Hard drive needed to play.

Today I bought 1200 MS points to buy Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. 

When I bought it and downloaded it I wanted to play it, but when I started Play now, It said I needed a Hard drive to play it. But I dont't have one. 

Is there a way to get my 1200 Points back?

Sorry to bring you bad news.  The first line of the game description specifically states that a hard drive is required.  It is a good idea to make sure and read all descriptions before making any purchases.  The description also states "There are no refunds for this item"

Apologies but there are no refunds on Marketplace purchases. As the poster above stated, the first line in the item's description alerts the buyer of the need for a hard drive to play the game.

Well thank you. This means I bought a game for nothing. Waste of 15 euros.

It was a lesson worth though. Next time I'll read the descriptions of a game if a HDD is required.

Also for future reference, all original Xbox games require an official MS hard drive in order to play due to the emulation software required to run the game.

Have you tried using a flash drive? You might be able to run it off of that. It would be a much cheaper alternative if you can't afford a hard drive. Just make sure you get one with enough space on it. Also if you do this, keep in mind that the 360 only supports up to 16 gb.

Phantasystar- flash drives will not run original xbox games. The hard drives have the emulation software required to run the games. Flash drives or any other form of storage does not have that software.

Yes I got a 16GB flash drive since I got my xbox. I use that one to store my savegames etc. But it doesn't work. It gives a message when I start the game up that I need a Hard Drive.
