If you are also troubled by this error, here are a couple of troubleshooting tips to help you resolve the Xbox One 0x8082000c backward compatibility error.

  1. Before proceeding with other troubleshooting steps, make sure the game is backward compatible.
  2. Since not all the games are backward compatible, the error may occur if the console fails to recognize the game in the player.
  3. Even if the title is backward compatible, you may still get the error if the title version is not supported by the console.
  4. Go to the Xbox Backward compatibility page.
  5. Use the given filters to look for the game that is causing the error in the list.
  6. If your title is listed in the backward compatibility supported list, follow the next set of steps.

2. Check Xbox Live service status

  1. This error can also occur if the Xbox Live service is facing a service outage.
  2. Go to the Xbox Live Status page.
  3. In the Status page, go through both the Services and Apps & Games section and check for any service or game that is facing issues. Any service with a red dot is the service facing outage.
  4. Wait for the developers to resolve the issue and get the service back online.

3. Perform a power cycle

  1.  If the game was working fine earlier and the error occurred recently, it can be due to some temporary issues that a power cycle can fix.
  2. Make sure the console is powered on.
  3. Press and hold the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds. Wait till the lights stop flashing and the console is powered off, and release the button.
  4. Disconnect all the cable connected to the console, including the power cord from the wall outlet.
  5. Wait for a few minutes and connect all the cable back to the console.
  6. Press the Xbox button to power on the console.
  7. From the home screen, try launching the game and check for any improvements.

4.  Reset the OS and settings
