Xbox 360 - Backward Compatibility & AVI update

Hello All,

I'm trying to run Xbox games on the Xbox 360 and I am aware that there is an update for this HERE

According to the instructions, the USB stick needs to be FAT32 and to copy/paste the files downloaded on the USB from the link above.

But when I insert the USB it won't ask me to install the update or whatever. I've tried turining it on/off with the usb plugged in as well and no luck so far.

Apparently the same update lets you watch AVIs on the Xbox as well.

Please let me know what i'm doing wrong. How come when I insert the USB the Xbox doesn't ask me to update?

To play avi's you have to log online everytime you want to play. Unless you have a jtagged xbox. Not sure about the xbox games.

game content purchased online also turns into demos or lack of being able to play them at all if you're not signed into Xbox Live...

thats not entirely accurate. the AVI update is like buying DLC, it will register to the consolse you first download it on, as well as your gamertag.

If its regged to a different console you can either:

1) deleted it off the console. make a new gamertag. redownload it. as that gamertag has never downloaded it, it will also register to that console.

2) use microsoft's tool for moving content to a new console and rereg it it to a new console.

either way you can use the AVI update off line... you just have to treat it like DLC.

Try the usb port in the back

This didn't work :facepalm: So is buying Live the only way to fix these problems?

Only if you're not playing on your "home" console. Any content registered to a given console will still function offline.
Rock it.
