Console is still reading off the disc, after installing to the hard drive.

Installed Forza 4 to the drive and it worked fine for about 2 months, and now all of a sudden it starts reading off the disc to play the game. I know that it has to read the disc for the first few seconds to make sure you have the game, but then it stops spinning. Now, an hour into gameplay, it is still spinning and the loading times are longer. What gives? I deleted the installation and reinstalling now. Anybody have this problem?

reinstalling did nothing...still spins during the game. This makes installation completely useless.

The newer discs should only spin for a few minutes after starting the game. Gears 3 and Halo Anniversary are two more games that do the same. Arkham City does, as well, I think. For Gears, it's usually done spinning before I join my first game. Why it's still spinning after an hour is beyond me.

EDIT: AC:Revelations also does the same thing. It even starts spinning the disc when switching between single player and multiplayer. I have not played Forza 4, but maybe some things require the disc to spin at certain times?

My installed games always "spun" for a few minutes.

This has been a common problem and in my experience it doesn't stop after a few minutes and is also running at the highest speed. The one solution I have found to work oddly is to play music through the music player on your console and then start the game.
