Halo and Halo 2 compatability

I decided to play Halo & Halo 2 again (to refresh myself on the story) and neither would play. My console recognizes the disc, but when i press A to play, it tells me;

 

Game Error

The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again.

 

I've follwed the directions listed at http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/8/t/25.aspx and have still had no luck getting these titles to work.

A solution would be greatly appreciated:)

Thank you.

That is certainly odd. Just to be sure, do you have any other BC games that play properly? When and where was your HDD purchased?

Did this solve your problem?

im not sure what you mean by BC game.. none of my originals work on my 360 but just fine in the original console.

 i bought the HDD from some company (or probably person) off of amazon probably about 2 years ago. i bought a 250 before MS sold them alone, assuming it was one off of a special edition elite console. when i got it it had silver stickers over the spec stickers on the bottom (no idea why) and the contents of the drive were all chinese-looking. the underneath sticker says:

Xbox 360 250G HARD DRIVE

MICROSOFT CORPORATION

REDMOND, WA (ZIPCODE) USA

For use with Xbox 360

and it seems to have the proper features such as; an FCC logo, UL listed logo, embossed (in the plastic) Microsoft and a hologram sticker, barcode, one of those crazy black and white pixel scancodes and (what looks like)  serial and item numbers.  the only difference i notice between my drive and others ive seen is it doesnt say the capacity on the top silver metal strip. it just says HDD.

i know its long, but that is the BEST possible description i can give

Yeah, if your console isn't reading any BC (backward-compatible) games, please try the discs on a friend's console, preferably one who got their HDD with their console.
