Ive seen and heard about people installing games to their Xbox. What does this do?

speeds up load times (generally, this was proven not the case with halo 3), stops the disc from spinning which reduces noise and heat and....i think ive missed something but cant remember whatchaoscougar1I found that it sped up loading time on halo 3 for me quite considerably.

Installing to the HDD will initially shorten load times, keep your 360 quiet as the disc drive isn't spinning constantly, and reduces wear and tear and potential disc read errors, however you will still need to have the disc in the tray so you don't just rent games then install them without purchasing them.znator
Yeah and people are like oh thats lame that you have to have the disc still.. but im like are you stupid? do you really think MS would allow you to rip games on the hard drive and then ditch the disc? Its like common sense.

[QUOTE="Deltapixel"]It made Fable 2 and GTAIV playable again for me. cruelwestonReally? I just bought Fallout 3 from GameStop and they won't take it back. The game works, but it freezes a lot, do you think it could help? If the game will install completely and start-up then it's the best thing you can do before calling it a coaster.
[QUOTE="qcmatt"]i have put all of my games in the hard drive but i have never see the difference in the loading time 000000000111Maybe not all of my games but what I have I couldn't tell any load time difference. Load time changes may just depend on how new/how good the DVD drive in the system is. If yours is newer then I'd imagine it'd be quick.
At some point a crack may end up in the boot section of the game, and eventually a cracked disk will fall apart, just hope it doesn't read/spin it too fast and cause it to shatter in your dvd drive.
i did it with my COD4 a year back and when my disc cracked from over playing it still worked and its got loads of cracks in it now and it still works fine :)PureDarkness17
