I tried to install my Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 onto my sisters Xbox 360. It successfully installed but when you press on play from console/hard drive it asks you to insert disk. I am not sure if that is only for certain 360 consoles but most probably for all.

No, an Xbox 360 game will not run on an original Xbox.

Installing your game on the xbox 360 means the game on the disc is saved onto your hard-drive, so in theory you could play it without the disc, but obivously that's pretty bad for business so you still need to put the disc in for the game to run.Firstly, it just makes the game faster. Meaning: better loading times, and sometimes better performance (the game runs smoother.Secondly, the xbox 360 is extremely loud. Installing the game means the xbox won't have to spin the disc and fan it and all that technical stuff. So it runs a lot quieter. Honestly, I can't play a game without installing it now because I'm used to a silent xbox.Thirdly, and most importantly, the disc doesn't have to spin, and the fans don't have to work overtime. So you reduce your chances of getting a red ring. I've had my xbox for 3 years now and it's never crashed or had a 'red-ring of death'.So if you keep your xbox in a clean, well-ventilated room, and install your games, then you could save yourself a lot of cash. I know people who get through an xbox yearly.NOTE: Installing games (obviously) takes up memory, so make sure you have enough space on your hard-drive or memory stick...whatever they're called.

The identification file is called the DatIDFl0982 or the DatIDFl0732 Depending on which game you use you can bypass it by installing the game to your 360 and while its installing you eject the disk and swap it for another empty disk, it will then say Installation failed and will say canceling which will then put all the data onto the new disk and will also put one of the Identification file onto the disk. This disk will have the game on it but it will not work on your xbox instead it will come up on your computer as a storage disk and you will be able to manually copy the Identification file onto your computer. This file can now be put onto another disk which may contain a pirated game ( i dont know what your planning to do with the disk) and the pirated game will now work because of the Identification file so you can play copied games... Although im not saying you should do that because its illegal and i have no doubt that you would break the law ;)

Some Xbox game do work, and some dont.

No, absolutely not. However, "regular" xbox games do work on the XBox 360.

The only way that a Ps2 game would work with an Xbox 360 is if you buy an Xbox or Xbox 360 version of that game.

A game bought for an Xbox will always work for an Xbox. Unfortunately, buying an Xbox 360 game will not work for a normal Xbox system. But most stores will give a full refund and/or a swap. Hope this helped.

All regular old XBox games work on the XBox 360

If it is an XBOX 360 game then it will work on any XBOX 360 console.

If u want the xbox game 2 work on the xbox 360, just get the game and place it on top of the xbox360 its that simple 2 put the game ON the xbox360. if u want it 2 work in the xbox360 then i dont know!

It depends on the game. Not all work. If you want an original Xbox game for the Xbox 360, I would suggest the Simpsons road rage. I would also ask or check if there is an Xbox 360 version of the game.

Yes a regular Xbox game will always work on an Xbox 360 (or 360 slim). Note: An Xbox 360 game CANNOT be played on the original Xbox Console.

yes you can you need to for it to work

Yes, it will work. I have an xbox 360 and ! always play normal xbox games on it.

The answer is yes, depending on the game. my old xbox game gta san Andres works on it.

any original xbox game will work on the 360 as long as you have a hard drive

No. A PS3 copy of the game won't work on an Xbox - you will need to buy an Xbox copy of the game.

Call of Duty 4 does work with the Xbox 360. If it does not work on your Xbox, It might be something wrong with your Xbox, or possibly the game disc.

Unfortunately, it does not work on the xbox 360.

You dont need to... It should work already.

Most original Xbox games will work on the Xbox 360. Just put in the game disk in and play.

if you mean will an xbox 360 game work on a xbox 360 elite? the answer is that it will. a xbox 360 elite is just a normal xbox but black with some extras like it is black and has a 120 gb hard drive

It depends what kind of game you choose to play on your Xbox. My X-men game didn't work on my 360 but that is just my one game dat doesnt work

You can find a list of Xbox games which will work on the Xbox 360. If you game isnt on the list, then it will not work.
