The Xbox Series X is already out, and with that number of games that are now enhanced and play much smoother on more powerful hardware. However, there’s a little problem that started swirling on social media.

It appears that the Xbox Series X is having a faulty disc drive, a unit that is supposed to read old Xbox video games discs, which are supported through backward compatibility.

It’s not only one user that reported this issue. Everyone that has this problem is currently seeking help from Microsoft, as they’re unsure if their new Xbox Series X’s disc drive is defective or not. Multiple others have reported the same issue:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
