I just got Titanfall 2 as a present. I put it in the console, updated, and it started spinning loudly then stopping on repeat. It had a steady rhythm, one second on, one second off, and very loud. I've never had a problem like this with any other disk. Suggestions?
Check the disc for any damage, it sounds like the console is having difficulty reading from the disc.
I checked. No scratches, smudges or hairs. That was my guess too. No other discs are having a hard time being read, but I don't see any reason this new disc should be having trouble. The spinning on and off is too loud to play with (very high pitch)
Even if you are able to play the game, you may still be able to get a replacement disc if your console is having difficulty reading it.
Slightly more difficult if the game was a gift but probably not impossible.
