    My xbox series X reads xbox 360 games as blurays


    I have an XSX and i have a disc for the game The Orange Box for Xbox 360 which should be backwards compatible. When i put this disc into the Xbox series X it immedieately opens the Blu-Ray app and it says that i have to put the disc into an xbox 360.

    What should i do?

    :)

    Hi,

    Do you have any other Xbox 360 discs to try? If you don't, I suggest you check your console can read DVD discs. To test, just try playing any DVD movie disc (not a Blu-ray disc). If the DVD works fine, then the issue isn't with your console, but rather the disc itself is dirty or damaged.

    If DVD's play fine, check the disc for finger marks and scratches and try cleaning it with a soft non-abrasive cloth.

    If the game is dirty or otherwise damaged, the console won't be able to read the lead track on the disc that tells your console what the disc is, hence why it's opening the Blu-ray/DVD app.

    XBox Game Discs on Series S

    Any external drive wouldnt work

    One it needs to be the same speed as xbox x series

    A dvd usb drive wont read bluray disks

    And at the expense of a bluray reader plus the additional hardware you might as well buy an x series

    Why would you buy something you dont need if you need to read disks

    There is huge difference between x and s

    And S ISNT DESIGNED FOR DISKS

    And the software would refuse it

    3 the s series downloads have lower file sizes since its less capable

    And yes the servera detect this

    So you dont need 4k files

    You do realize you only have a 512gig ssd in the s series right? And thr cpu and gpu arent the same aa the x series because of the limited hardware in the s seriea the downloads are smaller

    If you want disks buy the right product

    Choosing a hardrrive

    Fair enough, a slow internet connection is as good excuse as any.

    Be aware however that while that drive will work on Series X, you won't be able to play Series X games directly from it. Series X games will require faster access and read speeds. My understanding is that the Series X games can be 'backed up' on an external
    drive and then need to copied/moved over to either the internal SSD or the External SSD's that will be available for the machine.

    The Series X will read and play Xbox One games from an external drive though.

    Series x and our digital games

    i think i remember being told or reading that all digital copies of your games are playable on series x and it will also be backwards compatibility to all previous xbox one, 360 and original xbox games

    Xbox Series X

    Xbox series X will be the next console of the Xbox franchise. Like the jump from Xbox 360 to Xbox one. You will be able to play you're Xbox one games on the Series X and the games coming out will be out on Xbox One as Xbox series X for a limited time.
    After a while they will quit making games for Xbox one and focus on Xbox Siries X
