    The strangest thing. My OG Xbox One will play Blu-ray discs just fine. I've watched plenty of Blu-ray movies on it plus I've played many of my Xbox One games on it too (witch are on Blu-ray discs too). Unfortunately when it comes to DVDs, the One won't play them. Usually I wouldn't give a thought about it because I no longer have any DVDs and have no need to watch a DVD*movie but the fact is that I cant access any of my Xbox 360 games either because those are on DVDs. Kind of strange and I'm hoping I can get a fix because I have allot of 360 games on discs that I can't play because of this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    TL;DR: Xbox One will play media on Blu-ray discs (Xbox One games/Movies) but won't even read DVDs (Xbox 360 games) witch means I can't play any BC games.

    XBOX One only plays Blueray disks. You can copy your regular to DVDs to a file a play on Media player.

    360 games are not compatible. However, MS has converted many 360 games already. Downside is you have to buy them.

    Looking deeper into your problem, it looks like I was wrong about having to buy converted 360 games. I was confused because I previously I had to buy games again that my kids played on Wii.

    I can confirm that 360 games on the list will play (after installing to the HDD). *Although I've never tried either disc format yet, I'm guessing the limitation is an OS decoder for DVD playback or the lack of an app. I've never*heard of a physical*Blu-Ray drive that cannot play DVD, but I may be wrong. On Windows 10, you have to download an app or software to play*disc movies, or pay $15*extra to unlock*Windows Media*Player :(
