Hi JasenaV, when you say you purchased a separate 250GB hard drive, did you purchase this from eBay or Amazon Marketplace and not from a retail store that it actually came in a new Microsoft branded XBOX 360 box. I ask this because since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is an original XBOX game it will only run on an original XBOX 360 hard drive.

This is a common problem with fake or knockoff hard drives sold on eBay and Amazon Marketplace as well as other sites online. They will play all other content on the XBOX 360 fine but will not play original XBOX games. They offer really cheap prices but they come with absolutely no warranties, you lose the ability to be able to play original XBOX games such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and god knows what other problems they might cause. The fake hard drives lack the hidden emulation files only found on the official Microsoft XBOX 360 hard drives.

It's not from Amazon or eBay but it isn't an original xbox hard drive, so that's probably it.  Since that is most likely the problem, do you think there is a way to make the non branded hard drive play the game?

none, your ONLY option is to buy a official drive, if you want to save some coin get one used from a store like game stop or EB games (depending on your region).  they test all drives before buying them, I got a 250 gig drive in feb for 90 with tax and I just saw a 320 gig used for almost the same price last week :).

Unfortunately not, but if you do end up going the Amazon route to buy a new hard drive you can get a new Microsoft officially branded hard drive for about $87, though that seems to be the only route to go if you'd really like to play original XBOX games.

Greetings, JasenaV. If you do not have an official hard drive you will need to get one in order to play. Very sorry for the inconvenience! Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
