I tried to install my Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 onto my sisters Xbox 360. It successfully installed but when you press on play from console/hard drive it asks you to insert disk. I am not sure if that is only for certain 360 consoles but most probably for all.

What file does the xbox 360 use to identify game disks?

The identification file is called the DatIDFl0982 or the DatIDFl0732 Depending on which game you use you can bypass it by installing the game to your 360 and while its installing you eject the disk and swap it for another empty disk, it will then say Installation failed and will say canceling which will then put all the data onto the new disk and will also put one of the Identification file onto the disk. This disk will have the game on it but it will not work on your xbox instead it will come up on your computer as a storage disk and you will be able to manually copy the Identification file onto your computer. This file can now be put onto another disk which may contain a pirated game ( i dont know what your planning to do with the disk) and the pirated game will now work because of the Identification file so you can play copied games... Although im not saying you should do that because its illegal and i have no doubt that you would break the law ;)

What is the point of ''installing'' a game to your Xbox 360?

Installing your game on the xbox 360 means the game on the disc is saved onto your hard-drive, so in theory you could play it without the disc, but obivously that's pretty bad for business so you still need to put the disc in for the game to run.Firstly, it just makes the game faster. Meaning: better loading times, and sometimes better performance (the game runs smoother.Secondly, the xbox 360 is extremely loud. Installing the game means the xbox won't have to spin the disc and fan it and all that technical stuff. So it runs a lot quieter. Honestly, I can't play a game without installing it now because I'm used to a silent xbox.Thirdly, and most importantly, the disc doesn't have to spin, and the fans don't have to work overtime. So you reduce your chances of getting a red ring. I've had my xbox for 3 years now and it's never crashed or had a 'red-ring of death'.So if you keep your xbox in a clean, well-ventilated room, and install your games, then you could save yourself a lot of cash. I know people who get through an xbox yearly.NOTE: Installing games (obviously) takes up memory, so make sure you have enough space on your hard-drive or memory stick...whatever they're called.

A game bought for an Xbox will always work for an Xbox. Unfortunately, buying an Xbox 360 game will not work for a normal Xbox system. But most stores will give a full refund and/or a swap. Hope this helped.
