  • Level   1

I get a message that says: (This original xbox game is not supported on your xbox 360 console. An update to support this game may be available. For more info,go to www.xbox.com/games.) I went to the site downloaded the newest update and installed it on my xbox 360. I have a 20 GB hard drive that I bought brand new from game stop. I still get the message. what can I do to fix this problem?

    First of all get a bigger hard drive. I have a 60 which is perfectly fine.  I have over 140 games saved on it. Second some games are simply not supported on 360. You have to look at the game and/or find a list via the internet and find out which games are "backwards compatible"

    Only certain games form the original Xbox console can be played on the new Xbox 360.

    Sorry for that problem.
