    Says I need to buy BF4 but the disc is in the machine


    Its been doing this off and on for a few weeks. I've got a legit store bought copy inside the machine but it says I need to buy it. It redirects me to the store that says I can launch it and that I own it. But it doesn't do anything if I click launch.
    I thought maybe because my Live expired, because I never use it, so I renewed it and still nothing. I've done the power off , restarts etc. Not sure what else to do. It just sometimes works or does this and I dont understand why. And yes I'm signed into the
    proper account.

    :)

    If you buy the disc version of a game you DO need the disc in the machine.

    Gold has nothing to do with it.

    Considering Buying Xbox One

    Yes you can use your GamerTag on each console , no need to buy another Gold sub as one sub works between the two machines , and no , your 360 copy of BF4 will not work on the Xbox One .

    HELP ME!

    Sorry your having trouble. It sounds like your disc has gotten so scratched up it's unreadable. Did you try your copy in your friends machine? Sometimes machines of different ages will read discs another machine will not.

    If an Xbox can't read the disc, it will say it needs the disc you used for the download. It's just looking for a readable copy of the game. I know there are companies, machines and websites out there that claim/have ways to remove scratches and repair discs,
    but I've never used them. If you don't want to try the repair route, I think the only two options you have is buy another copy, or hope your friend will let you borrow his copy until you complete the game. Sorry, I wish I had more for you.

    Halo 4 - Disc Unreadable

    I'm an sorry to say but your disc may have a deep scratch on it. Please follow the following steps.

    1. Take disc out

    2. Check disc for scratches(scratches or burns can cause problems like this)

    3. If scratches are found and are deep, I recommend that you clean the disc with a disc cleaning machine

    4. If all else fails then you may need to buy a new disc.

    Note: clear cache before trying the following steps

    Digital download games to much

    Like everything else you buy... you need to shop around.

    Personally, if the purchase price for a game on GoD is within $10 of the price at a brick and mortar store, I would prefer to buy it from GoD for the convenience of not having a disc to put in the machine (or the risk losing/damaging the disc).
