    Original Xbox games require a hard drive because of the emulation software used to run them. If you're using the 4gb slim you only have flash memory and not an actual hard drive. You would have to purchase either the 250 gb or 320 gb hard drive in order for the game to work.

    WOULD AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE WITH A USB WORK ? IF IT HELPS MY EMAIL IS Peter_m54@hotmail.co.uk

    plus it is common knowledge that you need a hard drive to play the old gen xbox games since the old gen xbox did not come without one.  and next time, WATCH IT WITH THE CAPS LOCK thanks.

    Depends on where you get it from. Should be pretty cheap.

    You need a Microsoft hard drive device to play original Xbox games.
