    why does my 360 tell me xbox guide is not available while original xbox game is running?

    When the Xbox Original game starts, it disables the guide. That is why the Xbox 360 tells you it is unavailable. Every Xbox 360 console does this when an Original Xbox game is started.

    No you can only do it o. The xbox 360 games or higher

    There was no guide or dashboard on the xbox original console EVER

    You can go to xbox one home menu thats it

    But by design the xbox original games never had a guide as it never existed

    It was a plug and play system of ciurse back then you could only pit a dvd disk if you had the dvd remite accessory

    Even multiplayer games had to have their own ingame menus to support wifi or aystem link leta juat say not all game menus were universal back then even the ps2 never had a universal dashboard

    Well that is strange, because my Xbox 360 has always disabled the guide when playing an Xbox original game. So why yours wasn't doing that, I do not know.

    Question about the 360 GTA San Andreas

    GTA San Andreas, when it was released, was not released for the xbox 360 but the generation before. Like Owenkiller said, it does not have achievements and like IKing said, you will be signed out of xbox live.

    You will not have access to the xbox guide or anything like that either, when you try to open it, it just says that it isn't available. For future reference, all these things are the same with any game that was originally on the original xbox and then compatible
    on the 360.
