When I'm playing a game from either my internal or external drive, there is a ~1/2 second slowdown at certain points, such as in RE Revelations going through a door, Batman AC at various points while flying around the city, and while driving around in GTA IV. I can't tell if this is normal or if I have a faulty system. It's an RGH Falcon.

It might just be a simple fps drop.
Or rendering the gpu can't handle right at that second.

I wouldn't worry about it pal.

Such small changes happen on normal Xboxs. Its just cause the Xbox is old.

Well I'm not really primarily concerned about the hardware dying, the slowdowns disrupt the flow of the gameplay and honestly really bothers me.

O oblivioncth : Is that definitely the reason? And is there any way it can be improved?

Do you have an 8GB flash drive to put a game on it? It may be that the HDDs are both old and have corrupted data, causing the read head to slow down. It could also be overheating or something along those lines. An Xbox is just a specified computer, do what you normally do with yours to make it run better.

I would take iMoses' suggestions. Nearly fully or cluttered HDDs/Flash Drives can easily cause slow down, as can poor quality ones.

I don't have a USB flash drive unfortunately. Is there any way I can install an fps counter onto my RGH so I can find out if I have framerate problems and if so how bad it is?
