  1. My 360 games are unreadable because of an original Xbox game.


    I was playing an original Xbox game and from time to time was switching from it to an Xbox 360 game. Upon completion of the original Xbox game, I decided to play another 360 game. However, when I put it in the console, the disc is unreadable. Why is this
    happening?

    :)

    backwards compatibility

    Wait, in your tags, it says "Unreadable disk". If the 360 gives an unreadable disk error, it means just that, it can't read the disk.

    If you play an xbox game that is NOT backwards compatible, it will FLAT OUT SAY "THIS ORIGINAL XBOX GAME IS NOT COMPATIBLE". Not "this disk cannot be read".

    Try cleaning the disk. Are there any scratches on it?

    The xbox original wouldn't have broke your drive. It's purely coincidence.

    Anyway have you tried other 360 games as well? and does the xbox original disc still work?

    Game Install...What's the Purpose?

    Installing games on your hard drive improves load times and minimizes game disc access.

    -

    Right from the Xbox 360 support pages on installing games onto the 360.

    -

    Another thing it does that isn't mentioned is that the content is checked to ensure all data is copied and not corrupt or unreadable. Really important if you just bought a new or used game is to install it. Will let you know if there is a problem before
    you get into a game and have it crash or cause some other glitches because a section of the disc is unreadable or corrupt. Be amazing if the 360 could download any portions that are unreadable or corrupt and patch the disc image as long as it passes the basic
    DRM check. Maybe with the Xbox One it will be available.
