Why can't I play an Xbox Original?

I have Conflict: Desert Storm and Conflict: Desert Storm 2 Back to Baghdad. Why does only the first one work? It's basically the same game, why isn't there an update or something to make the sequel playable on my 360??? Is it a simple update? Does Xbox not have the rights anymore or something??? I just want to be able to play both games on my 360. Is that too much to ask?

Desert Storm 2 was never made backward compatible. Because the 360 uses an emulator to run old Xbox games rather than having the guts of the old console inside it (ala the PS2) compatibility is spotty at best. Support for it was dropped years ago and there hasn't been an update since so you're stuck unless SCi (the game's publisher) decide they want to re-release it on XBLA.
