    What specific Xbox 360 console do you own? Do you have an official Xbox 360 hard drive attached? In order to play Original Xbox games on Xbox 360, you need a console with an official Xbox 360 hard drive since the software required is stored on the hard drives
    themselves. 3rd party hard drives or non-official Xbox 360 hard drives will not work.

    Hope this helps!

    i can download games with gold but i can't play them on xbox 360

    Which game are you trying to play?

    If it's Star Wars, do you have an official 360 hard drive attached? In order for backwards compatibility to work on the 360, you have to have an official 360 hard drive due to the system files on the drive required to play the original Xbox games.

    i bought gta san andreas from game market and does not let me play

    Hello,

    You'd need to do exactly what the message tells you to. You need to attach an original Xbox 360 hard drive to your console in order to be able to play original Xbox games.

    If you have a Xbox 360 S 4GB or a Xbox 360 Original Arcade console then you'd need to get yourself an original Xbox 360 hard drive (either for the original Xbox 360, or the Xbox 360 Slim). This information is told to you when purchasing the game in the games
    description. An original Xbox 360 hard drive can be purchased from most gaming related retail stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Gamestop, etc.

    "An Xbox 360 hard drive is required to use this item"

    More information on the ability to play original Xbox games on the Xbox 360 can be
    found here.

    Grand theft auto San Andreas issue

    Hello, xBEASTLEE 831x,

    This seems to be an issue with your XBOX 360's Hard Drive. Since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is an original XBOX game it requires that an original XBOX hard drive be attached in order to play the game successfully. It freezing suggests that the files that
    are on the hard drive in a hidden partition are not working as they should be. I suggest trying another original XBOX hard drive to see if this alleviates the problem. You will not be able to download the game onto a USB Flash Drive and play it unfortunately.
