  1. Awful Disc Tray Scenario!


    Hey guys.

    Just came upon a really hard problem with the disc tray of my buddies.

    His toddler son pushed a debit card into his consoles disc tray...

    I have no idea how to help him! The best I could think of was the possibility of using the manual disc eject method.

    What do you guys think?

    (Also, best jab about it among his buddies is: "500 dollar debit card vault.")

    :)

    The "I moved my console and it scratched the disc" scenario has been known about since just after the 360 was launched.

    Don`t move your console with a disc in the tray!

    Leaving Games In The Console

    I usually just leave the disc in the tray until I get ready to play a different game or watch a movie. The way I see it, if you remove a disc from the disc tray every time you finish playing a game or watching a movie, it puts more wear and tear on the mechanisms that control the tray. If you can minimize the opening and closing, you can avoid wearing out your disc tray prematurely.

    Awful Disc Tray Scenario!

    Depending how far it went in would depend on the best way of trying to get it out.

    Long needle nose pliers or tweezers may be your best starting point if you can see the card in the drive slot.

    Unplug the console and face the drive down and tap on the back of the console, see if it makes the card emerge enough to grab it. Don't knock too hard, you don't want any electronics inside getting knocked loose.

    The manual eject may not reach the card to push it out, don't put a disc in there to try to get them pushed out together as that could cause more damage to console and disc.

    If all else fails, contact the bank and cancel the card and then contact Microsoft to return the console explaining what happened.

    Xbox one S digital edition

    Currently I purchase the Xbox One S All Digital for my sons rooms So now my son and family can play my digital games and GamePass titles without worrying about the disc tray.

    It's a great option for this type of scenario

    Xbox one after DRM

    These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based
    games will require that the disc be in the tray.

    Specifically- Will the gold membership still apply to the other users on the console so that they can to play games online?
