I have an Xbox 360 game that I want to copy to my storage device, but I can't figure out how, if it is even possible.

Has anyone done this before?

Have you taken these steps (from MS Support)?

Install a game on your hard drive

1.Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

Note After you insert the disc, the default action is to automatically start the game. If this happens, exit the game and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

2.From the Home hub, select the game in the drive tray, and then press X on your controller.

3.Select Install.

4.A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.

Note Installing an Xbox 360 game might take 12 minutes.

The disk is still required to play (needs to be inserted into the Xbox360).

Here is another question listing benefits/downsides of installing games.

  • Is the disc still required after this is done?

    I think the OP wants to play the game without the disc, which I don't think is possible. Jul 29, 2013 at 20:17
