Default How long does it take to transfer a full DVD game to the XBOX hard drive?

Wondering if it's worth getting a bigger hard drive for the xbox instead of getting a dvd burner...

it depend on how big the game is. a full dvd would take about 30 minutes, excluding the extracting time which is about another 30 minutes

Hmm...burning a full DVD takes 30 minutes...so the only time I would save would be in the loading of games...but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than a dvd burner PLUS DVD-Rs...hmm.

To be honest the load time difference between a DVD-R and the hard drive are not that different, nothing to be bothered about anyways.

So you would say that loading about 5 times faster is "nothing to be bothered about"?

I will not turn this in to a flaming match but i think your "5 times faster" is a load of BS, there is no way on earth it loads that much faster.

It may load 5 times faster than a CDRW but not a DVD-R

Peace
