Can't install game...

EDIT: Check post #7.

---

For some strange reason, this game will not install on my HDD. It just sits there saying "Installing game. Do not turn off your console or remove your storage device." I always install my games but this one won't for some stupid reason.

My laser works, it can't be my Xbox, it's relatively new. The game disk is brand new. I've tried restarting the Xbox and no luck.

What is going on?

do you have enough free space on whatever drive you're trying to install it on? if so, try restarting your console. my really old PRO console does that sometimes.

I have 144 GB free. That's not it. I've restarted the Xbox numerous times so far. It's not working.

Try installing it while disconnected from Live. Sometimes that fixes it.

I covered my entire console with mustard, and it seemed to fix the problem.

Alright I got it to install finally. After a day of waiting I installed it while sitting on the dashboard completely offline after a fresh start.

Same here. I didn't know what EXACTLY fixed the problem,but it started to install once I took my Hard Drive out and cleared the system cache.

I have the exact same problem, but with Final Fantasy. I have no idea why, but I'm glad to see it isn't just me.

EDIT - Go offline, and it works just fine.

I had the same problem....

How I fixed it was to just start the game normally (which downloaded a patch) then jeweled back to the dashboard and tried again and it worked.....

Not saying that was definitely the fix - but certainly worked for me.

I had the problem too. I signed out of my profile and it installed, signed back in and started playing.

I had to update the game first aswell, but i think it's really wired.The install process has nothing to do with updating
