Installed games reading from the disc.

The disc drive on my Xbox runs very loudly, so I install my games onto a USB memory before playing them, but now the console is reading the game from the disc, not the install file.  I have checked the file, and it isn't corrupted, and the USB has been formatted.  Why is this happening?

 

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 1 Applies to:

it will still run from the disc to verify that the disc that was installed to your hard drive or flash drive is inside the disc tray once the system verifies that the disc is in the tray it will play from wherever you had it installed too.

Did this solve your problem?

I know that.  That's the reason I have the disc in the tray in the first place.  I'm saying that it isn't reading the instal file at all, and taking all (not just the disc verification) of the info from the disc.

Have you attempted to re-install the game to the storage device?  Perhaps something simply got messed up along the way.

Hi there Zen,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your installed games.

Just to make sure I completely understand what's happening:

  • You have your games installed to your USB drive.
  • You have been playing your games from the USB drive
  • Now your drive shows as formatted.
  • When you try to reinstall to the USB drive the games still play from the disc



Is that correct?

I'm kinda confused when you say that you checked the file was not corrupted. If the drive was formatted, it wouldn't show any file at all.



Please let us know and we'll work from there.
