Original Xbox game, attach hard drive?

  • Level   1

I just bought a 4gb Kinect system. When i try to play my original xbox games I get a error that I need to attach a xbox 360 hard drive. This doesn't seem right since I have a 4gb hard drive already.


Anyone know why & how to fix this? Thanks. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section.

    You will need to purchase the 250 gb hard drive in order to play original Xbox games. The 4gb is internal flash memory and is not considered a hard drive. The hard drive is required because of the emulation software installed that is required to run original games.

    Thats pretty stupid. So the only solution is spend $250.00 on a new console? Wow I'm regretting not getting a PS3 already.

    You dug up a thread from May, 2011, to ask about how to play original XBOX games on the supported list?


    Adding a HDD to a console is not $250, it's $100 or so.
