox games !! and they obviously havn't done this with all the games yet !!

found this sumwere 2
the xbox 360 can only play a few xbox games out of the the box.but microsoft is always sending updates so more xbox games can play on the 360. there are hundreds of xbox games playable on 360 now. unless your 360 is most likely an earlier model.
