    I purchased a xbox 360 for my son for Christmas. I have tried everyway that I have seen on the internet to play Splinter Cell with no success. The internet said to buy xbox harddrive, check. The internet said download backwards compatibility file, check. I keep getting error: Game Error

    The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again.
    For more help, visit www.xbox.com/support.

    orginal xbox games require a hard drive and the xbox360 must be connected
    to the internet in order to download the Backward compatibility update for
    orginal xbox games to play on the xbox 360. also, not all orginal xbox games can be played on the xbox 360.

    is the game scratched up ?? if so try cleaning the disc
    if that doesn't work i'd say that you might have a defective disc.
    what do you mean try downloading the game again??
    is this an orginal xbox game or burn't disc?

    take the game to your nearest gamestop and ask them if they
    could test the disc for you,to see if it is either your disc or your system.
    is the game ntsc or pal

    it means the region the game is from would pay to check what region you fall under & if it's PAL then the cheapest method to play game is get an original xbox & chip it,then install game to the hdd as it will play direct without need for disc insertion after installation

    are you sure you have a hard drive? 4gb internal memory is not a hard drive, and also it must be an original hard drive, one made from a blue scorpion will never work!

    Funny, mine do both work. One is made from a Scorpio Black, the other one from a Scorpio Blue, both with the Security Sectors from 320 GB Xbox 360 harddrives, both with partition 2 injected. Just played the first Mercenaries on my Slim.

    I don't think so, it's just that most people forget to inject the partition 2, then the emulator for old games won't work.

    There are 3 games that MS WONT let you play on the 360.

    1) Splinter cell

    2) MechAssault

    3)007

    Each one of these games had exploits that allowed you to soft mod the original Xbox and and install custom dashboards, run burned games, homebrew apps. MS Didn't/doesnt want to make the same mistake with the 360, so they disabled certain games to prevent easy hacking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softmod#Softmods_for_Microsoft_Xbox
