If you are having the problem of 'alert - can not read install data from hard drive, please re-install if this occurs' or gta v freezes during the first mission, every 5-30 minutes etc. I know them both - I have a old white arcade 20Gb console and I know solutions.. without using a usb or buying a new hard drive! (Btw I am mainly a pc guy)
Xbox support have issued the following recommendation, although I would ignore the second disc install.
Delete all GTA 5 game data.
Clear system cache three times.
Delete marketplace data from storage system items.
Unplug console for three minutes.
Install disc 1.
Power off, do not insert disc 2.
Install disc 2.
This was posted by a fellow xbox ambassador of mine on the xbox forums. This solution works, I can not stress how much system cache needs to be cleared - and power off after installed disk 1.
If you're install is fine - then you need to clear system cache 3 times and marketplace data - then come back to the xbox in five minutes (worked for me).
This method has solved BOTH of the problems indicated with the white arcade 2006-2008 edition xbox 360's (early adopters of xbox here!)
Storage reading data failure
Freezes (at any point of game, if not on first mission just clear system and marketplace data, don't normally need a full re-install but in some cases you will)
Note: Do not install the second disk 2 to the hard drive - or same storage device as GTA V. I have not installed the second disk personally and the game runs fine. Also deleting old games you never played/ or play any more generally helps - it helped me. Or at least some old save files (not everything is needed)!
Q.1: How to clear system cache?
A: Press y when selected on the storage device, then click clear system cache.. this should be the same if you just delete from the system items.
Any more questions? Comment it below, you will receive a reply within 24 hours!
If this post has helped you guys, let me know!
Enjoy playing GTA V!
Also: if a admin/mod wants to pin this, feel free to keep it pinned until they release a patch (if they do, that is!).
