If I buy a used game the first thing I do is install the game onto my hard drive. I figure that this process must read the entire disc and so will verify the disc is not damaged.
Does anyone know if I'm right?
ChrisF has seen games that won't play from disc but will install and subsequently play. That leads me to add another sub-question:
Has anyone installed a game successfully but then been unable to play it, either due to disc damage during the startup disc check or due to some other corruption?
