Xbox Originals on Xbox 360?

If you play an original Xbox game from the disc on Xbox 360, the Xbox Guide is unavailable. Is it available when you play an Xbox Original you've downloaded from Xbox Live?

Update:

Splittrain, does this mean you can use Windows Live Messenger while playing an Xbox Original?

    Try the following:

    About the downloading, copy and backup service: There are serveral sites providing such download services. They are very excellent on the contents, not only Complete big XBox 360 games like Metroid, Super-Mario and Guitar Heroes etc. But also many movies, XBox 360 tv shows, music and videos much more!!!

    All you need is to join one of those sites to download so many resources. So you can download all those media as you wish!

    And some sites can provide simple software help you to burn the ISO Games into DVDs, it is very easy and fast. After the instructions by them, you can go ahead to play those games you burned onto your XBox 360.

    Maybe a good review site to those download sites might help you very much on judging which is one is the best for you:

    I am pretty sure you can access the guide feature with xbox originals. They are old games made to run with the current system, whereas the disc games are not made to run with it.

    I do not think it is on downloaded originals either, you shouldn't play any xbox games on your 360 anyway though....save your money for GTAIV!
