when i installed call of duty from the disc plus a 1.5gb update, it sat on 0% for a while. I think it downloads the update before installing the game. I got fed up with waiting, and just did it over night when i went to sleep. My internet sucks pretty bad right now. So after a few hours it was still under 5%
Yeah, I am currently house sitting for family and the internet connection is awful. There is an initial download of at least a gig for a game update, like another user said. It took me a couple hours from the time I put the disc in until I was finally able to play it. It was at zero forever and then, when I came back about three hours later, it was done. No clue how it works.
Glad I read this thread, I was getting worried as I have been sitting on 0% for about 30 minutes. My internet connection is terrible, so if it does download the 1GB update prior to installation beginning, this is why it is still at 0%. I'm just going to leave it and see what happens. I know discs can be read as I managed to watch a DVD already.
My only real complaint is things like this aren't explained to well on the XBO. I'm hoping they patch in a download manager like what was in the 360. At least then you can see how much has been downloaded, as well as swapping the order of multiple downloads.
