Hi meandtheboys,

Only certain original Xbox games are backwards compatible. You can find the list of supported games here.

 

Also, ensure that you are using an official Xbox Hard Drive (not a third party one), as there is a partition on the official drives that contains some emulation data required to play original Xbox games.

I have deleted the upgrade and format'd the storage space, then downloaded the upgrade again. I put in the games telling me that i need to upgrade still?

It's one of 2 things then.

1) Make sure the games you're trying to play are on this list - en.wikipedia.org/.../List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360  If they're not on that list, they won't work.

2) What kind of hard drive are you using? Did it come with your console or was it purchase separately?

Hey there meandtheboys9,

Smwutches and Karachi are correct, even if the games are on the compatibility list, unless you are sure you're using an official Microsoft hard drive original Xbox games will not work on an Xbox 360 console.
