Xavier (explaining why he can’t find Magneto with Cerebro): “He’s found some way to shield himself from it.”
Wolverine: “How would he know how to do that?”
Xavier: “Because he helped me build it.”

Remember, that Bryan Singer was involved in all of these films. He allowed contradictions for the sake of story.
In no way am I saying that Origins: Wolverine is on par with Singer's films, but the reality is, this is how some franchises are. You have to accept the bad with the good. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Star Trek, Terminator, Matrix, etc... most multi-film franchises have some horrible movies involved in them, but they are still apart of the franchise.
