Disc drive making loud noises when playing a game

At idle its whispers quiet as well as running apps like netflix. When i pop in a game however it begins making this raspy loud drive noise. Is this normal or should I contact support? At first i thought it was cod but i popped in ac4 and same deal.

It reads all disc formats though. Will I have a case to say I have a faulty drive? I'm sure support is gna come up with a bs answer that what I'm experiencing is normal..

Without actually being able to hear it it's kinda hard to say, but I would say that if the noise is causing you concern then it's probably not normal and you should contact support. Probably a faulty disc drive.

The Xbone definitely runs louder when you have a disc in, but as long as you're not getting that wood chipper grinding noise you're probably fine.

If your worried about it I'm sure you could return it with no hassles. It's not like they actually turn the things on when you return them to see if your lying or not.

Alright thanks guys. One more question, when they put the $527 hold on my bank account do i have to have the amount in there for the hold to go through? I keep a low balance.

Try returning it to the store 1st. And them charging you. Maybe they only do that if they send a new system right away and they wait to get your xbox. That's the only way I can see them doing that.
