Xbox 360 Slim Won't Play Xbox Games - "Try downloading the game again"

Update:

 

It turns out I have a ripoff HDD. Inside was a recertified WD black...

 

Spent about 5 hours getting my stupid ass computer to write the backwards compatibility partition onto it.

 

But it works now!

Haven't been able to find a definitive answer to this yet.

 

I've got a trinity xbox 360 slim. It was a virgin when I got it, tamper seal intact.

 

I'm trying to use it to play original xbox games on the projector in my bedroom, but I'm just getting the following message:

Everyone seems to be saying that I need an OEM HDD with that special partition on it. Is mine OEM?

Removing the HDD gives this error:

Not being a console gamer, I'm kinda at a loss. What's going on here? The main menu shows the title of the disc fine.

I've tried 10 different ones from the list, including halo. All games play fine on my OG unit, but it only has component video

For those that don't have a properly modified drive, a drive ripped from an earlier version of xbox 360 ( the fat original style) would also work. You would just need the drive casing or even just something to shim the drive into place the S models.

 

You can also use the earlier drives as donor sources for the backwards compatibility partitions if you are less comfortable about using the ones supplied online.
