    Disc drive & apps...


    Since the March update I have been having issues pop up a few times each week. The 1st issue is with the disc drive, sometimes it will make a stuttering sound when the disc is inserted and not load and sometimes I will get the disc error telling me to eject
    the disc and make sure it's not damaged or dirty. The 2nd issue is with the apps, which when selected will start to load and then just stop with the emblem on the screen. Once this happens the only way to get them to work is to power down by holding the
    power button until it shuts down. These seem to be due to the last update, and not the hardware as I have had these issues in the past with 1 or 2 previous updates. My system was working great until the middle of March, so please fix this A.S.A.P.!

    :)

    Disc Drive App

    Never has been a disc drive app on the Xbox One platform. There is a notification icon on the dashboard if you have a disc inserted, but this has never been an 'App'.

    If you have to keep removing a disc and re-inserting it to play, there is clearly a hardware fault with the console. If your Blu-ray drive is failing, a 'disc drive app' would make no difference.

    Disc Drive App

    Hi, There has never been a disc drive app that tells you if the disc in the drive or not. If the drive recognizes a disc, then it will show, if it doesn't, then it wont. That is how it has always been.

    If my reply seemed rude and abrupt, I apologise. And I can understand your frustration with your broken console.

    What you're describing is like double clicking on a DVD or Blu-ray drive in Windows, attempting to read a disc. Problem is, if the drive itself is faulty, no matter how many times you double click or re-insert the disc, it's not going to make much difference.

    Perhaps you would like some kind of disc reading checking ability troubleshooting as part of a new system update?

    Will still get a few posts here about failed drives, although not as many as the 360 days - mainly because games run entirely from the hard drive now, with the Blu-ray drive only being used to install games from disc and initial reads for anti-piracy purposes
    once a disc game is installed.

    Despite this, the Xbox One Blu-ray drive is a mechanical unit, and as such, it's not a case of 'if' it will fail, it's 'when'. A well built drive can last years, alas, this isn't always the case.

    You're not talking about the disc drive tile by any chance which pops up on the dashboard whenever you insert a disc after it has been read?

    Yes, I know its not an 'APP' its just easier to describe the tile that way and YES, i know its a hardware fault... i'm not a moron. Having a tile that you can press to re-attempt reading a disc or at least give some indication of a disc in the drive is a
    damn site easier to troubleshoot than sitting on the floor popping a disc in and out all of the time with no feedback at all other than a whirling drive sound.

    .... and YES there was a blank tile that showed discs on the original xbox one. It wasnt an app, it was just there by default. It had a blank disc icon when no disc was inserted, it didn't pop up AFTER the disc was inserted it was just there BUT they removed
    it a really long time ago.
