Hi all,

I have heard that xbox live has been updated so you can transfer game content to the hard drive so you can play the game direct from hard drive with the disc in the drawer, can someone help me find instructions on how to do this please?

Will leave rep for all decent help given.

At the moment is not possible. You will need to wait until the next xbox dash board update which is due shortly.

The date for the update has not been released but all the talk on the xbox forum is that it is due in the fall (poss Oct / Nov time).

I'm looking forward to this as well seeing as though it sounds like an aeroplane taking off

Cool, thanks for the info. Do you know if you have to buy some extra software/hardware to be able to do it? lol donnydude.

dont think so fella. should just be included in the update. there will probably be an option asking if you want to rip the game to the hard drive or something. wish i had more than 20gb now!

No, all you will need is about 7gb of space per game and it will give you the option of copying it.

And you still need the disk in the drive anyways.


yea but games will load faster and your 360 wont sound like a lawnmower!

I really dont see the point of this - i mean yer it would be good if you could just play it off the har drive but you need the disc in as well
