Just to make things clear for everybody, make sure no one delete your game save, its the biggest file that you will have to delete, to all the noobs out there:D

Just put the game in (you're going to need it to reinstall anyway) and hit Y at the disc panel, the same way you would to install it. The install option is changed to 'delete install' if it's already installed, so just use that.

Just noticed the install files are now called "Installed Xbox 360 Game" instead of just "Xbox 360 Game". Makes me less nervous about accidentally deleting saves when I'm going around deleting install files.

Am I doing something wrong? I drleted my games and reinstalled them but I've not saved any space at all! RE5 is still 6.7GB

I have a UK 360 with a 120GB HDD if that means anything! And yes I did get the second update.

Edit: nevermind, it's just RE5. The other games have lost a lot more of their size, nice :D

If you go in Hard Drive options, they have CLEAR CACHE option. I guess they thought everyone figured it out by now. Secondly Pressing X to eject the dvd tray is a neat little option.

When 360 discs are authored, they use a tool to ensure the data that needs to be on the fast parts of the DVD is. Perhaps they've found a way to remove the padding introduced as a result from the images?

I wonder if I can recover my old gamertag. It got shut down or something because the credit card I was using with it was canceled (I had my current account at the time).

Yeah, movies from my external hard drive quit working but movies I stream from my PC STILL work.

No idea why, I tried redownloading the update but nothing changed.

I wonder why MS didn't mention the smaller game installs thing. Some of those size savings are pretty significant.

Same thing happened to me, no clue why it's not working for the other guy.

I didn't know where to post this but, episode 2 of Season 4 of Lost has no vocal track! It seems the only way to report this is to call Netflix.

Got an error tonight on not being able to connect to Xbox Live. It asked me to "Test Connection" Once I chose that option, it logged me in automatically before it could test out the connection.

I've got an old gamer tag that I've just recovered that I used on the original xbox, now theoretically if I whack a gold subscription on that acc it 'should' display how old that acc is right ?, or will it only display how many years the acc has been 'active' ?

If you're a silver member for a long time, it's not going to back to 0. I've had periods of silver membership though, and it shows me as 3 years (should be more, but the name I had on the original Xbox got fucked up with a credit card issue).

Pretty sure it's how long you're Gold subscription has been active for.

:-(, oh well, I know I've been a gold member on that old acc longer than my current one so I'll transfer over to that and resubscribe, cheers.

Edit -

Just read the above new posts, thanks alot guys, that sounds promising, I'll resubscribe tonight and let you know the outcome, thanks.

I had the same problem but for some strange reason it's working now and my old CC details have been removed from the acc.

Cool, 5.3 GB for me, that's basically one extra game.

I noticed that the new update introduces a weird 1 sec delay on gears of war 2 during the checkpoint pop-ups. Weird thing is that this only happens if you have the map packs downloaded, for example I started to notice this after downloading the all fronts pack. Anyone else notice this?

I like the stars being there because they look pretty. They are, of course, utterly useless given that every asshole you meet on Live will still have a 5 star rating. The Zones thing is actually a good indicator of the kind of person you might be playing against. Unless I'm just projecting my assumptions onto everybody and they don't have enough time in a match to dispel them :p

I'm in the preview thing, pretty lame so far, all I really care about is last.fm/fb/tw. Will save me nothing as I have no space to install games on my 20gb hard drive :p

The new install sizes would save 2,5GB for me. Considering I still have like 80~GB free, I'm not in a hurry to re-install. :p

Which makes me more interested in the avatar accessories, but the prices there are a real turn-off (320 pts for that warthog lol). Was hoping for unlockable stuff or something.

Oh well.

Well I just got in and added a 12 month live gold sub to my old original xbox live gamer-tag that I recovered today and it tagged me down for 4 years which is not too bad, should of been five really but I can't complain, bit of a bummer starting from practically zero gamer score though but at least I've got my original gamer-tag back.
