Original Xbox game issue

I recently bought GTA III & Vice City on ebay (just for the hell of it, bring back some memories) and when I tried putting in either game into my console, I get an error reading "The game couldn't start.  Try downloading the game again."  I have tried almost everything to get this game to work and I just can't figure it out.

I have an Xbox 360 Arcade with a 250 GB hard drive and all the Xbox Live updates.

Any help would be appreciated.

The 360 can only support some Original Xbox Games, those games musn't be part of the compatible games list unfortunately.

Though it could always messed up discs.

Problem is though, both of those games are backwards compatable.
