    USB backward compatibility


    When trying to download a xbox 360 game on my xbox one and I could not because it was on a usb is there any way to play the game with out a physical copy on the xbox one or is there a way for the xbox one to read games not just videos photos and music

    No. But USB 3.0 is backwards compatible so it can still work in a 2.0 slot.

    USB backward compatibility

    To explain a bit why that won't work:

    The Xbox One doesn't understand the "language" in which the Xbox 360 games are stored on disc or USB. The disc for physical copies is just a "proof of purchase" for the Xbox One, and the actual code for running the game on the Xbox One is downloaded from
    the Xbox Marketplace in a "translated" language the Xbox One can understand.

    If you installed a game from disc on an USB drive, it's missing the "proof of purchase" license the disc would provide.

    If it were a digital download game, it would show up under Ready to Install in your account's Games and Apps, and you could simply download it for free, as the "proof of purchase" for a digital download game is stored in your account.

    However without a disc, there is no proof of purchase, and you can't install the game on the Xbox One.

    For game storage you need at least 256 gigs or the xbox one wont read it

    Also should be noted an install from an xbox 360 wont work regardless as you still need the BC patch which still has to be downloaded and the game still has to be installed unless you have the disc itself

    If you already bought it digitally just redownload it unless you dont live in your account region in which case only by downloading it from your account region can you do it

    As of today, everything is digital, so the USB will not work.

    If you own a digital xbox 360 game that is compatible with backwards compatibility, it should appear in "Ready to Install" on Games and App
