  1. Xbox One S won’t install disc games, but can read blue ray discs


    Every time I put in an Xbox game, the Xbox doesn’t detect it. I know the discs work because I use them in a different Xbox. When I put in a disc, I hear the same noise on a loop, so I’d assume something’s wrong with the disc drive, but when I put in a blue ray disc, only the blue ray disc starts up. I’ve reset my Xbox, cleared cache, all the things other websites tell me to do, but from what I can tell, my situation is a little unique

    I’m very confused, and I’d gladly accept any help given, thank you.

    Hi,

    Sorry about your problem there.

    If the power cycle doesn't work, then I'm sorry but your console will require a repair.

    The drive that reads discs in your Xbox One is a Blu-ray optical drive. It uses a blue type laser to read the data etched into the Blu-ray discs that Xbox One game discs use. Xbox 360 discs on the other hand are DVD discs. DVD discs are read by a red laser.
    Both the red and the blue lasers are built into the consoles optical drive as a complete package.

    Sometimes one of the laser mechanisms will fail. So you'll either have Xbox One discs (and Blu-ray films) read fine, but DVD discs - both Xbox games, and DVD movie discs - not be read. It can also happen the other way around.

    There is no way to fix this yourself. You would have to send the whole unit off to Microsoft for a repair.

    Can't install red dead redemption 1

    Hi,

    Do other BC Xbox 360 game discs work on your Xbox One? For the Xbox One to recognise the game and download it from Live it must:

    • Be able to read the disc. Check if the disc is dirty or damaged
    • Have a working Optical drive capable of reading Xbox 360 discs. Try other BC discs or test a DVD movie.

    The Xbox One has two diodes for reading discs in the optical Blu-ray Drive. A red laser is used to read Xbox 360 and DVD movies and a blue laser to read Xbox One games and Blu-ray movies. If the diode for reading DVD's is faulty, BC Xbox 360 discs won't
    work.

    benefits of going digital?

    Depends on the read speed of the Blu-ray drive. I did some research on Wikipedia and PS4's Blu-ray drive and found this...

    .

    "The read-only optical drive will read Blu-ray discs at 6x constant angular velocity for a maximum read speed of 27 MB/s – a significant upgrade from the PS3's 2x speeds that were capped at 9MB/s."

    en.wikipedia.org/.../PlayStation_4_technical_specifications

    "Like PlayStation 3, the Blu-ray Disc drive should be capable of reading 16-layer 400 GB discs"

    en.wikipedia.org/.../Ps4

    .

    M hasn't released officially any specific info of the read speed for Xbox One of it's Blu-ray drive. Maybe it will also depend on the read speed of Xbox One's HDD? Whether it will be a 5400rpm or 7200rpm. I think both digital and disc should be around the
    same for loading times, since games from disc have to be installed for Xbox One just like digital downloads will also be installed onto the HDD.

    Simple Enquiry...

    Xbox One discs are Dual Layer BD-ROM discs 50 GB, which is pretty much standard now. In addition, the One S and the One X can also read UHD Blu-ray feature film discs. Neither the One S or One X can read BDXL discs, I don't know enough about the hardware
    to say for sure if this is due to a hardware or software issue. Note that despite the similar storage capabilities, UHD Movie Blu-ray discs are factory pressed, while BDXL is a writable format largely for burning discs with a PC.

    Despite the One S and the One X's ability to read UHD discs, they will not be used for Game media.

    Why my xbox 360 won't read halo 4?

    Has the disc played successfully on your console previously? As simply saying it won`t play is not enough information for any of us to work with to try and help you.

    Also, since Halo 4 is a two disc game, are you inserting the correct disc as one is the game disc and the other is the installation disc?
    Yes, it's been played before on my xbox and yes I've been inserting the disc 1 which contains the game itself. However, one day out of the blue my xbox didn't play it.
