Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 2 Applies to:

Just a quick question.  Where did you get the hard drive?  From the internet or a store?  If it was from the internet it might be the hard drive itself that is causing the issue as it may not be an official Microsoft hard drive.

that means nothing 99% of the fakes come in boxes that look just like the real mccoy, they even go as far as to duplicate any hologram stickers on it that the real drives may have.  all I can say is try other games that are on the backwards compatibility list if they still do not play, than sorry to say you have a bootleg drive that does not have the emulation for old xbox games that real OEM (MS made) drives do, I would contact the seller for a refund and if you get it, pay the extra $$$ and get a real drive from stores that sell 360 accessories or trusted online vendors like best buy.com wal mart.com etc.

As suggested, try any other Original game you have to see if that has issues as well. Also, try playing them on other consoles and see if they work there.

Make sure the gamertag or profile you are using is located on the 250gb hard drive. If it's on the 4gb flash, move it to the 250gb.

As other people have said, if the console is not legit Microsoft, it will not work. If you got it on Ebay or Amazon 3rd party store, chances are it's a fake.
