How can I get Halo to work in my xbox 360 when it's an original Xbox game disk?

I just bought the original Halo disk at goodwill for $5 it has no scratches or anything and looks brand new but every time I try to play it it says "could not start game, please try downloading again" and I didn't even download it! if I look at my game library when the game is in my xbox then it doesn't even show up all it says on the dashboard is play HALO does anybody know why it isn't working correctly?

Most of the Halo games like Halo 2 and Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack will not work in your Xbox 360 as the Xbox Live online play and its features are not supported any more. To play Halo: Combat Evolved, you may need to start again if the menu of the map selection is accessed through multiplayer. This is because Xbox 360 can freeze.

The game won't even start it just gives me a thing saying to download again or go to for support and all it does is give a list of games that work and halo seems to be on there. I mean could it just be the disk that has issues? I bought it at goodwill.

Original xbox games don't all work in the 360. You may never get it to play.
