Cannot play Fable on 360, tried all steps in the Announcement

Good day!

I'm attempting to play the original Fable on my Xbox 360 console.  I have a Pro (white w/ Chrome disk drive) with a 20GB HDD.  I had no trouble playing Halo or Halo 2 on this console, but when I try to play Fable, I am greeted with the "This original Xbox game is not supported" dialogue.  I've tried all of the steps in the announcement thread about playing original Xbox games on a 360.  My system software has been updated to version 2.0.13146.0 via the "Test Xbox LIVE Connection" interface.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Enjoy your day,

Erik

Thanks for the suggestion.  It was also in the announcement thread, and I tried it, but still no luck.  Keep 'em coming!

Hey mate, have you tried that disc on a friend's console, one who also has an official HDD? Please let us know if the same issue occurs there, too.

One of my friends is able to play the disc on his original XBOX, but not on his XBOX 360.

That's certainly odd. Does the disc have any markings, scratches, smudges, etc?

Surprisingly, the disc looks flawless.  When I put the game in my 360, it recognizes that it's the Fable disc.  It doesn't say that the disc can't be read; it says that the game is not supported.  I've tried uninstalling the update and reinstalling it, I've tried clearing my cache, everything in the announcement thread.  I guess I'll have to borrow an original XBOX from someone :/  Thanks for the suggestions, everyone
