Getting GTA4 working without internet on Xbox 360

I do not have an Xbox live account, however I do have internet and a computer available to me. When I tried to put GTA4 into my Xbox it said it needed an update. Since I do not have my console connected to the net I could not get the update and can not play the game.

Is there any way I could download the update onto a disc and put that disc into my Xbox rather than have to hook up the Xbox to the net? If so where could I find the download???

Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Strange. I don't recall needing any update to get GTA IV working.

You get a general update from Xbox Live as soon as you connect your 360 to the internet. Maybe it needs that one?

Could be a Dashboard Update.

Burn a DVD or CD

The other possibility is to download a file from Xbox.com and burn a DVD or CD. Use this method if you don't have your console connected to broadband, or if you use a dialup connection to the Internet. You could even do this at a friend's house who has a broadband Internet connection and a DVD or CD burner.

To create an update disc you need the following:

* A DVD or CD burner.
* A blank writeable DVD or CD.
* The update file from Xbox.com.

This procedure involves burning the DVD or CD by using Microsoft Windows DVD or CD burning software. If you're using third-party CD/DVD writing software, follow the instructions for creating a data disc.

The same steps apply when burning a DVD in a DVD burner.

To create a DVD or CD:

1. Click HERE to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate_[date].zip" anywhere on your computer.
2. Place a blank disc in your burner.

From Windows Explorer, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer or open the CD drive icon.
3. Drag the zipped $SystemUpdate zip folder to the CD Folder. If the CD write window doesn't open by default, drag and drop folder on the CD/DVD RW drive.

Note

If you are using an earlier version of Windows you will need to open the file using a separate utility (for example, WinZip).

4. In the Explorer window, click Write files to CD from the CD writing tasks or right-click the CD/DVD RW drive and select Write these files to CD.

Caution

The update filename and folder structure must be intact for the update to run properly.

5. Follow the steps in the CD wizard.

When you are finished with the wizard, the CD will eject. Your CD is ready.

To update the console:

1. Place the CD in the Xbox 360 console.
2. Power cycle the Xbox 360 console.
3. The update program will start automatically. Select "Yes, update now" and press the A button.
4. Wait for the update to complete.
5. The console will reboot and you're done.
The Update says 2007 so I assume it's the Fall/Autumn Update.

Failing that, just connecting the Xbox to your PC and creating a Free Silver Account will allow you to Update.

When you say you have an internet connection available to you, do you mean a personal one (or a friends) or do you mean a public connection like a library/school?

If you have a friend with the internet, my suggestion would be to take your console to their house and use their internet connection to get the updates.

Don't even need to do that, just the HDD is all you would need.
