    The second thing you’ll want to try is cleaning the reflective surface on the disc with a soft , slightly damp cloth (water only!), lightly wiping from the inside out.

    If that doesn’t resolve your issue, please try some of the steps listed below, depending on if you’re trying to play a game, DVD, or music CD. Alternatively, if you'd like to try an interactive approach, be sure to check the official troubleshooter on support.xbox.com.

    Games

    Clear your cache

    Your cache stores items such as game and system updates and gamer pictures. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your saves or profile by clearing the cache.

    To clear your cache, navigate to the ‘My Xbox’ channel in the dashboard menu, within which you can select ‘System Settings’. Select ‘memory,’ highlight the HDD, and press (Y). Select ‘Clear System Cache,’ then ‘Yes.’

    Remove your Hard Drive

    If the game starts with the hard drive removed, then power off the console, remove the hard drive, reinsert the hard drive and after try the game again.

    If it doesn’t work only with the hard drive attached, then your hard drive will need to be replaced.

    Removing any other memory units or USB flash drives

    If removing one of these resolves the issue, then power down the console and try again with the drive reattached. If the game doesn’t work only with the device in question attached, it will have to be replaced (or if it’s a USB, reformatted).

    Try a different game disc

    If a different game disc works, the first disc will need to be replaced. If other game discs also do not work, you’ll want to check your warranty status and set up a repair here.

    DVDs

    Try another DVD

    If a different DVD plays without issue, the first will need to be replaced. If the second DVD does not work either, you will want to check your warranty status and set up a repair here.

    CDs

    Check the CD format and file type

    Supported formats include:

    CD-DA

    CD-ROM

    CD-ROM XA

    CD-R, CD-RW

    CD-Extra.

    Supported file types include:

    WMA

    MP3

    JPEG

    Try another CD

    If the second CD works (that has the same format and file type), the first will need to be replaced.If the second CD doesn’t work, you’ll want to check your console’s warranty and set up a repair here.

    But I still have questions!

  5. Is this BF4? Just had that problem for the first time. I quit the game, started it again and it worked fine. BF4 doesn't resume cleanly when you switch apps or power down (but not off).

    Just don't mention DA2 at all. If everyone stops talking about it then it'll just fade out of existence.

    It's nothing like Dragon Age. You may want to watch a few YouTube gameplays with commentary. I had an idea of what to expect going into this even though I never played Demon Souls, and it's way better than I thought it would be. Traditional RPG expectations
    should be put aside. It's Zelda set in the 9th Circle of Hell. You will be given very little direction. There's no story to hold your hand. In all honesty, it's not for everyone.

    does the game have a black ring if so the game is broken.

    Hey OrT, did you just redeem a Gold subscription? It can take time for those to become active. You're currently showing as Gold, however.

    If this is the account it is still a silver account. This account will need to be gold.
