Older game (V8 Supercars 2) on Xbox slim

Greetings,

I have a Xbox Slim (2 weeks old) and purchased an older game (V8 Supercars 2). Whenever I insert the disk, I get the following error message appear:

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

 

Everything about the game appears original and the disk looks to be in perfect condition.

Is there any reason that this older game shouldn't be playable on a new Xbox console?

 

Thanks.

It looks like this game isn't backwards compatible. Not all Xbox games are backwards compatible. If it's not on this list, it won't work - en.wikipedia.org/.../List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
