What is it with everyone and Sandisk? They don't even state the speed of the device, far as I saw. Get sometihng that's definitely 30MB/sec read. Seems to be the max for USB 2.0 drives.

8GB needed to install, I only have 6GB free.

Since I'm trading in Saints Row The Third and Assassins Creed 3, that should free up enough space (I hope).

installed my 2nd disc to my usb stick at the front of the console and no problems, the game is fine now, no noise.

i was tempted to actually install to the main HDD to see any difference but i don't think i'll tempt fate.

Is this one good?
Amazon.com : Kingston Digital DataTraveler Generation 3 - 16 GB Flash Drive DTIG3/16GBZET : Usb Flash Drives : Electronics Amazon.com : Kingston Digital DataTraveler Generation 3 - 16 GB Flash Drive DTIG3/16GBZET : Usb Flash Drives : Electronics
Was told its good but better to use the rear port but this don't fit in the rear port without a extention cable. Is the sandisk one better?

Sometimes you get those messages and it doesn't matter. Other times the USB is really really slow. If the device is USB 2.0 compliant, you're probably fine, and with that particular USB, I think you'll probably be fine.

thanks for the reply
my brother has a compatible usb stick that he will give me next time i see him

it's not a huge deal either way, i am just annoyed by the noise the xbox makes when it's reading the game from the actual disc, sounds like the damn machine is posessed

I've only installed the first disk, and the noise from my Xbox isn't that bad since I've got the slim one and have the volume on my home theater system turned up enough that its not a problem. If I were to install the 'play' disc would the load time be any faster?

It'd be minimal I'd say.

I played a few hours without installing disk 2 today, then decided to install it. I think I'm going to keep it this way. I'm pretty sure the human eye can't even see the different this makes, and a quieter Xbox is nice.

I had both installed on HDD and had a lot of pop ups during fast driving and movie parts.. uninstalled the play disc and had no problems what so ever..I think it's only a problem with older 360's mines a original ..My son has newer 360 and has both installed and has not had any problems..

What size TV do you play on? I'm curious because I'm sure any teeny flaws would be slightly more visible on a bigger set. Though definitely minimal at best.

Mines only a 24" so I guess you have a point there.

You need a 16gb flash drive btw, it wont fit on the 8gb after it is formatted for xbox storage.
