My Xbox One is refusing to read games

I've recently received my brand new Xbox One CoD ghosts bundle and is less than a day old. Once I finished setting up the Xbox and installing updates, I inserted the game disc into the Xbox and it is refusing to read the disk saying "Sorry, we are unable to play this disc - Try an Xbox One game, a music CD, or a movie on Blu-ray or DVD. (0x80820002)". Without thinking I first tried a power cycle with no success, then I tried inserting a movie (specifically DVD) as well as a music CD they both worked with no problems. So far I'm stuck with an Xbox playing all but what's important, Games. What do?

Hey everyone!

Sorry to hear about the error code issue and any inconveniences this may have caused.  We believe that the issue has been resolved.  If you are continuing to experience error code 0x80820002 then please give a few troubleshooting steps a try:

  • Make sure your Xbox One console is placed horizontally on a flat, stable surface.
