    Xbox 360 Hard Disk Drive - Installing Need for Speed Rivals


    Hi there - I hope someone can help.

    We bought our son Need for Speed Rivals not realising it needs Hard Drive installation, and so to curb his disappointment we bought (admittedly) a second hand 250GB hard drive as we can't afford new.

    The drive arrived today and we firstly tried to copy profiles and games from Arcade to the hard drive, but they all failed apart from some save games that came up with exclamation marks next to them.

    Next we tried to install Need for Speed. The screen comes up and and says "Install HD content to Hard Drive?" press A to continue or X to quit. So we press A, nothing seems to happen and then the game screen goes back to the above. An endless circle.

    I also noticed tonight upon start up, after pressing power, the Xbox takes ages (3-4 minutes) to get past the Xbox splash screen. And when it does eventually get to the login screen it takes ages as well.

    Any advice please? Is it a faulty hard drive and should I have not bought a second hand one?

    Thanks

    Jon

    :)

    need for speed rivals won't load

    I'm trying to load need for speed rivals it says hard drive required and won't let me go any further. It requires 1.6gb of space, I have a 4gb xbox 360 and cleared out 1.7gb

    to load it but it keeps coming up " Device not allowed, the game only permits installing HD content on the xbox 360 hard drive". Does anyone have any ideas?

    Issues with installation

    I'm gonna be more specific: the game doesn't accept installation on external storage. Whether it's flash drive or external hard drive, the game isn't meant to install on external storage connected through USB just like Need for Speed Rivals on Xbox 360.
    You need to install it on an internal hard drive (media hard drive). The link I provided to you aren't external hard drives; they're internal hard drives for the Xbox 360:

    Where did you purchase the drive from? It is possible that it could be either a faulty drive or 3rd party drive.

    need for speed rivals

    I got this from EA games support page

    "Need for Speed Rivals on the Xbox 360 requires an Xbox 360 Hard Drive with 3GB of storage space for a mandatory installation of game disc content. you will be prompted to perform this installation the first time time you boot up your game.

    You cannot play your game without this installation, nor can it be installed on flash memory sticks, or internal flash memory--such as the internal memory of the Xbox 360 Slim, or 4GB model. Hard Drives are available and sold separately for the Xbox 360
    Slim/4GB, Arcade, and Core consoles. "
