  1. Disk 1 Install Issues Fixed on Phat


    This is my first post guys so take it easy on my ;-)

    I have been having the issue of disk 1 not being recognised on my old 360 for the last month after my slim threw a hissy fit and threw all it's toys out of the pram and, as it happens, all of my game saves from the last 6-7 years. Since then, I have had to
    revert back to my Phat that was hastily repaired and brought back in to service. That was great for Netflix and ALL of my other games that I have got on disk apart from GTA V.

    After wandering around planet Google for what seems to be an eternity and getting sick and tired of everyone and his wife posting that Rockstar recomends not installing disk 2 blah, blah, blah.., Clearing the cache 3 times, rotating your xbox counter -clockwise
    7 times on a full moon in the presence of a sacrificial virgin and other non sensical witch trickery, I landed on a possible fix.

    If this has been covered ad-nausium on these forums, I appologise, but no end of hours has been wasted by me to get back to Los Santos to carry on the good fight.

    The work around for this issue that worked for me was, instead of going straight ahead and install disk 1 onto the hdd from the dashboard, go ahead and put disk 2 into your console, select play game from the dashboard, and leave it until the game complains
    that you need to install disk 1 first, eject disk 2, insert disk 1, then leave it for ten minutes whilst it installs flawlesly, then it will tell you to swap to disk 2 and hey presto, back to kicking **** and taking names in Los Santos.

    Now at this point, I should remind you that I found this resolution online and do not have the name of the poster. I just thought it may help the people that have this game but cannot install the first disk.

    Anyway, thats that for now as I intend to buy a golf club in the very near future.

    :)

  2. Question before release...

    Probably play off the disk until the texture issues get fixed. Then I will install it.

    Having problems with lots of newer games on older 360

    I have an Xbox 360-s with 320gb HDD.

    AC Black Flag ... Disk 2 works great, can play tutoial no prob. Disk 1 ( install disk) unrecognizable.

    Black ops ghosts ... Disk 1 works great. Can play local and online. Disk 2 ( install disk ) unrecognizable.

    GTAV 2 sets of disks, install never made it to disk 2.

    Diablo also un-recognizable.

    All disks are pristine.

    Battlefield 4 loaded no problem along with a few other titles. Have a hard time believing it is a bad opticle drive. reads lots of disks no problems. Just not install disks on a lot of newer titles.

    Am I the only experiencing choppy gameplay?

    disk 1 is the manditory install, installing disk 2 will hinder quality

    Booting back to dashboard? Do games actually install?

    Another update...

    Turns out the other day when I was installing and having those issues it was downloading the game from the store for some reason and installing, that's why it said it was downloading files or what ever it said but it never said installing. I just uninstalled
    ghost and put the disk back in to install and it started installing from the disk.

    I talked to Microsoft again and they said the other day customers were having issues with installs and that is what was happening and they were telling people to unhook network cable so the game would install in offline mode from the disk.

    So that is why the game was able to continue the install while the disk was out haha. Looks like they fixed that issue as its installing from the disk now and way quicker than it installed the other day.

    When will Rockstar update GTA 5 with the patch?

    [quote user="nicoyo505"]

    I just want them to fix the install issue. Tired of hearing the disk spin and having my xbox overheat itself and my room.

    [/quote]If you have a compatible flash drive you can install the "Play" disk to it and the "Install" disk to your HDD. I have mine setup this way and I have no texture problems and my disk doesn't spin.
