Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Not working

So I downloaded GTA: San Andreas from the marketplace and it does not play.  Every time I try and launch the game, I get an error that says: The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again.

 

I have an xbox slim 4gig, with the official Microsoft 250G harddrive in it. I've redownloaded the game 3 times and even tried clearing the cache via the memory menu. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

When redownloading the game, please follow the exact instruction on this sticky (forums.xbox.com/.../33.aspx). Where did you get your HDD from?

IT wont work because you need  the first xbox 360 witch is Xbox 360 Pro / Xbox 360 Premium that came out.i did some my research and on the first xbox 360 it said xbox originals can be played.

Aura: My guess then is that you bought an illegitimate HDD. Was it from Craigslist, eBay, or sold as second hand? You are able to play Xbox Originals on the new S console.

Same thing with me..I just made my own post about this issue...

MS 250 GB hard drive, latest console update installed...Everything else works (game disks and downloaded games), I even downloaded a trial version of Bejeweled 2 and it works..

I too would like a refund of my points...Seems like a rip off to me.

I'm also having problems with this game and funny thing is I can play the game from the disc in my xbox 360 slim with a microsoft certified 250 GB HDD hard drive, it works on my old white xbox with a 20 GB HDD just fine, but my old xbox is now officially red ringed out for good. But it wont work with my 4gb or my 250 gb HD with the downloadable content of the game on my xbox 360 slim. Talked to 3 different phone reps and they cant seem to fine out why It wont work either and they take days to call back and also THEY failed to mention in the detail part of the downloadable content that you need these certain hard drives to play this game, so microsoft can you please fix the problem so I can play the game without needing to buy a useless piece of equipment.

My issue resolved...Seems my internet connection from the ISP was off/on for a while...Deleted the game, cleared the memory cache, and re-downloaded...Worked like a charm.
