23 Minutes to install a 3.8 GIG game. Is something Wrong?

boo hoo. when i tried downloading AC2 for the free game thing, it took me at least 10 hours, probably closer to 13 or 14, of just leaving it on the dashboard downloading.









I have really terrible internet, but have grown pretty used to it

Hmm... It looks like I fixed it. I removed the HDD and then reinserted it. I then installed Skyrim again and it took 5 minutes this time. That was weird.


It could have just been somewhat loose. *shrug*


Yeah, I got one of those "Hey, your hard drive is broken" messages a couple weeks back because it was loose enough to seem connected but not fully.

TC might have been at a similar sweet spot.

Background downloads, turn them on.

20 minutes is close to the average to install all games on the 360.
It being under 4 gb's doesn't matter.

I don't think so. I've never timed it, but it seems to take quite on a bit on my OG console

Uh, yes it does matter. The smaller the size of the file the less time it takes to install. This applies to any type of installation. :|

It's not like the console's DVD drive makes itself take just as long to install a 3.8GB file as it would a 7.8GB file.

It doesn't take me anywhere near 20 minutes to install most games, if any at all.

Actually no, it depends on the sizes of all the files INSIDE the install file, that's not just one big file you know.

If there's a crapload of smaller files, it's going to take longer because write speed for lots of smaller files is SLOWER, not faster. It's actually faster to write large files than it is smaller files.

I installed Skyrim Legendary Edition which is 3.8 GIGs and it took more then 20 minutes to install. I bought a new 360 but I'm not sure if it's my Console, HDD, or Game. What should I do?
