    Default XBox One S - duff drive

    Hey all,

    So my XB1S took a heavy landing recently and the drive now no longer works - it can eject disks but cannot load them so the disks don't get detected. Anyone know where to get a replacement drive from? or even if it's possible! I know the 360 drives were paired using keys and such like so wondered if this is worth even bothering with? Nearly all my games are digital so I'm not hugely bothered and will be getting an XB1X in the coming months but it would be nice to watch the occasional BD.

    You can buy em here : [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Then you swap the logic board from your knackered drive onto the replacement one.

    I don't believe they changed the optical drive but if it was me I would open it up and look first.

    have you tried the trick of lifting the front up and then put the disc in to see if it loads if this is the case usually just taking it apart and refitting it will cure it
