I've been having a recent issue to where I can no longer seem to play games (at least on discs) on my Xbox 360 S anymore. Whenever I put a disc in the tray and close it, it says it is "reading" for literally a second then automatically changes to that it is opening.... but isn't opening at all. It started playing discs after a while but now it is getting worse to the point where it no longer wants to change from that Opening status. It also seemed to randomly go to the opening status during games really wrecking my fun. I checked the support website and it didn't have any option related to this at all to select and when calling customer support, they just had me go through the same thing (not happy about that..) I've cleared the cache of the HD, checked for any corrupted data, removed the disc while doing so, tried different discs, clean discs, etc etc etc. This is coming to the point of frustration that I decided to see who else is receiving the issue. While surfing around, I found these websites:
For those that didn't wish to read them, they basically say that there has been an issue with the Disc Drive not reading games since one of the updates and I was thinking, "Hey! This issue began after the most recent update." This gets me to my point of wondering if the issue is at all related to this or not. I know the last link speaks of giving away a free console and a Year of Xbox LIve fixed, but I just want the thing fixed, nothing more.
Lastly: Is anyone else having this issue besides me? I would like to know that it isn't just related to me or if anyone has any info on how to fix it, whether it is related to the recent issue, or if that it may just be singled out to me. Thanks everyone.
