Is this hard drive an official Xbox 360 hard drive or did you buy one from an auction site such as eBay?

so ive had several chats with microsoft reps. and if clearing your cache reloading your gamer profile or deleting the latest update didnt work your pretty much out of luck, i contacted rockstar about this and they suggest downloading several demos then redownloading gta, i think the idea of this is to write the game on an unused portion of hard drive im on my second download right now prob. end up putting 10gb of useless stuff in my xbox to see if this works i'll post in a few hours with an update note* this is only viable to users with 250gb hard drives as a 4g has prob. been written over already....come on microsoft you seriously that short on money?

Hey first time posting here, they're not the only ones experiencing this problem, I had bought this game from the market place 2 months ago and since then been trying to download it every day since then It goes to the active downloads menu it pends for a minute or 2 then starts downloading right away at 1% it stays like for awhile and after that moment is up it's still at 1% and a message pops up saying can not download Grand Theft Auto SA .  I tried all of the tips that have been posted in the support forum but still nothing this is not the users problem, it's a problem with Microsoft. please I just want to play this game haven't played it since I got rid of my OG Xbox or you can refund my points for anoter game

If you get the error message "The game could not start. Please download the game again. For more help, go to www.xbox.com/support." Then I suggest you follow solution 1 on this website support.microsoft.com/.../en-us and hopefully it will solve the problem for you.
