    Playing a game I own as disc on pc


    When gears 5 first released, I pre ordered it because I am a big fan of the franchise. I recently got a new pc and I saw that I could play gears 5 on here but I got the disc version, the pc is a upgrade from the Xbox one I have because its just the first one. I can't use the disc on the pc because I heard that it won't read the disc properly, but I don't want to buy the same game I already own again.What can I do?

    :)

    Hi Lisa,

    In order to assist properly, kindly answer the following questions:

    • On which website are you trying to play the game? What is the title of the game?
    • Have you tried using other browsers like Edge?
    • What error message are you getting?
    • Can you provide more details on the troubleshooting steps that you have tried so far?
    • Are you experiencing that same thing using other PCs?

    Your response is highly appreciated.

    CD plays one disc incorrectly

    For us to isolate the issue, we would like to clarify if you were referring to another computer when you said
    "The CD plays fine elsewhere so it is OK." on your first post. If so, is it both running Windows 10 version?

    To identify the exact reason why the issue is happening, we suggest playing the disc manually using the steps below:

    • Type File Explorer on Cortana/Search bar, then click it.
    • On the File Explorer window, click This PC.
    • Right-click on the CD drive then, click Open.

    • The music files will show up, choose a certain music to play.

    Let us know if the music will respond accordingly.

    how to play 360 games

    Hi,

    There are many ways for you to play Xbox 360 games. You can play it on your Xbox 360 console via a digital or a disc copy. Some Xbox 360 games are also backwards compatible with Xbox One. To properly isolate you concern, please answer the questions below:

    • On which device are you trying to play the game?
    • Are you referring to Original Xbox 360 games?
    • Do you want to play the games online or offline?
