XBox 360S with 2.7GB and 277GB free on HD

Recovered gametag to HD to prove it's readable

Would appreciate any help--this was a main reason for getting the XBox.

Did you purchase the HDD separately from the console? I ask, because if it's a cheaper HDD that was purchased from somewhere like ebay, it's probably a knock off and the reason why it won't play the game.

It's a 3d party HD. It's readable/writeable by XBox, and I hear that the legacy emulator software is now part of the software update distribution rather than coming on the HD.  So there's no reason it shouldn't work.

That is the reason why it doesn't work then. The official hard drives have the emulation software on a special partition that you can't get through a software update.

Gem: Are you saying you are having issues downloading the game, playing it in general, or playing it online? Is this a disc game, installed from the disc, or a downloaded game?
