On the new Xbox 360 how do you know if the old Xbox games will play on the new Xbox 360.?

Is there a way to tell on the old games any codes to look for or something.

    First, you need a HDD for you Xbox 360.

    Second, there are two ways to find out if your game is backward compatible

    One, insert the game in question into your Xbox 360. If it works, it will download a patch and begin playing (Assuming you have internet connectivity, if you don't, you should be able to download it from xbox.com)

    Two, look on the Xbox.com website, there is a list there of the backwards compatible games

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardcompatibil...

    Good Luck

    As soon as you put the game in it will tell you. If you go to www.xbox.com you can find a list of backwards compatible games. If you are signed up to xbox live and the game is backwards compatible, it will automatically download the patch. Click on the link below and it will take you to the list that was updated December 2006.
