Use this guide to replace a faulty optical drive in an Xbox Series X.

Before you begin, completely power down and unplug all cables from your console. Remember to follow general electrostatic discharge (ESD) safety procedures while repairing the console.

The board inside the optical drive is software-linked to the console’s motherboard. This board will need to be transferred into the replacement optical drive to restore full functionality. This will require you to de-solder and solder two wires. Follow general soldering safety guidelines such as wearing eye protection, working in a well-ventilated area, and washing your hands after with soap and water after soldering.

  1. Before starting this guide, power down your console and unplug all cables. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the sticker hiding the first screw on the back panel, near the base.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the sticker hiding the first screw on the back panel, near the base.

  2. Use a pair of blunt tweezers to peel back the large sticker on the back panel to reveal the second screw. You only need to peel this sticker to where you can access the hidden screw. You don't need to pull it completely off. Technically, these are tamper-evident stickers—but don't worry—Microsoft can't legally void your warranty, as long as you don't damage anything. Have fun!

    • Use a T8 Torx driver to remove the two 7.4 mm screws securing the back panel.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your console.

  3. Insert the flat end of a spudger into the gap between the back panel and the shell, near the left side of the base. Pivot the spudger on the shell and pull up on the bottom of the back panel to release it from the locking clips.

    • Pivot the spudger on the shell and pull up on the bottom of the back panel to release it from the locking clips.

  5. Grip the back panel at the opening you just created and pull it up and away from the shell to unclip the long edges. During reassembly, press along the edges of the back panel to snap it into place. During reassembly, press along the edges of the back panel to snap it into place.

  6. The back panel slots into a gap at the top of the shell. Tilt the back panel up and pull it away from the top edge of the shell to release it from the gap. Remove the back panel.
    • The back panel slots into a gap at the top of the shell.

    • Tilt the back panel up and pull it away from the top edge of the shell to release it from the gap.

    • Remove the back panel.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift up on the locking tab holding the base to the shell.

  8. Grip the base and rotate it counterclockwise to unlock it from the shell. You may need to hold the locking tab open while you get the base started. Remove the base.
    • Grip the base and rotate it counterclockwise to unlock it from the shell.

    • You may need to hold the locking tab open while you get the base started.

    • Remove the base.

    • During reassembly, drop the base tabs into their holes on the shell and twist clockwise until the base snaps into the interior locking tab.

    • When locked in place, the "Hello from Seattle" line will be parallel with the device's sides.

  9. Use a T8 Torx driver to remove the two 8.8 mm screws securing the optical drive's vibration isolator to the shell: one on the base and one on the top of the isolator.

  10. Lift up the optical drive's vibration isolator to remove it. The vibration isolator grips the sides of the optical drive with silicone pads, so you may need to "walk" the isolator off of the drive to slip it off each side. During reassembly, ensure the vibration isolator is pushed down and around both edges of the optical drive, so it sits flush with the rest of the center chassis.

Where can I get a replacement disk drive for my Series X? Figures the warranty just ran out last month and now the disk drive wants to start acting stupid. Doing the same exact thing my One X did where it'll read some discs no problem but won't read others. Just got Guardians of the Galaxy brand new, first time ever taking it out of it's case and inserted directly into the console and it won't read.
