When we talk about current consoles, we should rather talk about multimedia centers. Whether it’s Sony and its PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X, we are faced with equipment capable of playing content via UHD Blu-ray and this is where users complain about how Xbox works Series X.
Apparently, some owners of Xbox Series X consoles are reporting issues playing 100GB UHD Triple Layer Blu-ray discs. They even talk about excessive noise generated when playing the disc in service.
Complaints on Reddit
The Xbox Series X includes a UHD Blu-ray disc player. And in this regard, users complain in Reddit threads about problems when they have to read triple-layer discs, those that offer 100 GB of capacity.
“For those who don’t know, 4K Blu-ray movies are usually printed on 2 different types of discs, a 66GB dual-layer disc or a 100GB triple-layer disc. If I put a 100GB 4K disc in Go (which, at this point, there are a decent number of 4K Blu-rays out there), plays everything at 1 – 2fps with no audio, which takes a few minutes to get through the opening studio logo , which is like 10 seconds on the best-case scenario”.
The problems relate to these types of discs and not to the lower capacity dual-layer discs. Flaws that can be generated by playback without audio, very slow loading times or jerky playback.
In this regard, users refer to two films as an example: “The Lord of the Rings” and “Tennet”. These are two of the titles that can cause playback problems. There is also a full list of 100GB triple layer drives at this link.
This is one of the problems, but not the only one, since also on Reddit other users complain of excessive noise when playing one of these discs. A sound level that can be reduced by placing the Xbox Series X in horizontal mode, according to some affected parties.
