  1. How well do installed games on flash drives run on 360?


    I have an Xbox 360 slim 4GB version, and I right now have the chance to get a 30GB flash drive. Now, the Xbox 360 hard drive for the slim, in my opinion, is rather expensive.

    So, I am basically asking Xbox 360 gamers who install games to their USB sticks: How well does it run?

    There are a few games I want to install. Notably GTA IV because for some reason, I am having severe texture problems running from disc (This is the only game that does it for me, and according to GTAForums, installing the game seems to fix the problem)

    :)

    Game not playing off usb drive

    So i installed disc one on my HDD, and then I bought a flash drive to install disc 2 on it so it wouldnt run on my disc drive cause its makes so much noise. Its worked a few times where I dont hear the disc drive but most of the time its just running off
    the disc drive :/ I have all my saves on the flash drive and I still dont know how to make it so it reads the game from the flash drive and not the disk drive. Someone help?

    Installing GTA V to USB Flash Drive

    I have my Install Disc for Grand Theft Auto V installed to my hard drive, and today I installed the "Play" disc to a USB drive formatted for my Xbox 360 because of recommendations that it would give better performance. However, whenever I start up my game,
    my console still makes a lot of noise because of the disc spinning meaning it isn't reading from my USB drive. How do I get it to read from my USB drive? There used to be an option in the older dashboard like "Run from Hard Drive" if you had the game installed
    and pressed X at the dashboard, but that option is gone now. How do I force the game to run from it's installed flash drive?

    How well do installed games on flash drives run on 360?

    They wont run as well as from a hard drive but you'll still get better performance than running it from the optical drive.

    Just try and avoid PNY USB drives. They seem to be the ones that cause the most trouble.

    Max Payne 3 Game Error Problem!

    Hello GT Strength,

    Do you have the ability to remove your XBOX 360's Hard Drive and use a USB Flash Drive (16GB) to download your profile to, and install the game on? I'm going out on a limb here but I'm guessing the reason why your able to play the game normally when it's not
    installed is due to a bad hard drive or a failing hard drive.

    Using a USB Flash Drive and seeing if you are able to run the game with no problems will then give us a bigger picture of the issue and how to go about correcting it.

    Online Pass FIfa 13

    I would also say alongside the online pass install the game on your hard drove as well, try downloading the pass on to a flash drive by selecting that flash drive at the begining of the game

    Awakenings Expansion- I bought it... so why wont it let me play it?

    This is going to sound odd but, even with an HDD, the extra content disk needs to be installed twice (so to speak). The first install is like the download process, in that it puts the info on the 360 (you may not NEED to install the extra content disc, so
    much as just run it). Running the extra content pack merges it with the game file. Without an HDD, there's no game file for the extra content to become a part of. So my guess is that without an HDD, you can't use the extra content... Unless you have DAO installed
    to your flash drive as well. See if you can install DAO to your flash drive, then install the extra content with it. I can't say for sure if or how this would work, since I've never had to deal with not having an HDD.

    WTH With the Graphics?

    The game should not be installed to the HDD. Doing so apparently causes the texture issues.

    Best to run the game from the DVD.

    Apparently though you can install the game to a USB flash drive and that will fix all the texture issues.
