  1. To play Xbox Originals on your Xbox 360 console you need the following:

    1. A hard drive (20GB will suffice)

    2. Your console must have the lastest operating system update (i.e. the November 19 2008, ‘New Xbox Experience’) from here:

  2. if its a microsoft HDD then yes.an external hard drive is read only, thus you are unable to save gamefiles, etc.so buy a hard drive from microsoft and yes you can play old xbox games.

  3. Yes you will be able to play some games if you get the HD be aware though that it does not mean ALL xbox games. A list of games that can be play can be found here: [url is not allowed].
