GTA 5 Disk 1 and 2 Issue

There are two issues. First, I have installed disk 1, yet I must use disk 1 everytime until it promps me to insert disk two. Secondly, 70% of the time after I insert disk two the game feeezes and I have to restart my machine. After which I muat repeat step 1.

Hey jay,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your GTA install.

I'm not quite sure I understand exactly what's happening.

Disc 1 is just an Install disc so it should just prompt you to install the full ~7GB game file, then it will prompt you to insert the "Play" Disc 2.

Is this what you're seeing?

Are you installing Disc 2 as well? Rockstar recommends only installing the first disc for optimal performance. 

Or are you trying to play using Disc 2 and it freezes? When it freezes why do you say you must repeat step one? Is the install not showing anymore?

  • Does your console freeze when you play other games?
  • Have you tried the steps in our Screen Freeze troubleshooter?

Please let us know exactly what's happening and the answer to those questions and we'll go from there.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
