Disc drive number 2 just went out! Never been this frustrated with a purchase!

#1XXXRiceWVXXXPosted 2/13/2014 6:38:33 AM
MS sent me a new X1 about a week ago, just got the hold taken off my card yesterday. Now the replacement console just started doing the same thing. What causes this to happen? Is the laser weak or are the drives just drunk. Kinda upset that they sent me one that's doing it again.

This one isn't completely out, but I had to insert Dead Rising 3 over 15 times to get it to finally read the disc.

Ouch, reminds me of my 360 days in 2008.

I dunno, but I would take full advantage of this and contact them, to raise much, much hell and to try and suck every bit of free item from them

I believe for this one person, he got a new Xbone, extra controller and like 3 games

I had the same problem with the original Xbox, went through 5 consoles with faulty disc drives before I finally got one that worked and still does work. I had the same problem with the 360 too, as well as RROD. My slim 360 has given me no problems at all though. I have always had problems with Microsoft hardware, at least within the first 3 years of them being on the market. They just seem to be designed and built like complete crap from my experience until a revision (like the slim 360) comes out.

MS didn't send you a new console, they sent you a refurb. You started with a new console but it broke and MS sent you a refurb that broke.

This, so much. Write down the serial number of your Xbox before sending it in next time, guaranteed you do not get the same one back.

Sad and douchey but that's what they do.

Definitely irritating, as soon as I heard the grind again I just dropped my head and laughed.
