    Is it possible for me to download GTA V on an XBOX, transfer the files to a hard drive then...


    I own GTA V on both platforms, but I have pretty slow wifi and it would take extremely long for me to install GTA V on my computer alone. I was wondering if I could copy the contents from my XBOX to my computer as they're both pretty similar games with a few differences. Then maybe I can use Steam to verify the files and get anything I missed. Is this possible?

    :)

    Grand Theft Auto V game error

    Hi, it could be a problem with your storage device, if you are using a hard drive, then try deleting the game, then download a few demos that add up to the same size of GTA V, then re-download GTA V. The reason to download the demos first, is that GTA V
    is stored on another part of the hard drive which hopefully wont give you the error.

    Need help on gta5 error MSG

    Hi Astariah,

    No, you do not need to install the play disk. The first disk titled, "install" will install the entire game on your hard drive, it may take some time, around 10-15 minutes. After the game is on your hard drive the "install" disk is not needed any more,
    unless you install the game on a different hard drive. The second disk titled, "play" is what you play in the disk tray to play the game.

    As for the hard drive issue, I definitely recommend trying what fredgiblet said.

    To delete files and switch your hard drive:

    1. Go to the Xbox dashboard

    2. Once on the dashboard, scroll to the right, all the way till you get to the settings tab

    3. Click on system, then on storage. A screen will pop up showing how much memory is available on your hard drive. Click on your hard drive.

    4. A list of all your games, videos, demos and other downloads will pop up. Find the gta 5 files, click on them and select delete. Just so you know, even if you delete all your gta 5 files, achievements will not be affected, your saves and progress in the
    game will be affected. It might require that you start the campaign or multiplayer from the beginning.

    5. Once all of your gta 5 hard drive files are deleted, turn your Xbox console off, remove the hard drive, and add the new or other hard drive. I think you can only change hard drives for the old Xbox 360. Not sure if the newer models come with changeable
    hard drives.

    By the way, if you replace or add a new hard drive you need to buy a "hard drive transfer cable" that transfers content from one hard drive to the other. It is available at your local game store.

    Also, in order to transfer content from one hard drive to another. The old or current hard drive needs to be connected to the console, while the new hard drive needs to be connected to the cable. The transfer cable comes with directions, just follow them.

    Once all the content has been transferred turn the console off, insert the new hard drive, turn the console on, insert the "install" disc for gta 5 and try loading the files again.

    If you are still having an issue you can contact Xbox customer support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX or chat with a representative online at the following link:

    support.xbox.com/.../contact-us

    Also check out this link, which is the Xbox online support page. It has a great deal of useful information on how to solve issues regarding your Xbox console, account and other things:

    Freeze on save in Skyrim and can't even get past the loading screen in GTA V

    If GTA V is indeed downloaded from the marketplace and not a disc, try this.

    Delete GTA V and clear your cache 3 times.

    Restart your console.

    Download 16 GB of demos (this is how big GTA V will be in the end)

    Once those have finished download all the GTA V files from your download history (GTA V, Installation Packs 1-4)

    After you've done that, feel free to delete the demos.

    This worked for me, hopefully it works for you too!
