i did. it cuts the load times, and i have fewer problems w/freezes.it also minimizes noise/wear on the cd drive it does take up 7gigs,tho. try it...worst case is you lost a few minutes of playtime & you delete it from your hd.
I install every single game I play to my HDD. I don't know or care about making the load times faster. I mean even if it does make the load times faster or slower, we are only talking seconds. No big deal.
But my disk drive only spins when I am doing the install. I can play 8 hours straight with the disk drive not spinning. And the way 360s are, that has got to be a good thing.
Me either but I'll answer it, haha. When you install it the the HD, the xbox only spins it once when you start the game to make sure you have a legit copy. The rest is read off of the HD. Ta-da, f'n miracles.
I think he means the DVD drive doesn't spin....obviously the HD has to spin.
I always install to HD if I'm going to play the game any length of time. It usually lowers load times (some games maybe not), and ALWAYS makes gameplay quieter. The DVD drive is quite loud when spinning.
