    Disc reading problems


    'Been having some trouble with my Xbox one and its disc reader this past week, at first it was every once and a while, now i cant get it to work at all.

    I put the disc in the xbox disc tray and it sometimes makes a short "grinding" noise, then a pop up says the disc cant be read, i will eject the disc and put it back in multiple times with the same results... There no getting around this other than sending
    in my xbox for warranty repairs is there?

    :)

    Disc Reading Problems

    Is there a circle going around the disk, on the bottom? This happens when you move your console while the disk is spinning, and will make those portions (or even the whole game) unplayable. I do believe Gamestop does it, and I am pretty sure it's fairly
    cheap.

    Disc reading problems

    Hi oButterBot,

    Sounds like you do possibly have a faulty disc drive that would need you Xbox One servicing under the warranty repair, however one thing that might be worth trying first is if you have a disc drive cleaner put it in the drive for a minute or two and trying
    playing a game again.

    disc read problems

    Sadly, as of right now it is just that the console optical disc drive, or the disc drive itself has gone defective, and you need to set up a repair for the console. With this, you can set up a repair 1 of 2 ways:

    1) Go to myservice.xbox.com and set up a repair there

    2) Call 1-800-4MyXbox, and set up a repair through an agent.

    I personally would choose the 1st option. No wait, and its pretty simple.

    If you do need any help setting up a repair, please respond to this thread so that I may continue to assist you.

    Hope this helps

    All these disc 'repairs' do, is either:

    A. Fill in the scratches in the layer with plastic (Doesn't work very well)

    B. Sand off a small amount of the disc plastic surface, so the scratches aren't that deep.

    Regular DVDs are thicker (even if it's micro millimeters), than newer Xbox 360 games. If you for example, take an Xbox 360 game from 2007, and then take one from today, you'll notice a significant weight and thickness difference. Disc repair methods normally
    don't do anything to 'regular' thickness DVDs.

    Unfortunately, because this is a 'newer' game, the middle of the disc (which is where the game ID and boot information is stored) probably got sanded or damaged. Your disc is probably useless if it doesn't work in any consoles.

    Problem reading discs

    This is the second Xbox x in a month doing the same and the reason I changed it was doing all the resets and wiping it completely it still doesn't work, it plays blu ray and games but not DVD. It needs to be sorted out especially as it's supposed to be
    an entertainment system and so expensive!

    Reading disc problem

    If you are doing nothing wrong, you won't get banned. It maybe the disk can't play because of the scratches. Do other games work OK??

    Hey Taff thanks for keeping in touch.

    We suggest

    from one of our Xbox Support Specialists since this could be a licensing issue on the Blu Ray player side. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes!
