can't play an Xbox Origional

I recently downloaded Psychonauts, which is on the compatability list, on my xbox 360 slim from Xbox live and downloaded it to an external hard drive (not microsoft standard) because the 4gs didn't have enough memory. When i got a 250 microsoft official Hard drive, i moved all my memory, including Psychonauts on to it. The game didnt play on the external hard drive because it wasn't offical, but now it won't play on my 250gig. I can start the game, but before it actually gets to the game, it displays "The Game could not start, Try downloading the game again." I have already tried...

- redownloading the game

-clearing the system cash

-re installing the Xbox updates

-reformating my 250gig

Help would be most apreciated, thanks

Where did you get the 250 gb hard drive from?  If you ordered it online it might be possible that it is not an official xbox hard drive either.  There are a lot of those going around.

I have the same problem myself. I have bought Crash Bandicoot -Wrath of Vortex both from the Xbox Live, and I bought it in a store. Does not work on my Slim Xbox, nor does it work on a friends old xbox 360 with a harddrive. Both original equipment. same error message as thread owner gets

i bought it from amazon but it does have the Microsoft logo after it on the memory select menu. Is there an easy way to tell its not official? If it isnt, can i play xbox origional games from a disk?

Was it directly from Amazon, or a third party seller on Amazon? Did it come in the same packaging that the picture on Amazon shows - www.amazon.com/.../ref=sr_1_3

If it's not official, it won't play original Xbox games at all. Only the official hard drives have the emulation software required to run original games.
