So this could be the wrong thread for this?
Its a hardware/game issue I have (move if so needed)
When I play on my actual disc, I get slower load times :'c
But when I use my backed up version, the game completely freezes for me
for like 5 seconds, then continues at random intervals. every 5-20 minutes
edit: I used ultraiso on default setting back when i had windows 7
My HDD is a 5400rpm laptop Blue WD drive in a USB2.0 External case.
Sometimes I can hear my external hdd "wirr" up when this happens
This is with FFx and FFx-2, pretty sure its every game i have
edit: actually seems to happen most with ff-12
This has occurred on windows 7 and 8, but slightly less since the switch, or maybe not.
Idk now I mostly use my discs, but I don't want to make any wear to them ;_;
PS: I bought the entire gta & mortal kombat collection's @ wall-mart for 20$ (comes in a case that stores all the cases, you should check it out if you can find one at your local wall-mart)
