    What New Games playing off Disc even after HDD install

    What's with all these new games coming out that play off the disc for like 90 seconds after loading even when I have installed them onto the hard drive? Kingdoms of Amalur just did it after I installed it. Skyrim also does it Anyone care to shed some light on why they do this? None of my older games do it.

    I thought it was just a security thing added to newer games to check for piracy. Gears 3 does it as well

    all my XGD3 games do that!
    Before I start my games, I play an mp3 from my HDD and then start the game.
    It makes short noises, like a XGD2 game!

    It's the new format. All of them do this, some kind of checks after booting. Stops after a few minutes, it's no issue and nothing is wrong.
