  2. Please help

    Do you have the game installed to your hd or just playing off the disc?

    If just playing off the disc, try installing it.

    Disc not playing or installing

    So I just bought black ops 2 and it wont play or let me completely install it. Someone help because I spent $60 on a piece of plastic, that does not work. Please tell me what I can do before I go up to GameStop and probably get kicked out for chewing their
    a** out.

    can I play games that were not bought in xbox store without discs using xbox live account?

    No, the disc copies of games you purchased need to have the disc in the console to play, even after installation. There are upsides and downsides to disc vs. downloaded games, this is one of the downsides of buying a physical copy.

    Halo 4 Campain Reclaimer Mission Problem

    I think Errick was saying to install Disc 1 to your system instead of just disk 2. That way it plays from the HDD vs the disc.

    Digital Copy popping up error about disc

    I'm getting the same thing when I try to play MX vs ATV Alive and GTA IV multiplayer, GTA IV is installed from disc. My friend is also saying his new copy of Destiny is giving him the disc error installed and from disc.

    [quote user="v SHADOWVIPER v"]3. I do not currently install games hence you have simply given my statement validity.

    You really should install your games. The 360's disc drive is know for failure so if you're constantly running games then it's only a matter of time before it stops working. And installing games vs. playing them from the disc will not change any type of
    licensing agreements, it's the exact same thing.

    can you install one game while playing another

    @M Bierce

    You can't play a disc game while installing another disc game

    But you can play a disc game while another is downloading, play a download while installing a disc or play a download while installing another download.
