EVERY old gen xbox game either it is a disc or downloaded needs a hard drive attached (if old style) or inserted (slim style) this is not old news.  no contacting MS will not help as there are NO refunds on anything bought from the marketplace, it is not MS fault you do not have the hard drive on (or in) your console, sorry.

This is a problem that occurs if some conditions are not met. Since GTA: San Andreas is an Original XBOX game you will need to follow these guidelines in order to be able to play it on your XBOX 360.

  • You need to have an XBOX 360 with the latest dashboard update. This can be done easily by simply connecting the console to XBOX Live with an internet connection. If you do that and there's no prompt to download an update right when you login to XBOX Live then that means that you have the latest update.

  • You need to have a hard drive that is not fake or a knockoff and is produced or manufactured officially by Microsoft. These are hard drives purchased directly from reputable companies such as Gamestop (not used, as sometimes even Gamestop employees can't tell the difference between genuine Microsoft or knockoff), Amazon (not Amazon Marketplace, as some of those sellers list their items as genuine but they are not), Best Buy, etc. Let me explain this point, there are a lot of people that sell fake hard drives, these hard drives will work and look like just any other hard drive and will function just like any other one as well, but they will not play any sort of original XBOX games. This is because they lack the emulation files on a hidden partition which only original XBOX 360 hard drives contain. So you will need a genuine hard drive for whichever console you possess.

  • The game needs to be on the list of backwards compatability games currently supported on the XBOX 360. This list can be found here.
Hope this helps you out in figuring out why your game is throwing out this error message of simply re-downloading the content over and over again. As that is the error it will give you when you do not meet the set requirements to play the game. In all likely hood you are having an issue with bullet #2.
