Where did you buy the 250GB HDD from?

 

The only authorized drives for 360 consoles are from Microsoft. If you bought a drive for $50 (and it wasn't from Woot), then you bought an unauthorized third party drive. They typically lack the partition needed to play original XBOX games.

 

Return the drive. Buy an official Microsoft drive.

No. Original XBOX games require a 360 HDD to operate.
