What is causing Xbox One error 0X82D40004?

  1. Insert the game disc. Even though the game might already be installed on your Xbox, the physical disc is needed to check the license before it can be launched.
  2. If the disc is already loaded, see if it’s dirty or scratched. If needed, wipe the disc with a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth. Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom faces.
  3. Then re-insert it and try launching again.

What to do if that hasn’t worked for you

The next thing you can try is simply restarting the Xbox and see if it was a glitch causing the issue.

If that doesn’t work then you can try uninstalling and then reinstalling the game you are trying to play, although this could be a long process depending on your WiFi speed. Please note: This shouldn’t erase your game saved data if you don’t delete the data saved within the Xbox relating to that game.

To do this, starting from the Xbox One home screen, press the Xbox button to bring up the dashboard, then select the “My Games & Apps.” Highlight the tile of the game you would like to remove from your hard drive and press the Menu button on your controller.

Select “Manage Game” from the pop-up menu that appears.  Choose “Uninstall all,” and the game will be removed from your hard drive. Then reinstall the game when it gives you the option to.
