Moving GTA 5 game play disc to USB? How?

It appears that the performance for GTA5 is greatly increased if the game disc is installed

to flash memory as opposed to using the disc.

Can someone tell me how to copy my game play disc to  USB drive?

Thanks!

Hi there,

 

First of all, you are not exactly copying the game to a USB stick, you are just installing it to a USB stick instead of the Hard Drive.
 

  1. Find a USB stick with at least 8GB of memory on, it's recommended you use 16GB for best results.
  2. Insert the Game disc (not the install disc) of GTA V
  3. Go the the game disc on your dashboard as if you were going to play it and press X.
  4. Choose install and select the USB stick as the memory device.
  5. Play the game and see the benefits.

     

Hopefully this makes sense.

From the Rockstar website

"For optimal performance, we recommend only installing the Install Disc, and not also installing the Play Disc to the Xbox 360 Hard Drive or USB drive via Xbox Home (dashboard)."

They don't recommend installing the play disc.

Hi there,

It's true they originally said they do not recommend installing the game disc to the Hard Drive, however, it has been shown that installing the game disc to a USB drive and the installation disc to the Hard Drive gives better performance.

I Agent Flash I - Rockstar has not yet changed their position on installing the play disc.  They do not recommend it.  Of course you can install it to a USB and have it perform better than if you installed it to the HDD but they don't suggest doing it.  They say it works best off of the disc.
