    I always say EXTRACT the downloaded iso, and rebuild it. It could be a number of things. Don't just go and burn downloaded isos. See what's on the inside. If it looks legitimate "basic game files," then re-burn it using an xISO program.

    Also, try "cold booting," rebooting after you've popped in the game.

    Most definitely. PAL cannot be played on a NTSC system without changing the eemprom of your xbox, which you would need Enigmah Video Gameswitch.
