    Xbox One Disc Drive Whirring noise when inserting a disc


    Hi all,

    I'm here mainly to fill you in on an ongoing fiasco with Microsoft at the moment. Over 2 weeks ago I heard a loud whirring noise any time i put a disc in the Xbox, but i noticed that maybe 1 in 5 times i put the disc in that it would play and the noise would
    disappear. Fearing that it would give up sometime soon I ordered an advanced exchange from the Service Centre. This would have taken 3-5 days. 3 Days later I'm tracking the parcel on UPS website and it says it is near my house and is in van for delivery. I
    wait, and wait and wait and all of a sudden the status changes to "Return to Sender: Recipient Refused Delivery". Being that I had taken day off work to receive this package and I know for a fact that nobody came to my door that entire day, UPS or Microsoft
    had made a mess up somewhere. I checked with support and they had my address right so I've no idea what happened.

    So from here, I thought this sucks, but they'll just send another one out. No. It has to be passed to various different departments, all of whom have successfully ignored every email I have sent. I was told it wasn't as simple to just resend package, it
    has to be passed to the Tech Team, so It's passed to them and Im told theres a 4 day turn around and they will contact you with an answer then. I wait four days, on that evening i get a response saying thanks for your correspondence, we will contact you within
    2-3 days. We are now out of that time scale now and I have absolutely no answer or idea what is going to happen. I contact the call centre who are all very nice but none can say anything different other than the Tech Team have it now and there's nothing we
    can do.

    Through my frustration I think Ill just go online and shoot some people, to relieve the stress. Counting myself lucky that the xbox still "kind of" worked sometimes. So Im trying and trying to get disc working but it won't work. Then i realise through my
    efforts of doing so that the central hole through my battlefield disc has been grinded almost right through. The noise I am hearing is that the disc is going in but not in position and it is not turning when the "spinning disc holder thingy" is moving and
    therefore the noise is it grinding through the disc. Would it not have been sound advice from someone at Microsoft, whom I told that it still worked now and again, for them to say, DO NOT USE disc drive whilst this replacement process is ongoing. To save my
    breaking my own disc.

    I don't really believe posting my woes here serves any other purpose than to warn anyone who ends up having the same issue that

    A: if the delivery of new console goes wrong, Microsoft will disown and forget about you.

    B: Do Not Keep trying to get the disc to work as you will end up wrecking the game disc just like I have done.

    Thanks for reading.



    P.S. With the advanced exchange for any of you who don't know what it is, you provide a credit card and Microsoft will send you out a new console first, then when you receive it you put your broken xbox in the box the new one came in and post it back. The
    reason for the credit card is in case someone decided to keep both consoles, credit card is used as insurance. You have 14 days to send you console back or they will charge your card £326.

    I haven't received my new console, but Im willing to bet that in the next few days, my credit card is going to be charged £326. Not out of spite, but its just the way this whole thing has been dealt with that I hold no faith that it isnt going to get worse
    before it gets better.

    Thanks again.

    :)

    Disc Drive Does Not Accept Discs

    the disc drive in the replacement xbox one console i received from microsoft makes a whirring noise when inserting a disc... only while it is accepting the disc. sounds like it might be the motor that pulls the disc inside the drive. anyone having any issues
    with this?

    Was in preview, disc drive "whirs" (not grinding) but doesn't recognize discs

    @Tootie SAME EXACT SITUATION AS ME. I used to be a part of the preview updates (my Xbox worked perfectly beforehand), but now every initial disc insert has the disc drive taking in the disc, spin the disc, but doesn't recognize that its there so the dashboard
    still says "insert disc". When I press eject, the disc drive ejects it, but then pulls back in the disc, actually reads the disc (you hear the drive actually read it, not just whir) and reads it properly. Subsequent disc inserts work properly.

    I know of another one having the exact issue as us, that's why I think this is a software issue. Let's hope for a patch in June!

    Cheers!

    Question concerning Xbox one x disk drive

    Hi there,

    We understand your concern of the noise your disc drive makes on occasion when inputting discs in to play. I'd be happy to provide some information.

    Generally, we want to put the disc in at the same level as the Xbox and slowly to let the disc drive take the disc and insert into it's position where it will spin and have an optical laser read the disc. If for whatever reason the angle you insert the disc
    causes the disc drive to insert the disc in the incorrect position, the noise generally comes from the disc hitting the sides or being impeded by something internally.

    I suggest either moving the Xbox to a higher level, or get down to the level the disc drive is in and insert the disc straight in. If the console continues to make noise when inserting the disc, then you will need to send in your Xbox for repair. This article
    helps with going through the repair process if needed:

    xbox one s with ventilation noise

    What do you mean by "ventilation noise"? Can you describe it with a little more detail?

    The only thing you should hear is the system fan whirring, the hard drive making spinny/clicky noises, and the disc drive spinning the disc.
